Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thanks for your query.
Do you have any medical condition like diabetes?
You are under stress now and it can be one of the reasons.
If you have a UTI and are running a fever, you can sweat as the fever leaves you. When was your menopause? Were you on HRT any time? Did you have similar sweating at the time of menopause.
You could get a urine examination done to see what treatment would be advisable for UTI. Also get a CBC and ESR done as a preliminary to see if you require further investigations.
Do get back to me with your results.
