Brief Answer:
several possibilities can be there..

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX welcome to HCM,

I've gone through your query and understand your concern..

Excessive sweating can be due to several metabolic as well as some psychogenic causes..

Metabolic causes include hyper active thyroid, electrolyte imbalance (specially sodium), uncontrolled suddenly elevated blood pressure, improper sleep habit, improper food habit (too much salty/junk/deep fried/fast foods/excessive consumption of caffeinated drinks and several others)

Psychogenic mainly includes too much stress,anxiety, living in a stressful situation, drinking too much water and a few others..(the feeling low may be a contributory factor in this, needs clinical evaluation)..

So first of all, try to find out which among these are more fitting more appropriately and let me know so that I can guide you further in a more specific manner..

However, considering your age, I don't think hypertension will really be the concern, so please let me know accordingly so that guide you better..

In the meanwhile, it'd be good idea to visit a physician for a detailed clinical examination and a few relevant investigations in this aspect..

Let me know if your having further queries..

Take Care
Kind Regards
