Brief Answer:
Could be due to hyperthyroidism

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns . generalized sweating could be due to many causes , the most common of which is hyperthyroidism which is increased thyroid hormone secreation . hyperthyroidism also causes fatigue and decreased energy. I would recommend that you take a blood test to check on the levels of your T3,T4 and TSH .
another causes include diabetes but it will be associated with increased thirst, hunger and frequency of urination
also tuberculosis may cause excessive sweating but will be associated with peristent cough ..
I hope I answered your question.
