Currently she complains sudden and excessive sweating as frequently as 8-10 times during a day. what could be the reason?

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. She has multiple myeloma. Her excessive sweating is not related to that. It may be due to her thyroid problem.
She should go for T3, T4 and TSH estimation. Then if needed change the dosage of your thyroid medicines according to results.
Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
