What causes profuse sweating in lumbar region?

I am a 60 year old male, in good physical condition with history of elevated cholesterol (controlled with medication), and chronic low back pain. For several months now, I have experienced profuse sweating in my lumbar region, so much so that it soaks through my pants and I have to place a napkin between my skin and underwear. My FP said that he does not know what the cause may be....any ideas or recommendations?

Hi,

Sympathetic overactivity of nerve cause increased sweating. You need to consult a neurologist for better understanding/treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
