Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
How long has it been since you had your last menstrual period ?
Excessive sweating in post menopausal women could be due to the decline in estrogen levels which causes all menopausal symptoms such as dry vagina , hot flushes etc .
However you have got an autoimmune condition in CREST so other autoimmune conditions can co-exist . Hyperactive thyoid is one such condition that can cause excessive sweating so you must get your thyroid tests done .
Baseline tests like Complete blood count and ESR must be done to get clues on more serious causes like lymphomas or cancers.
Drugs like Glycopyrrolate can be helpful.
I hope you find it useful.
Let me know if you have any more queries.
