Hi there,
I am an experienced Medical Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You likely have serious underlying infection --cold sweats are body's response to infection when trying to fight it --lots of inflammatory chemicals released and cause these symptoms including weakness due to nerve inflammation.

Colitis flare up, pneumonia, UTI are such examples.

You should go to the hospital without delay for further evaluation.
