Hi

Welcome to JA and thanks for asking

Extreme sweating can have various reasons including cardiac,hormonal,infective and some tumors.

If you have develop this sweating suddenly you need to get it investigated. Most important thing would be to have an ECG, and blood glucose level checked at the earliest. I would suggest you to visit your nearest ER if this has occurred suddenly.

If this is going on for some time then you can get it investigated through your GP and have above mentioned test and thyroid profile as well. Further investigations will depend upon the findings of your examining physician.

Good luck
