Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and I'm ready to help.
I am sorry you are having these hot flashes and sweats
you need to get your testosterone levels checked and thyroid hormone levels checked.
low testosterone levels can cause sweats and hot flashes
thyroid abnormalities can cause sweats and hot flashes
you should get blood testing to check for ESR and C reactive protein and ANA to check for autoimmune progress causing these symptoms.
you should get a CT scan of your chest abdomen and pelvis to check for enlarged lymph nodes which can be a sign of lymphoma inside of your body which can cause sweats and hot flashes in rare cases.
have you had your testosterone levels checked?
have you had any weight loss?
