Am a man and am 42 years old i don't loss weigh and no fever too
Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Alright well there could be a few causes . At your age things like a hyperactive thyroid gland and lymphoma should be ruled out . You should see your doctor for complete examination to rule out any lumps anywhere . Complete baseline blood work must be done .

Blood sugar levels should be checked preferably during sweating spells as low sugar level can cause excessive sweating .

I hope it answers your query

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
