I am 64 Female and no have not had my thyroid hormone levels chacked
Neurologist: Dr. David, Board Certified MD replied 9 months ago

you should see a doctor to get your thyroid hormone levels checked.

at age 64, you are after your menopause, declines of your body's estrogen levels can cause back sweats and symptoms

estrogen hormone replacement therapy can help with these sweats

black cohosh can help some patients with these sweats

medications like effexor or paxil can help some patients with these sweats
