Sweating and anxiety

For the past year or so I've been sweating really bad, mainly on my face, it doesn't matter where I am, all of a sudden i will get a hot flush and start sweating. I also get anxious for no reason which makes me start to sweat even more :(. I've been hypo for 9 years and I'm guessing its down to that, it's really frustrating. Anyone else gone through this?

Please post your current thyroid hormone levels, with reference ranges, so we can determine if you might be over medicated.

Depending on your age, you might also be entering peri-menopause or menopause and sweating/hot flashes are a very common symptom of both of those.

Anxiety can be a symptom of, both, over and under medication.

I having a blood test soon, haven't had my levels checked in 6 months. I'm only 29 so I hope the hot flushes aren't due to the menopause :/
