sweating heavily, not in a hot flash

Anyone else sweat heavily, not during a hot flash? Just get me in any enclosed space (like the car) and I'm sweating buckets. I can't say I'm feeling that hot even, but my body must think I am. Just had a 8 hour car drive and had to cover the seat and back with towels: this with the vent fans turned to me blasting. No flashing, just constant. I was already wearing a very thin layer of 100% cotton, and no bra (can't stand the bra anymore: it's just a sweat collector). I ended up driving home with my blouse fully open, and not caring who saw me in their rear view mirror!

Hi linnea,
Are you on any other meds? Some other meds can cause alot of sweating.
I sweated constantly in perimenopause. It was like a years-long hot flash!

Nothing new. Relafen (anti-inflammatory for carpal tunnel syndrome), for over 10 years, and loratidine for allergies.
