I'm a 59 y/o post menopause female. I've recently been having occasional sudden cold sweat breakouts during the day while I am doing housework. I'm not overworking myself and it happens maybe once a week, my body breaks out in cold sweat, I feel weak and about to faint where I have to give up in the middle of cooking and go lay down in bed. Only known conditions I have is cervical stenosis where I have neck and shoulder pain as well as discs in my lower back which causes pain.
My BP and cholesterol is controlled. I do drink occasionally but have been drinking a bit more frequently to a family pass away. I have told my doc this and he just said he thinks it might be post menopause symptoms. But I've never had these symptoms before and it only started showing up recently. The only thing I search and end up online is with symptoms related to an oncoming heart attack.. but I don't have chest pain nor breathlessness.
Has anyone had these episodes? Any feedback would be appreciated.
