When to see a doctor

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Seek immediate medical attention if your heavy sweating is accompanied by lightheadedness, chest pain or nausea.

Contact your doctor if:

  • You suddenly begin to sweat more than usual.
  • Sweating disrupts your daily routine.
  • You experience night sweats for no apparent reason.
  • Sweating causes emotional distress or social withdrawal.
