    it seems that you may have what is called hyperhidrosis which is the condition of excessive sweating. you said you have had your thyroid checked but maybe try getting you pituitary gland checked as well. there are quite a few things that can cause hyperhidrosis, so my recomendaton is to look it up as in order for me to tell you everything it would be faster and better written out for you on say wikipedia or webmd.

    like i said there are numerous things that can cause it and the process of elimination is probablt the way you will have to go to find the cause and treat it.

    Hopefully, you can find better doctors. Try to find a gyn who knows a lot about hormones. Or an endocrinologist. It doesn't begin and end with the thyroid. Temperature regulation and hormones can be very complex. Unfortunately, it is too easy for doctors to blow you off after they look at the first couple of obvious things, and your health isn't directly threatened.

    Also, there are prescription antiperspirants. Try hard not to let the doc push you out of the office quickly, with no answers.
