Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) is rather common, and has many causes. It can be due to autoimmune conditions, or something as simple as nervousness, medications, or something as difficult to diagnose as nerve or even brain injury. So it is quite hard to figure out.

It happens often in diabetics, mostly due to fluid overload, and fluid buildup might be the cause in your case. But I suspect that it could be due to other factors if you haven't noticed any swelling in feet or ankles.

Ask your physician, since that is the person who has all your recent medical history available.
