In brief: Depends

Excessive underarm sweating is from adrenaline.
Overall sweating is due to excessive activity of the sympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system.Either way it is the control mechanisms in the lower brain that are "out of balance". Although this might be genetic, the commonest cause by far is "junk diet", particularly sugar.
