In brief: Sweating

It's more common w/ hyperthyroidism.
Do you take antidepressants? They can cause it. Check thyroid levels, and TSH . You may be running a little hyper on replacement t4.

In brief: Probably not

Excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis) is not usually caused by low thyroid.
On the other end of the spectrum, hyperthyroidism can cause sweating and heat intolerance.
