In brief: Yes

It is typical of an imbalance in the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. By far the commonest cause is the nature of diet, particularly sugar in all its different forms.
Sweating like this is typical of dysautonomia. Go to my blog entitled "oxygen, the spark of life" it explains why dysautonomia is so common.
