Breaking out in a sweat ?

I was in the supermarket at noon when i began to break out in a sweat, it might have been warm but not hot. I felt like my whole body was getting wet - well at least my head and my back. I felt strange is the best I can say , weakness in my arms and I just felt weird, almost to a panic that I wanted the lady to hurry so that I could go.

by the time I got to my car I began to feel better , and the sweating feeling left .. is this anything serious ? What could have caused it ?

it could be either menopause or thyroid dysfunction they have similar symptoms & both will cause hot flushes

It also could have been anxiety or a panic attack.

It does sound more like a panic attack. They come on for no reason whatsoever and most of the feelings that you described happens with panic attacks. Any other symptoms like ears ringing, or dizziness? Chest pain or hard to breathe?
