Gelding is sweating bad in the poll area and grinding teeth constantly please help

My 21 yr old gelding is sweating badly is his poll area and grinding his teeth nonstop he is eating fine and passing stool gums are pink and he's drinking water. He is fine as far as I can see no injuries etc I'm wondering if this can be an upset stomach or colic even though he is passing stool and eating Please help!

Sounds like he's in some discomfort. I'd get a vet to check it out, sweating a lot in one area can indicate pain and tooth grinding is definitely not a good behavior nor normal for him to just begin. He could have some pain in his poll area or an issue/infection in his jaw area. Please contact your vet.

I was always told teeth grinding was a sign of pain. I even had an Arabian gelding that used to grind his teeth while being ridden and I never though much about it because I thought it was normal for him. He eventually had regular boughts of colic and one episode he didn't recover from and I had him put down. In hindsight I wonder if the teeth grinding was an early symptom. He seemed fine at the time but obviously something was wrong inside him.

They can sweat when they are in pain too (I've had colicky horses sweat). I would say something is bothering him.

Is this the laminitic one, or do you have a pair of oldies?

Congrats for having the oldies, hope he is OK, good idea to have the vet in the morning if he is still showing symptoms.
