its EPM, its a parasitic like disease that effect the central nervous system, specifically the spine. The drugs to treat that arent cheep! I cant believe a vet would suggest that on a whim. I doubt the medication would effect sweating.
I think you mean Hock- her hock is sore, its like the knee for the back leg. I would talk to the vet see if she/he thought it was just muscular or arthritic.
If you horse is ONLY sweating there she could have anhydrosis. But if she just sweats in that spot, then later starts sweating elsewere its something different, and im not really sure about what that could be.
