Night Sweats

does anybody know why a person would get night sweats?i sleep in a 56 degree room and i wake up soaked every night is there any medical reason that anyone knows of?

There is a good differential diagnosis for night sweats but of course without more info, nothing can be diagnosed.

The worse that it can be is cancers and leukemias/lymphomas.

A women at the right age could experience hot flashes at night during menopause (some say men can get this in andropause)

It could be idiopathic hyperhydrosis.

Various infections
Hormonal causes (hypoglycemia, hyperthyroidism, carcinoid sydromes)
Some neurological problem, on top of my head I’m thinking some kinde of autonomic dysfonction
Various meds

But I am missing many others.

Hope you still have appetite and havent lost weight…

Are you doing anything to try to boost your test? That will cause it because of the extra hormone in your body. I have been getting them pretty regular this past year since I have been back lifting and I sleep with the thermostat at 64 degrees. So if you have been trying to boost your test levels, then congrats, whatever you are doing seems to be working!

I get them when my metabolism is cranked up to full speed. Thats not scientific fact but its my best estimate. When I first started training regularly and eating to gain mass, I started getting sweats fairly regularly. Wake up soaked.

It took quite a while to work it out to eating. If I’ve been active all day and eating often and I eat late, I have a good chance of waking up with sweats.

TB

HIV.

Too much Tren.

I’ve had that problem, but it was usually after I’ve been dreaming about some other women. I wake hoping I didn’t say any names out loud. Oh yeah, Jessica Alba nobody does it like you!!!
