Are your night sweats caused by hormones or something else?
It’s just not being able to regulate my body temp I think. My hormone levels are fine so not menopausal yet and thyroid is fine. Everything comes back normal so doc is chalking it up to POTS.
I'm sick of night sweats too. I'm 40 but have had them for what seems like years. Don't get it
Me too. I’ve had them as long as I’ve had my POTS. Just seems to be getting worse.
Me too. Seems I have had pots most of my life
Me too! My husband is amazed at how I freeze all day but become a human furnace at night.
Lenita I’m exactly the same way
He’s woken me up in the middle of the night before to make sure I’m ok, because I’m so hot he thinks I’m going to fry my brain, have a heart attack, or something. And I’m basically an ice cube before I fall asleep.
I have a little fan clipped to my headboard that blows directly on my face! This is in addition to my ceiling fan and floor fan - but it makes a tremendous difference for whatever reason.
I keep my bedroom like a meat locker: 52 degrees & run a fan. I also have an electric blanket on my bed to warm up if I get bad chills. Heat is not my friend.
Soma sells “cool & dry” sleepwear that’s intended for menopausal women to combat night sweats, of course I’m 24 and have been experiencing them since I was 13 so that’s not the case for me, but they help wick away sweat and I don’t have to change pjs as often when I sleep in them. Otherwise I’ll change my pajamas 2-4 times in the night to avoid soaking through to my sheets and mattress.
Not a solution by any means, but it helps some
Do you have MCAS? I have it and use to have night sweats. But once I started h1/h2 antihistamines I stopped having them. Our bodies can release a bunch of histamine at night.
