I don't know if this is the right area to post or not....


OK, so waking up in the middle of the night drenched
in sweat is, WEIRD.

Is this a menopause issue? This only happens once in a while.

Suggestions for those of you who have/are going through this???

Yuck!

Hi Danita,
It is a menopause issue, but can be caused by certain illnesses as well. Even people going through chemo can get night sweats.

I only have a mild case and get wet around my chest area, then I wake up cold and uncomfortable. I had (and sold) an online store that sold wicking sleepwear, and it really works. The sleepwear is made of a fabric that wicks the moisture away from your body and it evaporates, keeping you dry so you can sleep.

If you only have the sweats occasionally, you'd have to wear the jammies all the time just in case. I know there's another BWS member that sells these jammies - here's a link to her store:

If you decide to purchase some, keep in mind that you don't want a skimpy set. You need to buy sleepwear that touches the parts of your body that sweat, so they can do their job. There are also sheets available as well; they are very expensive but are cool and crisp and really work wonders.

Good luck!!

I experience this when I'm off the pill and I don't like it either. I purchased the sleepwear from Kathy and it works.

I hate to say it Danita, but I hope you don't begin getting them during the day because some women sure do.

I get night sweats every now and then, usually preceeded by "deep chills." Physicians have told me "it's part of the process." Sometimes I think the medical establishment doesn't worry too much about people beyond a certain age, unless there is money to be made.

In any case, when the night sweats DO hit me, I change into a cotton nightie and remove most of the blanketing. (I always have to have a least a sheet on me.)

Night sweats and...day sweats. Not at all funny in the summertime.

Thanks everyone. It is just one of those "new" odd things...and it's good to hear...I'm "normal" and it's part of the process.

I don't know about:

a. being a woman
b. getting older...

But I guess both of those beat the alternatives! LOL

Have an awesome week end!

danita

I am convinced that if you are freezing your tush off most of the time, these problems are less severe......what have y'all experienced about this?


I'll trade with you, Anne. My son tells me I keep my home like an icebox. (71 degrees year round)

I'd much rather feel cool than hot. Heat makes me instantly dizzy and I just want to sit with the AC on, all the paddle fans blowing, and an additional stand-up fan aimed directly at me from nearby. It's a wonder I don't blow nasal ice cycles into a hankie. hahaha

I totally agree about the cost of utilities. To keep my 2300 sq ft rancher house heated by gas, the cost is about $300-400 per month in the winter. To keep the house cool during summer months, the AC cost can go as high as $800 per month here in the Northeast.

I wish we could capture the "hot flash" resource and harness it for winter home heating........

PS: Son is age 32, runs a LOT, is an exercise nut, and would love it if global warming was an annual everyday 90 degrees in the shade. (I'd be dead from heat stroke)

Josie, my power bills fluctuated so much from winter, about $50.00 a month to summer rising to between $400.00 and $800.00 a month. I went on the scheduled plan and pay $166.96 a month, every month, and so never feel it like I use to when paying monthly the seperate costs. Ask your power company to put you on a plan if you like the numbers they figure for you.

I have night sweats, now and again. It's normal. And I agree with
Anne. Decide what age you like, then be that age!
