I have never experienced Night sweats per se. However,my body does not regulate temperature at all well,and whenever I have been doing anything even slightly physical during the day I will drip sweat from my face and head!It is such a hideous thing to experience. When I get home from going shopping,or seeing the doctor,I immediately strip off my clothes and get into a comfy t-shirt and undies,and dry my face with a towel!!! I even take a hand towel in my bag with me, everywhere I go.In warmer weather (above 24) I use these towels all the time,or I would look as though I had just been swimming!! My darling specialist has managed to get me registered with the Government's Medical Heating and Cooling Scheme which pays $84 per quarter towards the electricity account.,I need to use the air conditioning during the day almost all the time apart from a few months of what we call Winter here in Nth Qld! This is far better for me though than being in a cold climate where I cannot move for pain!! I came up from Victoria in 1980 to escape the cold,and the sweating issue only began about 4 years ago. I asked if it was hormonal,and it has been checked,proving that it is not! I do not sweat at night though.But then I live alone and do not do much apart from relax after 6 p.m.
Yes I do most nights in the warmer weather. I experience hot flushes throughout the day as well. It isn't much fun.
When I returned home from hospital after having my gall bladder removed, my night sweats were worse than usual. I had to sleep with a towel underneath me or I would drench the sheets. When I saw my GP it tured out I had a very bad infection. My specialist was amazed that I had put it down to Menopause. I think I wouldn't be the first woman to make that mistake.
Yes but I also get them during the day. I stopped my hormone tabs. as I have been on them for 25yrs. I totally stopped getting hot flushes while I was on them but now back to how I was before I took them :(
