Not due to hormones. I do get hot in bed, but mainly in the summer when it is warm overnight and humid.
Yes I get them every night - HORRIBLE -have had them for some 20 odd years now, but at least I dont often get flushes during the day (or flashes as Americans say!).

It is a ghastly thing and something that I think is limited to women?

Waking up when it is 4° and having to strip everything as I am so hot, and then five minutes later, back to normal and cold!

Oh Finy,this sounds utterly horrific, totally ghastly, and every other description imaginable! Can the doctors do nothing at all to help you?

nah - i dont think they know why some people have this! My doctor finds me amusing!!!

I get them too Finy. I was hoping they would end soon, it's been 5 years. 20 years is unfair! Poor you.

Only if I am too covered up.

Actually no I havent.
Only if I have my electric blanket on too high.

I do wake-up if I've got too hot from doona, though!
No. I sleep under two doonas in winter and one in summer. I am always cold so I couldn't imagine night sweats.

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 :(
