Does it happen to you to sweat (excessively) at night ?

This happens to me almost every night for approximately one year. I have nightmares since my childhood. I don't know if there is a link between nightmares and sweating. When I weak up sweating at night, I feel bad and stress. Some times I remember my nightmare, and other times I do not, or I remember fuzzy things.

Three month ago, I saw a slepping specialist Doctor who don't proposed me any polysomnographic test, and who adressed me to a psychologist in order to practice anxiety/depression tests. Tests show that I am anxious, and mild depressed (I don't need antidepressants at usual doses).

The slepping specialist Doctor and the psychologist gave me tips to improve my sleep (to treat insomnia). These tips don't work, and I still sweat...

Do you know any med for night sweats ?

Yes, it's not uncommon to have "night sweats" from either the doxepin - as a side effect - or from the nightmares you're experiencing.

Prazosin has been shown to help with nightmares and sleep disturbance. You may want to ask your doctor about it, particularly if you suffer from PTSD.

I have been having terrible night sweats... It truly is jacking with my sleep, and therefore my depression and quality of life.

I wake up drenched, and freezing 2/3 times per nite.... Feel horrible by morning...

I think effexor is the culprit. It's demoralizing... I need a med with NRI, but is that causing this?

Going to have 2 find something else... Cannot really keep on with this.

These past few weeks I've been having issues with this.Waking up cold wet and clammy from the shoulders down with noticable mositure retained by the blankets. I've never had them with any of the drugs I'm on. I'm thinking mine are probably related to my angry gallstones and my apartment being poorly insulated so the temperature swings wildly when the heat kicks on.

It hasn't been as bad since I've just fortified my bedroom into the nest of warmth (blankets over the windows, blankets around the door...) and just kicked the thermostat way down at night.

thanks for reply.

it is not because of meds: sweats noctunres appeared before I took them

@ razzel51 : I don't take any other meds. I'm a woman, and I excluded the hypothesis menopause, I am 29 years old, I'm not prematurely menopausing.
@ bengaltiger "I wake up drenched, and freezing 2/3 times per nite.... Feel horrible by morning..." That's exactly what happens to me.
I think it's not a problem of temperature in my apartment. Sweats appear all the time, both in my bed, on holiday, when I sleep at friends ...
I experiment night sweats for about a year, and it sucks.

Pdoc wonders if I have sleep apnea. I will probably have a sleep study in a few weeks or months, and perhaps know why I have night sweats.

I saw a new sleep phyiscian : she don't think I have sleep apnea, but I will have a sleep study in july 2012, in order to know what happends in my sleep. This new sleep physician wants I to see the psychiatrist of the sleep unit.
My pdoc address myself to the sleep physician, and the sleep physician address me to another psychiatrist...

I wouldn't write off a combination of meds + temperature. Outside temperature needs to be a chilly 5°C (41°F) or lower in order to prevent my night sweats - above that temperature the night sweating begins and increases with severity as the temperature creeps higher; at 10°C (50°F) I'm drenched. I don't use the heater in my house and keep windows open, so my home isn't much warmer than outdoors. The only time I have my night sweats consistently controlled is during the winter months. Mine is a result of my Cipralex, which when removed also ends the night sweats. I have to sleep with my head and feet exposed, with a light blanket or sheet, wearing lightweight sleepwear, and as the temperature creeps up have a fan blowing on me - all in order to keep my body temperature down at night. During the summer months I also need to keep the curtains and blinds closed to prevent the morning sun from shining on me, move from sleeping in my bedroom to sleeping in the living room with an air conditioner running, and have a fresh shirt ready to change into in the middle of the night. If you aren't already, you might try incorporating some of these changes into your sleep routine to see if they help.

Thanks dicomposed for reply.

I usually keep the windows open, but if it is too cold in the room (<15 ° C) I can not sleep.
I sweat in any season. My boyfriend sleeping next to me and he does not sweat. I don't think the temperature of the room can change anything.
I have to wait for my sleep study

Not to be an alarmist but ... night sweats can be a symptom of Hodgkins disease and some other cancers. Sometimes they aren't. Probably you've had a complete physical and ruled this out, but if you haven't, you might want to.

Blood sugar crashes can cause me to wake up in a pool of sweat. Blood sugar crashes and nightmares. Have you been checked for diabetes (type II)?

TKE: Have you had your hormone levels checked? The reason I ask is that after I had my child I sweated like that for almost a year. It was unbearable. Couldn't hurt to rule that out if you haven't.

Thank you all.

Hodgkins disease ? pdoc thought but eliminated this hypothesis
Blood sugar crashes and nightmares ? I checked my blood sugar level with a glucometer (I took it where I work) during one of my waking in a sweat and my blood sugar level was regular. Nightmares : I have nightmare almost every night. I think it's linked but not sure.
Nurse Ratched, which hormone levels should I check ?

I look forward to my sleep study. It is scheduled for July 3rd and 4th. The results are scheduled for July 19th. I hope I will know whether night sweats come from psychological or somatic problems (exploring...)

I'm not sure but your GP would surely know. It's good that you're doing much to discover the cause.
