I just turned 50. I am male. I am having a new recent problem with with sweating in my sleep at night. My entire body gets drenched. I keep my home very comfortable 70-72 degrees. I have to get up dry off and try and go back to sleep. A little later I am drenched again. This started a few months ago but was only occasional. Now it is every night.
What should I be looking at and trying?
Hi there.
Welcome to Just Answer and thank you for the question.
I am Dr.Abid a Medical Internist and will help you out.
Sometimes drenching night sweats can be caused by a medical disorder. Infection, cancer, problems in nervous system or in body's hormone producing glands (endocrine system) can all trigger night sweats.It is advised that if night sweats occur on a regular basis,Interrupt your sleep or accompanied by a fever or other symptoms, such as unexplained weight loss than consultation from dr is good.
So please once consult your Internsit for examination and necessary test.
