Hi I have also been experiencing night sweats. Not really bad, just sweating at base of neck. It started happening a few days ago - is this concerning?
Hello,
Night sweats can be due to a number of causes.
Most common is a mild infection or inflammation somewhere causing this problem.
So in your case, any inflammatory condition of the intestine like Crohn's as your doctor suggests could be the cause.
Night sweats by themselves are not serious but they could be an indication of an inflammatory pathology elsewhere.

I am taking doryx for a sebaceous cyst - could that be causing it?
No, doryx or doxycycline should not cause this.
