Thanks for staying online.

I am posting my answer below-

These symptoms, can occur with different causes, Possible reasons are-
-High thyroid hormone levels,
-Anxiety & tension states,
-Chronic infection,
-Autonomic nerve disorders.
-Diabetes,
-Heart conditions.

He would need tests which include blood tests, imaging studies (such as X-rays or CT scans), and further specialized tests accordingly.
Once cause is evaluated, then he will be advised treatment accordingly.
It would be a good idea to consult endocrinologist as hormonal imbalance is one of the most common cause of night sweats.

All the Best!!

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
