hello

Thank you for the information.

Based on your description, you seem to have this problem for a while without self-recovery. There are many diseases that can present with sweating at your age, some of them require further evaluation to reach final diagnosis. Some of the common causes are: Anxiety,meds,alcohol, GERD, diabetes, thyroid problems, infection, hormonal imbalance or malignancy. Just for your information, occasional night sweat may not be that significant, but it’s happening more frequently in your case and must be investigated. In your case, hormonal cause is very likely but must be confirmed with blood test.

In the meantime, you can do a few things to ease your symptoms such as keep yourself cool and avoid hot environment, watch what you eat and avoid the triggers, relax and do some meditation.avoid smoking, lose weight. There are many dietary supplements to manage these symptoms, you can get the one with plant estrogen, black cohosh etc.

Please leave a positive rating by clicking stars on your screen so that I can get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question, you can reply to this post.

Regards,

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.
