    Hi i was just wondering if anyone else out there has experienced night sweats. i seem to get this even if i lay down during the day. i dont get it all the time, but every once in awhile. especially if i dont get to nap one day the next day im so tired i sleep all day and ache so bad. i was wondering if this could be from the DD or mabey my meds. i hope this doesnt sound stupid i was just curiouse. thanks kris

    Yes, night sweats are a part of FM. I have been having them now for 16 years. They are not as bad as they used to be, but I do still get them.

    I will wake at night sweating, also if I take a nap in the daytime too.

    They will also start if I am excited or stressed about something.

    Mine have let up somewhat from taking magnesium and drinking water, and also taking 1/4 teaspoon of Sea Salt a day.

    I believe I read about this with the FM in Devin Starlanyl's books on FM.

    I read so many books on FM, I forget where I read what these days.....

    Shalom, Shirl

    Hi. I don't know how old you are, but what about getting your hormone levels tested? You might be in perimenopause and night sweats are common. Just an idea.....
