    I get nite sweats all the time! I always feel as though I have a fever as well but my temp is generally below normal.
    I have read on here for years that many people have this problem.
    My gyno doc put me back on a low dose of hormone pills for night sweats, thinking this might help, I had a hysterectomy at a young age and was on them for years. I was taken off of them about three years ago and he thought this would help. Nope it does not, It happens most of the time prior to a flare though.
    That's about all I know for now, hope you can find an answer to help, if so let me know.

    Love to you,

    I get them as well. I had a hysterectomy 4 years a go and didn't have a problem with them. But ever since I've been in this never ending flare I have had them. I also get them in the morning after I get up.

    I take 1 mg. of estradiol which may help a little but not much becuase I don't think that it is hormonal in nature.

    I'm 45 y.o. and have had night sweats for several years now, on and off. And my gyno says that when it started it was because I was premenopausal and now is because perimenopausal. So, I'm not sure exactly what it is... what I do know though is that I do get so hot sometimes I feel like I'm burning and even the bed feels hot. My solution is I get up and take a cold shower and it helps for a few minutes.

    If anyone ever gets an answer I'd like to know. thanks

    I get terrible night sweats....I think part of it is my age but is it a symptom of fibromyalgia also? I didn't know that. I sleep with a fan on me even in the winter..if it is chilly I just don't aim it directly onto me and just make sure I have the circulation of air in the bedroom and that helps a lot with the night sweats.

    I also experience extreme itching when I sleep. Many nights I just get up and have to slather myself in lotion to get relief and I put vaseline on my hands and feet. It feels icky and horrible but it soon soaks in and feels wonderful.

    terribly like I just got out of the shower. But I also get a rash on my right wrist certain times of the year it seems, around 1 or 2 in the a.m. and it gets so itchy . I can't even say it's a rash it's only a couple of red 'dots". My doctor laughed at me but I've had it about 4 or 5 times , same time of year only on my right wrist. It seems like it happens when the seasons change. I had it a few weeks ago but this time for the first time it was on my left wrist.

    It really is strange for me. Sometimes I get night sweats and sometimes I do not.

    I can not figure it out, but may have to ask the doctor.

    i am 34 yrs. old. i have had night sweats for years now but my gyno dr. said it was due to my depression medicine. i got off it and still have them. so bad at times, my husband wakes me thinking that i have wet the bed!!! i had no clue this was a symptom of F.M.!!! so that's where they are coming from. thanks for the info.
