Heres the Thing.

For some reason Ive began to sweat alot in my sleep. Its been happing for about a year now. I wake up in the middle of the night having to change T-shirts and again about an hour before its time to get out of the bed. Ive been sleeping with a towel over my pillow because If I dont my pillow will me too wet to sleep on. My sheets get to wet to sleep under also. I dont keep the heat up high while Im alseep. Its usually around 65 while I sleep.

I try to get plenty of exercise, I thought it was pork so I barely eat it now. I drink more water than anything. I probably drink about 5% alc every 3 weeks. My Sleep attire is simple. A pair of boxers and a T-Shirt.

Doc Can you please explain to me why I sweating so much in my sleep http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/images/icons/icon5.gif

I'm not a doctor but mine has suggested possible thyroid problems. I say it's just the water bed set too warm. I don't sweat that much.
There are several reasons for night sweats (http://sleepdisorders.about.com/cs/sweats/a/nightsweating.htm). How much do you weigh?

Chicken soup. That's your answer. It'll fix you right up. Beyond that what ever it is, it's likely terminal.
Have a nice day! :wave:

Could be anything... thyroid problem, adrenals, sleep apnea, etc. Go see a doc in person, there's several physical and lab tests we need to do in person to determine the cause.

Don't listen to Kev. Surely there's some software package out there that will fix you up! :highfive:

Seriously, you don't seem overweight but sweating like that isn't normal. If you can afford it, maybe you should see an MD. We evidently don't have one here. :hmm:

Beware anyone who would offer you health or medical advice over the internet. See a living, breathing doctor. :thumbsup:

Just face it. You are going to die.

So are the rest of us, so don't worry about it too much. I used to have something like what you're describing. I worried about it a lot. It just went away eventually.

I think I was about 22. It was a combination of raging hormones, nicotine, caffeine, sugar, alcohol, and anxiety. But I think sugar was the biggest culprit. My heart used to race at something like 96 bpm when I was resting. That caused a lot of other strange things to happen.

Thyroid is the best answer I've read here. It can screw up a lot of things, but the nice thing is that it can be easily regulated with the right drugs.

Good luck.

I just look to see what others have experienced. Ill always see a Doc before any treatments, or doing anything to myself.


I think this is me. Sleep apnea. This is the one that most concerns us. Night sweats can also be a sign of sleep apnea. If you also suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, it might be time for a study.

I work at night. 11-7 most the week and alot of times I get called in 3-11. my schedule bounces alot.


Check this out.

Monday 11pm-7
Tuesday 11pm-7
Wedsday Ill get a call asking me to come in 7pm-3am
Thursday I need to be there at 9am-5pm
Friday Im back on 11pm-7
Sat and Sun Im Scheduled by wifey. Go to sleep when shes finished talking.

As you can see. my sleep pattern is screwd

Sleep apnea is obstructive patterns in your breathing at night. It's generally more prevalent in obese people, but can occur in thin people with craniofacial abnormalaties. If you snore heavily and wake frequently at night choking or gasping for air, feel very tired even after a long night of sleeping, or have morning headaches, that may well be your trouble. My thesis work in graduate school happened to be on obstructive sleep apnea and its anesthesia concerns/complications. :rolleyes:

I understand appealing to a large audience for advice and experience....but please see a doctor. :)

That's my favorite Springsteen CD. We used to call them albums - this one was probably never released on vinyl :musical:
