Night sweats? Really terrified
« on: April 01, 2014, 01:56:30 PM »
So i decided to sleep early i think it was 10:30 or 11pm onwards and I woke up in the middle of the night feeling moisty on my collar shirt on my neck and slightly on my head so i panicked a little and yes it's a night sweat. But not soaking wet and not entirely on my body.

I've heard that night sweats are pretty common for those who are prolonged to anxiety and stress? And i am suffering from anxiety/stress ever since my HA started. well honestly this isn't the first time happened to me. the sweaty moist on my collar shirt on my neck, head and i also remember i also had it on behind my knees way back in 2012. good times (not!)

Since i have a biggest fear of C and this really freaks me out! Oh God! i think i don't want to go back to sleep.  :dazed:

Hi bittersweet life !

I know exactly how you feel ! I've had Night sweats on and off for about two years now . Like yourself only mild ones . I have what you describe on the back of my neck and chest when I wake up and my doc said this does not even qualify for a night sweat . I read cancer associated sweats are drenching like literally you have jumped out of a swimming pool and back into bed ! Having to change sheets your that drenched !

I honestly think your fine ! I think it's this anxiety getting the better of us !

I hope you got back to sleep and feel better soon :)

Some considerations are:

How warm the room is
How warm is your bedding and sleep clothes
Synthetic pillows can hold heat on head and neck

Sometimes dreams in which we are anxious, we can wake with some sweat.

But do you really think that night sweats can also caused by anxiety?

How old are you?  Now before you start thinking "Oh it's not MENOPAUSE!".  I started getting hot flashes and sweats 2 weeks before my period would start right after I had my daughter and it never stopped (age 29 - got that 2 weeks or a week before each period).  So if you just had a baby or just started your period or over 35 or started a new birth control...  it is very likely hormonal

Hi sunlover. I'm only 20.
Well i really don't consider it to be drenched or what they called needs to change the sheets and sleepwear. (yikes) Just a moisty sweat on my collar shirt on my neck and on my forehead. That's all

And now I'm scared to go to bed tonight... Well my anxiety is getting worse and worse so could it be?

How about birth control?  Do you use it?  If so, did you change it lately? 
Also, maybe your room is just too hot.

No i do not use birth control because I'm a dude. Well this "night sweat" isn't new to me at all. It's been random to me ever since my HA started until it progress into a uncontrollable anxiety! My anxiety has actually gone worse!

LOL!  You should have said something when I was talking about you just having a baby and menopause :)
But...  attacking it from a different perspective - prior to menopause hot flashes there is a bad "anxiety" feeling - and then the "sweating"  AND when my daughter gets really nervous she gets real hot.   So for YOU, it really COULD be plain old anxiety.
