    Default Sleepless nights/night sweats

    Does anyone else have sleepless nights and night sweats. For the last month, I have been waking up in the middle of the night sweating and just can't get cool enough. I get up and check the thermostat and mess with it and try to go back to sleep, but I just can't. It is 3:30am and I am at my computer waiting to get tired enough where I can go back to sleep. I also have to get up and use the bathroom during this same time every night. This is driving me nuts. It would be nice to get a full nights sleep. Is it hormonal or what? Does anyone else do this? Its driving me crazy...http://www.soulcysters.net/images/smilies/tiphat.gif

    Me too, me too! I am having wicked insomnia and when I do manage to get to sleep I wake up at about 2-3 AM sweating! We have the AC turned down to 74 and both a ceiling fan and standing fan running in the bedroom, I should be freezing my buns off!

    What you just said about sleeping good until 2 to 3am and waking up sweating to death...that is me...I do the exact same thing. When I wake up at 2 or 3am I can't go back to sleep. I kept messing with the thermostat, because I was burning up and just couldn't cool off. The thermostat ended up on about 72 and it was in the 60's last night for a low. I finually went back to sleep about an hour before it was time to get up for work...argh....

    Me too, last night I had the sliding door open to let in the cool night air and the ceiling fan was on. My poor dh had a blanket on and was still cold, there I was in a t-shirt and no blanket, sweating! He finally had enough and got up and shut the door. It is right next to his side of the bed. I just can't get cooled down enough to get comfy so I can sleep well. Maybe we need separate rooms so I can have an airconditioner in my room and not freeze my dh!

    I am not as bad as all that but, when AF is here I start night sweats the week before and until AF is gone. I know it is hormonal but what do ya do? My doc told me to try Estroven or something just while AF is here. I don't do to well on Hormones I get horrible mind blowing migraines.
    I am soaking wet when I wake up and freeze with the ceiling fan when it's morning.

    Oh! My goodness, i just had this conversation this afternoon with a co-worker. I turn my thermostat down to 70 then turn the ceiling fan on High and have a stand upi fan that i turn on High!!! My DH thinks that i am going crazy, but i can't seem to get cool. I usually slepp till about 3 am then i toss and turn till the alarm starts going off at 5, but then by lunch i think i could lay down on the floor and go to sleep. This is all so crazy!!!

    I'm so glad to know that I am not alone. I wake up in the middle of the night sweating. The ends of my hair are wet along with my pillow. I also constantly check the thermostat and it measures at 73. I always sleep with the ceiling fan on high speed. I also had this discussion with a coworker this week. She advised me that I was probably starting menopause. I'm only 33. Sounds like yet another symptom of PCOS.

    Waking up in the middle night soaking wet is the worst feeling. I also look like I just got back from the gym, LOL!!! This has been going on for several months now, even when the A/C is on my DH is under the blankets and I am using ice to cool me down. If anyone has any suggestions how to improve this.....

    I tried a cool shower at night before going to bed and it seemed to help somewhat. I still woke up around 2am and was sweating, but not as bad. I keep a cool glass of water by the bed, because I wake up with very very very dry mouth and eyes. My eyes are so bad that I can't even blink them. My eye lids stick to my eyeballs. I finually got a good nights sleep. I did wake up hot, but I uncovered and went right back to sleep. It was wonderful..Now if I can only get rid of the dry eyes and mouth, extra hair, extra weight and sweet cravings, everything would be pretty good...lol..I think I am asking for too much...lol
