Night Sweats

Postby OldToeSave » 14 Dec 2004, 14:31

Anyone else experience this? I wake up in the middle of the night just soaked. It doesn't matter how warm or cool the evening is either. And I only experience this in Taiwan.

What's up with dat?

night sweats

Hot flashes (or are you a man?)
It's also a symptom of AIDS.
More simply, it seems that people who grew up in a dryer environment have trouble adjusting to the higher humidity here, and so feel too hot in an environment of 20 C, and too cold at 18. (or whatever degree would feel good at home.)

Alot of times when you start to sweat for no reason, it means your
body is fighting an imminent cold or flu.

Cotton clothes and cotton sheets and a dehumidifier might help. Otherwise you're getting the cold.

Clear your conscience
Pleasant it is, when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters, to gaze from shore upon another's great tribulation

Yeah, you definitely should try sleeping without the silk sheets to see if that's the problem. Silk breaths very poorly compared to cotton, so all that heat and perspiration builds up over the several hours you're in bed.
