Hot Sweats at night

Postby stephanini » Sat Jul 17, 2010 7:45 pm

hello...

ive noticed a few people mention hot sweats, and just wondered if this is linked to FM or other problems that are related...

i will often wake in the night with literally soaking wet pajamas, and a "river" running down my back/chest...it just seems like water rather than sweat (e.g. smelly (sorry tmi))...i will sometime feel hot with it, but other times i will just feel at a normal temperature if you know what i mean

its quite embarrassing wen my hubby comes to cuddle me and he feels like hes been dipped in the bath!! :nono:

Hi Steph it can be linked to a number of things, FM, meds and the dreaded change. Never had it when feeling at a normal temp though :shock: I normally feel like my internal thermostat is broken and I'm getting hotter and hotter. As we always say though if its something new mention it to your doc just to make sure. :hugs:

hopefully its not the change as im only 24...

its been happening for a few months now (so not as long as the rest of my symptoms)...i have just had kidney failure, so it could be related to that..just wanted to see if it was a common symptom with FM...ill mention it to my GP next time i see her

thanks x

It is common to have issues with temperature control (and therefore sweats and chills) with Fibro - the Autonomic Nervous System, which is affected in Fibro, controls things we don't think about, such as temperature control and blood pressure.

It's possible you're getting episodes of low blood pressure that are causing the dizziness and throbbing sensation - sometimes your body will try to compensate for low blood pressure by increasing your pulse rate.
