What’s Your Body Trying to Tell You?
Most Likely CausesHormonal fluctuations can alter the body's internal thermostat, making you sweat as you sleep. A thyroid disorder can also cause night sweats.
Less Likely CausesSome drugs, including antidepressants, have this side effect. Certain diseases, such as cancer, lupus, and a major infection (like tuberculosis), can also leave you dripping at night.
What to do:
- Lower the temperature in your bedroom at night by opening a window or using a fan.
- Moisture-wicking sleepwear and sheets (in a microfiber material) can make a sweaty episode more tolerable.
- If the sweats don't abate or aren't linked to your menstrual cycle, talk to your doctor to rule out an illness.
- If the problem is hormonal, hormone therapy or a low-dose oral contraceptive might help.
