Every funking night, drenching with sweat running off me. They wouldn't bother me so much if I could sleep through them but I can't. Been going on for a few years, I've seen my GP, a specialist at the hospital & they can't say why, only that I don't have TB or cancer.
How miserable nicky I get them a fair bit but then I'm 52 so it's obviously peri-menopause in my case. Do you notice them being more frequent just before or at the beginning of your period? Mine definitely coincide with the week before I come on. I don't know what to suggest though sadly and can only sympathise because they're are very wearing indeed.
Like Walnut I would say an overactive thyroid could cause this (I suffer with one). We slept on a memory foam mattress once in a holiday cottage. It was awful, really hot (this was before my overactive thyroid).
No other symptoms. My periods are normal, I gave up on the GP last time but I've got a new one so I'm going back in a couple of weeks. What other symptoms should I be aware of for thyroid or menopause?
