Sweating buckets in the night.... am I alone?

I have had this in the past but for the last 4 nights I have woken up soaked!!! I even took my nightie off at 2 AM and this morning it was still wet!
Now I am only 37 and have had no periods in 3 months (this is being investigated by a usually slow NHS)....
I don't think it's pre-menopause as I have had this in the past but I don't recall having it so badly....

whenever i've had nightsweats it has been to do with something nasty like mastisits or a UTI that otherwise had no symptoms. are you feeling OK otherwise? i'd definitely mention it to GP.

sweetpie Thu 25-Nov-04 10:25:23

I am seeing GP next week so will mention it. I do feel fine. I don't have mastitis (not BF anymore) or do not have the flu.

sweetpie Thu 25-Nov-04 13:12:28

Saw that... thanks....

Hate to say it sweetpie, but no periods and night sweats are both symptoms of premature ovarian failure/early menopause. How do you feel during the day?

sweetpie Fri 26-Nov-04 09:36:03

Thanks Willow... I feel fine.... I have lost "more" hair too though I think that's settling down now.
I am awaiting for a gynaecology referral....
It can't be menopause, i am 37. Everyone on both sides of my family had their menopause at a normal age.... grrrr....
I didn't have any night sweat last night which was if anything quite pleasant!

Oh Sweetpie. Have been meaning to post on this thread. For the last few months I have had to change my bedding EVERY morning. My sheets and PJ's are sodden. I don't know why. Could be stress related I even had a blood test for thyroid problems a few weeks ago-which came back normal. It's horrid isn't it? If I ever do find a man I can guarantee it will be a one night stand. After he's snorkelled off in the morning he won't be back. Have you tried changing your bedding? I'm thinking I may be allergic to my goose down duvet.

Hair loss, absent periods and intolerance to heat, causing night sweats, are also the most common signs of an over-active thyroid. Ask your GP for blood tests.

sweetpie Fri 26-Nov-04 09:44:57

LOL Spook..... not at your predicament of course!
I have wondered about my bedding, I may just be too hot.
As I know my hormones are not doing the right job at the moment I am putting it down to that but I am definitely keeping an eye on other causes....
What is your cycle like ? Is it normal?

sweetpie Fri 26-Nov-04 09:45:19

My thyroid was check and is normal....

Lonelymum Fri 26-Nov-04 09:47:41

I had a few night sweats some time ago but I think it might have been when I was pregnant (can't remember). That would suggest they were hormonal, sorry. I know how horrible they are, though and wanted to say how sorry I am you are experiencing them. I do associate them with the menopause too, so I think you should definitely mention this to your GP.

sweetpie - I menopaused at 36! - but fortunately no symptons other than my periods stopped!

good luck!

spook Fri 26-Nov-04 09:55:25

My periods are to the minute Sweetpie so don't think it can be the menopause. I'm 37. I hope it's not anyway. There's life in the old dog yet for my scuba diving young stud (wherever he may be) AM definately going to change bedding I think but it's the expense really of buying a new duvet for an experiment. But can't carry on like this. The laundry bill alone has pushed up the National Grid.

KristinaM Fri 26-Nov-04 09:56:12

I had similar symptoms when my baby was a few weeks old ( the nights sweats i mean - obviously i had no periods). GP tested hormone levels as she thought it was due to breast feeding but it was my thyroid. I think they need to test TSH levels and T3 and T4.
Has your weight changed Sweetpie?

JoolsToo Fri 26-Nov-04 10:16:00

spook - I can assure you there's a LOT of life left in me yet! You don't suddenly become a decrepit old fart at menopause

Just off to do a few cartwheels (sniff)

spook Fri 26-Nov-04 10:20:21

Oh honey!! I know. As soona s I posted that thread I realised it had come out wrong. What I meant was if I ever do fall in love again I would love to have another baby. Oh God-what a thought.
Anyway my cartwheeling buddy-I honestly didn't mean how it sounded. Here-have a sweaty hug (((((((()))))))
