Why is DS so hot at night?

My DS is 13. He has developed this issue where, as soon as he goes to bed, he gets excessively hot.

Sometimes he has a big window open and a fan on yet he’s still too hot. It’s not his room as he slept in DDs room for a few nights and the same thing happened.

He isn’t trying to pull the wool over our eyes, I have sat with him and it’s like he’s got a fever but his temperature is normal.

It’s starting to be problematic as he doesn’t fall asleep until 11.30 so he’s knackered for school.

Is this a hormonal thing? Should I get him checked out?

Could it just be a development of puberty? My DH is constantly too hot so now we have a young baby and need a warm room he's actually sleeping in the spare room in just boxers with a fan on. I'd freeze like that! He's quite a big guy, hairy (might matter for insulation??) And generally just runs hotter. DSS is the same. Could he sleep under just a sheet rather than a duvet? Might be worth seeing the GP just in case.

Thanks Blackcat

He sleeps in boxers with no cover at all. I think it might be a puberty thing.

My 13yo does this. I assume it's puberty. He seems well and comfortable. I'm not worried.

How long ago did this problem start?

Good point Yumsy DS is otherwise well.

lljkk I guess since the spring but much of the summer was so hot anyway it didn’t seem that unusual.
