Grr, how do the night sweats know it is night? grrr

Everytime I go to bed, it's like my body knows it is night time and time to sweat. Or should I say drench. Then I cannot sleep

What are some suggestions? I am thinking of putting myself in the icebox and freezing myself before going to bed.

So far the Effisoy I am on to help the night sweats is not helping.

Thanks, sisters.

Hi! Sorry you're drenching! Been there, done that! I remember feeling like I was going out of my mind for just a few seconds, then it would ease up. I actually learned to like cool showers... total turnaround for a cold-feet gal. 3 days post-op my doc prescribed Neurontin, and it did wonders for a few weeks. Then we tried a month of Aygestin, but had to stop because of blood clots. Since then, the hot flashes have not been so bad, but they still flare up at the worst possible time. ha! There is hope -- it does get better. Hang in there!!!

I've sort of gotten used to the night sweats and don't plan on taking any HRT, but I'm probably older than you are and grew used to slight warmness at night while in perimenopause.

My three suggestions:

use all-cotton bedsheets with layers of cotton thermal blankets, so you can put on or peel off as needed.

use all-cotton nighties, if you wear a nightie, without sleeves and maybe with a V shape in the back, so that the sweat will not stick to the nightie.

on top of your cotton sheets, line up, end on end, two cotton pillow cases. when you soak them, if you feel hot and uncomfortable, remove them and get a fresh nightie on and put down a new set of cotton pillow cases lined up, end on end.

Sure, it makes for some laundry, but it can lead to better sleeping. Have always been a light sleeper with insomnia anyway (job stresses, typically), so the night sweats are just added interest.

Everyone is different, of course, and I wish you well with the issues you're facing.

I bought a small tabletop box fan and it's my new best friend. I turn it on at night and let it blow directly on my face all night long. Sounds crazy I know, but I would rather be cold than to be sweaty and hot...this coming from a gal that everybody swore had no blood because I used to run a heater on my feet in the office year round!
