Night sweats... anyone?

I've recently been getting a lot of night sweats. I wake up absolutely dripping wet, so bad I usually change my pjs or just take them off (but then I get cold) and have had to change the sheets.

I've not really noticed anything else weird going on except for being really thirsty at the same time.

I've also been getting really bad headaches across my forehead but I am pretty sure these are stress related to work as I only get them when I have been in and had a hard day.

Any ideas anyone? Any herbal remedies?

And yes I know I should go to my GP...I'm getting there!

Oh my goodness I could have written your post. I can't seem to get comfortable at night - I'm either too warm or too cold all night. I really don't have any advice to offer, just sympathy.

I do from time to time - just wake up wringing wet for no apparent reason. It happens at such varied times (all times of the year, eating healthily vs not bothering, ill or not ill, etcetcetc) that I don't think it's down to anything specifically. Does my head in though especially if I've washed my hair before bed then have to do it again in the morning, wounder.

I doubt there is anything really wrong, unless you are having any other symptoms. I wouldn't be sure that the headaches are related. Have you been having any other hormone related symptoms? Sometimes I get the sweats when I am on my period, but it is not usually wake me up type of sweating. Drink some ice water before bed, wear thin pajamas and sleep in cotton or bamboo sheets. Or you could get a chillow, I don't know how well it would work. I don't know about any sort of herbal remedies, because it could be a hormonal thing. Any herbs that help with hormone levels may work though. A cursory search shows that black cohosh is effective for hot flashes, so it might be worth a shot.
