How To Deal With Night Sweats?

We all need a good night's sleep, yet it may not be easy to come by for some of us. Many people suffer from night sweats and wake up hot, wet, and uncomfortable. Thankfully, you can take steps to sleep cool and ensure you get the best possible rest.

Night Sweats can be incredibly disruptive to an individual's sleep and cause restfulness issues. It is described as episodes of heavy sweating during sleep, soaking through clothing and bedding, making sleep uncomfortable and often necessitating a change of clothing or sheets. The intensity of night sweats can vary from mild to extreme, but regardless of the degree, it can be extremely irritating and difficult to manage.

The Cause of Night Sweats

Night sweats are usually caused by either a medical condition or lifestyle choices such as drinking too much alcohol or eating spicy foods before bed. Medical conditions that could potentially lead to night sweats include infections such as tuberculosis or HIV/AIDS, cancer, thyroid problems, low blood sugar/diabetes, heart attack or stroke, and menopause in women. Other causes may include anxiety disorders, certain medications (including some used to treat depression), and hormone changes due to puberty in teens or pregnancy in women.

The list of medical conditions that have been associated as causes of night sweats:

  • Depression
  • Heart disease
  • Overactive thyroid
  • Obesity
  • Menopause
  • Endocarditis, tuberculosis, and other infections
  • Hyperhidrosis
  • Sleep disorders, including obstructive sleep apnea
  • Some autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis
  • Certain cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, and prostate

It is important for individuals who experience night sweats regularly to speak with their doctor about potential causes and treatments.

How to Deal with Night Sweats?

Treatments may include lifestyle changes such as avoiding spicy foods before bedtime, a cooldown period after strenuous workouts, or abstaining from alcohol before sleep. You might try wearing lightweight clothing when sleeping, using breathable bedding materials like cotton, and keeping your room cool. Additionally, over-the-counter treatments, such as natural supplements and herbal remedies, can help reduce night sweats and make sleeping more comfortable.

There are also behavior-based ways to avoid night sweats potentially. Do you share a mattress? You may enjoy the companionship of a partner, child, or pet, but you and the mattress might heat up to uncomfortable levels. If this is how it has to be, try using appropriate bedding materials such as a Nature's Embrace Organic Latex Mattress and breathable sheets. This can help reduce the amount of excess heat generated and provide some relief from night sweats.
