Do night sweats disrupt your sleep? Sweating at night isn't really a sleep disorder, but there's no doubt that waking up with nightclothes and bedding soaked with perspiration does disturb your nighttime slumber. One cause of night sweats or nocturnal hydrosis is menopause. Of course, if you are a man, this doesn't apply. And, believe it or not, it doesn't necessarily apply if you are a woman, either. There are many causes of night sweats. Even eating spicy food or drinking a hot beverage before bedtime can bring on a night sweat. Heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux disease is another possible cause. So is a bedroom that's too hot or sleeping under too many blankets. Other Causes of Night Sweats As we are dealing with sleep disorders, it should be noted that one cause of night sweats is obstructive sleep apnea.

My goal with my first few posts
on this site is to go through the major symptoms of menopause and discuss
strategies for coping with each one, strategies that I've used or that others
have used effectively. Since my last post, I've heard from others about
something I said earlier that can be amended in the most positive way!
Hot flashes and night sweats are
often the MOST uncomfortable part of menopause. I suggested investing in
yourself a little bit by reviewing what you sleep in and your bed linens,
getting away from sticky polyester and opting for cool, comfortable cotton. But
I've found something better! American business ingenuity is really amazing, and
a bunch of companies have figured out that a huge market exists among women who
are in peri-menopause (sort of like pre-menopause) and in full-blown menopause.
They've adapted a technology that's been popular in the active outdoor arena
for many years: moisture-wicking apparel. These companies are marketing
sleepwear and un...
