Night sweats, is this normal??
wrestle posted:
For the past month I have been waking up just about every night sweating really bad! I know hot flashes and night sweats are part of menopause,but is it normal to have this every night?? Please if someone could let me know,I am getting a little scared. I have a few in the morning, but then nothing the rest of the day.

Thank You

Some women only get night sweats or hot flashes; others get both. Certain meds and other medical conditions can cause these vasometer symptoms. But if your age and any other symptoms indicate you're in perimenopause or menopause then it's probably that and not some other issue. I've found that some memory foam mattresses exacerbate symptoms since they hold in body heat.
