Night Sweats Symptoms
Excess sweating that occurs at night may drench sheets and bedclothes when severe. As mentioned previously, sometimes the sensation of flushing (a warmth and redness of the face or trunk) may be hard to distinguish from true night sweats or may accompany night sweats. Depending upon the underlying cause of the night sweats, other symptoms may occur in association with the sweating. For example, with certain infections and cancers, fever and chills are associated with the night sweats.
