Comment from: johnson88, 19-24 Female Published: February 01

I am a 21 year old female and I have night sweats. This just recently started about 2 months ago. I don't know what the cause is even when my bedroom is cool my husband wakes me up and he is like why are the sheets so wet and why is you pillow soaking wet. I wake up every night sweating like I have just run a marathon. My hair is naturally straight but when I wake up in the middle of the night from sweating it is extremely curly and soaking wet. My pillow is drenched and my sheets are drenched. I do a lot of tossing and turning and that is not like me. I don't know if I should go see a doctor because this is something I have never experienced and I am kind of worried.
