I have had night sweats for the past 3 years, now it is almost every day. A friend told me not to use flannel sheets, so I did that, no heater, and no pajamas or shorts on me just a sheet and blanket and still I have it. Another thing is that this only happens during the winter or cold month, I wake up soaked and wet, during the summer I'm fine.

I am 66 years old. The past week or so, I have been waking up between 2 and 5 a.m. in a pool of sweat. Early this morning I got up and changed my nightgown and underwear and went back to bed. I never had night sweats when I was going through menopause. I would get the hot flashes in bed and cover up in bed, then toss off the covers, then cover up again, etc. all night long. I never did sweat at night. Here I am, 66 years old and now I experience night sweats. I can't help but wonder why this is happening now.

I have been having night sweats for weeks now, just like everyone else. I drench the bed, and feel gross when I wake up. It is a problem. I told my doctor, and he put me on a medication for anxiety to see if it would help, but it's not working. I hate this.
