I'm just wondering how many people have night sweats. I have them mildly every night (only since Celiac's began). they have gotten better since going gluten-free (when I get golutened, I literally soak the bed). I'm wondering if they go away eventually or if there's a supplement I should be taking that might help. I'm only 38 and my doctor assures me it's not menopause.

Berneses,

Have you had your cholesterol checked? When my daughter was younger (30's)
she had them and got tested and found her cholesterol was elevated, she changed her diet and her numbers dropped.

The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

I used to get them so bad I had to put a plastic cover on my mattress and would wake up in a puddle of sweat an inch or more deep :blink: . Since going gluten-free I haven't had them at all except for one time I got glutened.

Yes!Before going gluten-free my hubbie used to get them terrible!
He would have to get up and change his t-shirt and put a towel on the mattress to lay on.Since going gluten-free it's only happened a couple of times,nowhere near as bad though.

A couple of years ago I got them every once in a while...But I never connected them to being Glutened!
However, looking back that was probably the reason.

Good topic Berneses!

I have them all the time. Bloodwork shows that my hormone levels are changing with perimenopause, so that is what causes mine.

Hugh, that's interesting... I've never had full-blown sweats perhaps, but I always get hot at night, while my husband is on the other side with a heated blanket. I don't get hot during the day though...its weird.

Please see your gyno, I started perimenopause at about your age and by 41 my periods had stopped. I was told it (the peri) was 'in my head', just like my IBS, fibromyalgia and incontinence. Everything has resolved in the 2 years since diagnosis and my gyno told me he sees signs my periods may start again. (at 48!) Stay gluten-free and talk to your doctor.

Thanks- that's good to know as I'm 37 and haven't had kids yet. But lately, I've noticed something interesting. I've been house sitiing for the last three weeks and they have much lighter bedding (I have a light down comforter at home but maybe it's too much- I used to be cold ALL the time before I went gluten-free) and I haven't been sweating so I think it's time to buy some new bedding and see what happens. But you're right, I should see my gynecologist because I don't want to find myself in a situation where I CAN"T have kids. What exactly did you experience during perimenpause? You can email me anytime.

Ummm, this is very interesting. I went through a bad spell of sweating during the day and night that ended about a week ago. I never put it down to gluten though. I am only 8 months off a one year taper off of a 25 year use of antidepressants and benzodiazapines, and 55 years old, so didn't know if it was benzo w/d or menopause. Who knows. But I will surely keep track of my gluten intake and watch the sweating thing. I also have horrible problems with insomnia, and have for years, and never put it down to gluten either. I live in Northern Canada, and have a terrible time finding gluten-free products, have to stick pretty much to meat and potatoes. It seems that gluten is in everything.

On the subject of withdrawing from benzos. For any of you out there who are using Ativan or any other benzo for sleep, PLEASE PLEASE, be careful. They are so very addictive, and the w/d is hell on earth. I will never touch another one as long as I live. They almost cost me my life.
