I began having night sweats at the same time that I developed gastrointestinal symptoms of Celiac a month ago. Sweating is a way the body gets rid of toxins, so perhaps this is a good thing, though annoying. I often need to change my undershirt once a night, but the sheets stay mostly dry, so I don't have them as bad as some here have reported.

As a side note, I was a celia baby starting at age 11 months. I was put on a carb-free diet for two years and then gradually reintroduced to normal foods. For my entire life I ate everything. Aside form some bloating when I ate a lot of hard pretzels, I never had any GI symptoms. At age 56 I began having all the symptoms again. This followed a series of very stressful events over the past two years.

Very interesting...I've been attributing my night sweats to perimenopause...sure would be nice if they'd improve after going gluten-free!

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.

I am blown away by what you wrote. I sometimes have night sweats, though not often. I am having serious itching down there, but embarrassingly have had all VD tests recently, even though I and my husband have been monogamaus for 7 1/2 years, and have had 2 kids (4 & 1 1/2). All cultures come back normal: I know I am not my "norm". I don't get it.

Never used to get night sweats until a couple years ago, when I started getting them a few days before my period would start. Then got them when I was pregnant, and the regular postpartum sweats...only thing is, my baby is 4 months old now, and it hadn't gone away. I haven't had night sweats since I went gluten free though!

After I went down with Celiac in 2005 (but was misdiagnosed as Crohn's) I had night sweats really, really bad. Five t-shirts a night and a couple of towels was the norm. After I went gluten free in 2009 the night sweats tapered off and now they are rare. Instead I have really, really bad insomnia, up 4 - 6 times a night. Will be visiting the insomnia thread soon.

I have night sweats too. Not severe, but enough to wake me up and toss off the blankets.

If you have been tested for yeast infection and STDs and are ok..apply coconut oil topically. It stops the burn and itch immediately.
It contains caprylic acid which knocks out those itchies.
I took some of the coconut oil that I use for cooking and put it in a small container which I keep in the bathroom to apply as needed. Makes a good lubricant too. ;)

I had it really bad for a few months after starting to go gluten free! I'm 21 and was 20 at the time so it's obviously not menopause, and while it's not as bad anymore more I still think I'm having some. The AC in my apartment can be really funky sometimes so it may be that but I'll keep my AC below 70 degrees at night and I'm too skinny so I'm almost always cold. I'll falls asleep covered in blankets, wake up drenched freezing and burning up at the same time, and then wake up again usually right before I have to get up once again freezing. I think now it's a combo of my body and my AC hating me at the same time, but I'm moving soon and I'll have a roommate to help me figure out if its me or our house!

This is the number two difference I notice with my daughter when she gets gluten. Sleeps way more than usual (12 plus hrs) and sweats when she naps or sleeps.

I am one of those people who always want to know WHY things happen. I have been getting night sweats when glutened. Does anyone know why we get this?

No. never had night sweats in 30 years of GFD. Night sweats is listed as a GABA deficiency physical symptom. It is a brain chemical (gamma-aminobutyric acid) which controls anxiety/panic. Also, nervious stomach, IBS, muscle tension/aches,headache, dry mouth, diarrhea, etc(42 in all).

I have sleep apnea but quit using cpap/full mask treatment. never could get use to sleeping with it. The worst two months ever. Poor sleep, It wasn't for me.

I started (Dec.17,2012 on my own) taking GABA, 750mg, 2x/day and I fall asleep faster, Feel less tense during the day, less headache (also a symptom of celiac disease), With my headache came sever eye pain w/tearing & burning. I don't believe it's allergies. I could not read, use computer or think well. The eye pain has now diminished and I function better during the day. Headeache remains but less pain.

GABA is an OTC supplement. Found mainly in the brain(also in the gut's enteric nervous system) and eyes. Suggested use; 1-3/day. "Best taken without protein." To date, I don't why? I wait 30 minutes before eating. Probably some absorption issue. Have no side effects.

Try it, might help you.
