I'm 29 and lately I've been getting night sweats a LOT. It sucks cus' after I wake up I'm freezing cold while the sweat condenses off my body. I have to get up and change and then the bed is all wet-ick!!
I never really had this before except sometimes during the winter when I wore too much to bed and had a huge blanket on me.
It's hot in Phoenix but cool in our house and i only sleep in shorts a tshirt and there's a fan blowing on me.
I don't get why I'm getting this but it is very annoying.

Parasitic infections cause night sweats. What other symptoms do you have?

general Celiac symptoms- I was tested for parasites when this whole thing began and nothing showed up. They seem to have let up quite a bit but I have an appointment with my primary tomorrow and my OB?GYN Friday (lucky me!). Beverly

I have been having the same thing since I developed the Celiac symptoms. I go through bouts where I am freezing during the day (I'm pretty sure it's when I get gluten in my system) and sweat horribly at night. last night I woke up three times to change my shirt then finally had to change the sheets. I've had my thyroid tested multiple times and it always comes back fine. It has improved since I went gluten-free but it still happens so I'm trying to see if there's a pattern to it. Lactose maybe? I don't know. I think I need to be tested for more allergies/intolerances. Hang in there and talk to your doctor- the squeaky wheel gets the grease! Best, Beverly

Since 1993 when I was "inexplicably" sick. I've obviously had celiac ever since, but only got diagnosed two years ago.

I from excessive covers to stay warm to sleeping on top of the covers and then back under several times a night.

It is wholly unrelated to whether I get gluten or not.

WOW! I think this is the most interesting post I have read so far about celiac disease. I am so surprised that this seems to be a trend with everyone. I never connected it. I started getting hot flashes about 5 years ago, and thought it was because I had gained weight after having my kids. I have them during the day mostly, but I have woken up at night recently (to go to the potty) and I felt I was burning up. Sure enough, I took my temperature, and I had a fever. I didn't feel cold like you do when you are sick and have a fever. I think my blood pressure might have been high. I suggest having it checked too if you are experiencing hot flashes. It's one of those overlooked things... that's why they call high blood pressure the slient killer. :ph34r:

I sometimes get numbness in my hands, arms and feet along with the night sweats. It sucks to wake up and have to change clothes all the time  :angry: .

So do I...

I am 48, though, and have thought that the night sweats were just part of what to expect now...

Anyone try a soy supplement yet?
I am thinking of trying Revival.



I think I am perpetually dehydrated now, too, due to the night sweats -
I wake in a pool of water - I have even put a waterproof liner under my sheets to protect my new tempurpedic mattress.


I will have to get my thyroid checked, leave the down comfortor off, and not use valium...I hardly ever use it, but I do take only 4 mg now and then for sleep...
I will have to read up on the benzos...

Thanks to all for sharing.
I purposefully avoided reading this thread before, but finally decided that I need to do something about the sweats - my boyfriend stayed over last night, and I woke in 'the pool' two times...it's not only draining on me, but disruptive for him, too...

Soy is a huge problem for me. My hair falls out in gobbs.

Soy is bad for people with Thyroid problems. It's in the legume family.
Big NO NO!

I find that since I came down with Celiac, alcohol causes me to have nightsweats. If I have just one cocktail, I sweat terribly, mostly from my neck. If I don't drink, they are very minor.

I to have night sweats, but recently they have only been from the waist down, I can't really explain it. I can be laying on the couch with a blanket with my legs exposed and the bottom of my feet are "wet" as well as my legs. this is new to me so I can't say if it is related to celiac.

I used to get nightsweats. The pattern was require plenty of bedcovers to get warm enough to sleep, then wake up in early hours of the morning extremely hot and sweating profusely. Would need to get out of bed cool down with my shirt off, then go back to bed and get some sleep.

The dissappearance of the nightsweats coincided with clearing candida out of my intestines. I posted on this subject on the related disorders forum.

I was able to get rid of the nightsweats long before I realised i was gluten intolerant and went gluten-free, so the two things are separable. However theoretically they are linked - having a gluten damaged digestive/intestinal system would make me more susceptible to candida.

Being starved of energy has meant that during the day i'm most likely to be cold. Being cold in the day has persisted for the last 10 years or so.

cheers,

Mike

i find that if i can digest a decent amount of protein then that keeps me warm better than a pure carb meal. The problem is that my system takes a long time to digest protein.

A couple of other symptoms that went away along with the dissappearance of the main candida symptoms were:

1. aversion to perfume and cigarette smoke. I still don't like cigarette smoke or the smell of strong perfume but nowhere near the intense dislike that i used to have.
2. aversion to crowds eg in a crowded shopping area.

I know no 2. sounds a bit weird, but its a definate benefit to be able to enjoy shopping with my wife - especially when I'm on holiday like today in crowded Bangkok.

cheers,

Mike

I get nightsweats from anything that turns into sugar in my system-carbs. A friend of mine who is not celiac used to get terrible nightsweats until he quit drinking coffee. Try eliminating sugar and carbs for a few days and if that does not work then try eliminating caffeine. good luck.

Hi Everybody

My sweats are just awful, they come during the day as well.  This has been going on now for about 6 weeks, and it is driving me nutso.  I went through a entire year tapering off of benzodiapines, and thought I was through the worst of it.  I went through absolute hell, thought I was going to die.  If any of you are any sort of benzo, please consider getting off by doing a very slow taper.  You will hit tolerance to it eventually, and that is a real nightmare.  That is what happened to me.  Then I HAD to start a taper.  My benzo forum tells me the sweating is quite common in post benzo tapering, but I am also wondering if it is a mixture of benzo w/drawal, gluten or maybe the horrible MENOPAUSE.  I thought I had gone through menopause, but now I am wondering if maybe I was just in perimenopause.  Took HRT for several years, and I don't remember having these horrible sweats.  I had a hysterectomny years ago, so can't use my menstual cycle as a guide to perhaps my entering into menopause.  Think I will just keep it a a bit more time and see where this takes me.  I have been very diligent in watching my gluten intake for about three weeks now, so don't really think it is gluten.  My insomnia has been a problem for me for over twenty years, and see no improvement in it at all.  I sometimes get absolutely zero sleep for days on end, and most nights I will get maybe 3 hours intermitently.

Any opinions anybody.

Deborah

I too have had insomnia for over 40 years and brain fog, bloat, etc. and when I read The Yeast Connection was sure it was candida, not celiac. Carbs and sugar not gluten is what causes all these things for me, and I could go weeks without sleep as a teen. People say you can't but I learned to go into a daydream state at night, just never fell asleep. Had no idea it was french fries and candy bars that was causing it and unless I have lots of fiber with carbs to slow the conversion to sugar I will still get nightsweats or just not fall asleep. I don't even know what it is like to deep sleep.
