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.
Most alcohol is made from grain, e.g. stuff we can't have. If you must continue drinking (I recommend stopping), try 100% pure agave tequila, 100% pure potato vodka, or 100% pure grape wine. However, since your intestines have been damaged absorbtion of alcohol is different, most likely if someone who dosen't drink smelled you they would say you smell like a brewery because your sweating out the toxins in alcohol. Best just to stick with not drinking. I have worked in bars for decade and when diagnosed with celiac disease I had to quit and work in no alcohol est. because of people being friendly and buying me a shot, all it takes is one and I'm in trouble. I've been gluten-free and AF almost a year now and am much happier and enjoying a higher quality of life even though the pay in bars is better. Hope this was some help!

Well, I had an eye-opener this weekend. I realized I do not sweat nearly as much at other places. My husband and I went away for the weekend for our anniversary and I didn't sweat at all. I had noticed this too when I visited my sister, in-laws etc. Got back Sunday night to our place and sweat horribly.
Berneses: Just a thought, have you checked your apt for mold?

Anyone know what is the cause?
Could it be you were having fun with hubby (love & laughter heals a lot) and that's why you were feeling better?

I have had terrible hot flashes and night sweats for years. Drove me crazy. I work in a hospital and manage the kitchen. and do diet instructions. At times i'd just go stand in the freezer to cool off when nothing else seemed to help.
Last summer I was taking a course on medications. What shocked me was that the anti-depressant, prozac, causes terrible night sweats. The funny thing was that after being on it for a long time, I had just switched over to something else. I was actually experiencing fewer problems but didn't know why.
So, the point is, for anyone taking prozac and having sweats, GET OFF OF IT! I also couldn't sing anymore and with further reading found out that it causes the vocal chords to become dehydrated and dry so that one can't sing. Apparently, opera singers know all the drugs that cause this type of problem.
Now that I've started a gluten free diet, the last of my hot flashes seems to be going away altogether. I never knew that prozac had the side effect of heavy sweating. Wonder what other drugs do this.

I was then diagnosed with celiac disease and removed gluten from my diet. The original box I purchased was not gluten free, and GNC was more than happy to replace my old box (guess it had been on the shelf a while) with a new box that is Gluten Free.
After a week of being gluten-free the night sweats went away. There are two pills in this pack that are reported to help with hot flashes and night sweats, the Evening Primrose Oil and the Menopoise cap which contains red clover blossom, black cohosh and soy isoflavone. There is a warning on the Menopoise that sstates discontinue use two weeks prior to surgery.
Thus, I don't know if it is these vitamins or the gluten-free diet that has done the trick and at this moment, I could care less because my doctor opted to remove me from my estrogen in 2001 and I have loathed him with every hot flash and night sweat since!
All I know is that I was three weeks on the vitamins and one week on the gluten-free diet and I am hot flash and night sweat free, don't know which one to thank.

Yeah....I got crazy night sweats all the time. I would wake up totally soaked, hair, clothes, sheets, pillows...everything. It was like someone poured a bucket of water on me. It hardly happens now that I changed my diet. I don't know if I have celiac disease yet but the night sweats return the same time other symptoms return...probably when I've had gluten. 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 .
This was my post back in August. The gluten-free diet made a huge difference as far as the night sweats. I dont wake up drenched anymore or have to change clothes in the middle of the night. Howver, the night sweats havent disappeared...they are just not as severe. My thyroid and all else checks out fine....I was just diagnosed with a C. Diff infection so I think that is probably the culprit of the continuing nightsweats. My doctor told me the same thing that Thomas just posted. Nearly all people with gluten intolerance test positive for bacterial or parasitic infections that hinder the healing process.
