I'm talking about night sweats.. What did you think I was talking about?

Anyone experience these? I hear it's a hormonal problem or the guy is going through "male menopause"

What have you heard?

Night sweats are usually the result of a fever.  Allergies can bring them on too.  So can drugs that don't agree with your body.

I used to be able to take OTC cough medicines with dextromethorphan.  Since I was about 40 the stuff makes me hallucinate that an army of midgets is trying to tunnel under my house and kill me.

That's NOT a hallucination! They just haven't broke through yet!

Be afraid. Be VERY afraid.

All of the above, plus you do suffer from hormonal changes including a reduction in your metabolic rate.  As to the other problem that you seem too hard to be denying (methinks he dost protest too much) that is just a serious case of not enough of the real thing.

In my case, the sweating at night happens only when the wife is keeping me [s] up [/s] awake.

Not to scare you senseless, but one of the signs of my cancer (non-hodgkins lymphoma) is becoming active, is night sweats.

There are of course lots of reason's for nightsweats, but if it persist's I would definetly go to the Doctor.

Too much masturbation also causes night sweats.  Or so I have been told.

Maybe you did something pretty dam horrible and your mind has blocked it out but when you sleep you cant stop thinking about it?

Have a wife that has vanished or a dog?


I get this weird thing where I feel like I am falling and will jump out of bed onto the floor.
It's pretty freaky because I have scared the poo out of some people doing it.


I will just be sleeping and will wake up right when I am flinging myself up and wont be able to stop or move my arms tell I fall back into bed or hit the ground.

I am really not sure what this is about I do it more often when I sleep out of my own bed.

Nah, I get them too.  It's not a fever.  Not drugs.  Could be allergies, but I've never had them before

I had night sweats once.  My doctor said it was either stress or lymphoma.  Since I was going through a divorce at the time he figured it was stress.  Anyway, after I got over that piece of shit old whore leaving me the night sweats disappeared.
