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.

[LOLabove] 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.

AZ_Redneck 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.

Mononucleosis or Tuberculosis or A.I.D.S./H.I.V. or About three jillion other possibilities. Go see a doctor if it doesn't clear up soon.
