Night sweats can be caused by an infection, showing signs of fever and cough. However, if the sweats are not caused by some bacterial or viral infection, it may be caused by tuberculosis, nocturnal hypoglycemia (which can lead to Diabetes), thyroid conditions, possible pre-cancerous or malignant complications. Bloodwork should be able to diagnose the condition that is causing this.
