Why am I always sweating at night?

I wake up and I'm drenched, but it's not because I have too many blankets. Why do I sweat so much in my sleep?

Here are some reasons people have night sweats. In women there is menopause, other causes are low blood sugar, hormonal imbalances, infections , cancers as well as medicinal causes of night sweats. The only way to confirm the cause of the night sweats is to see a physician and do a complete medical history and check-up.

It would help to know if you are male or female and how old you are my first instinct is to say it is hormonal, could you be going through menopause, another thing is the heat turned up to high in your room, maybe your partner is laying to close and it is body heat.

If you're a woman, you might be going through menopause, or at least the early phases of it. Turn the thermostat down to between 56-60 at night.

It might have something to do with what you are dreaming about. Many times you can wake up from a nightmare and not even remember you had one. Nerves can cause all kinds of odd reactions in your sleep, sweating being one of them. Some people also just get night sweats and it is not ever been established why.
