Help Me Sleep.... P-L-E-A-S-E

Okay, ladies, I'm in desperate need of some help! About three years ago I started having night sweats. Nothing too bad really. It only happened once in a while really. I wasn't too concerned and just lived with it.

Now, however, things are different. They have gradually increased in frequency. Now it's to the point where it happens more times a week than it doesn't. I wake up in the middle of the night absolutely drenched. I have to change my PJ's, go get a towel to sleep on and then try to get back to sleep. Meanwhile, I'm freezing to death. Crazy, huh?

I've had my thyroid checked and it was fine. My OB/GYN also confirmed that I'm not going through peri (pre) menopause. So, what's the deal?! What in the world can I do to stop this?

I sleep in a very light shirt and under a sheet and blanket. That's it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)

P.S. - Just for reference, I'm only 37!

    Maybe you should think about not getting so dressed up for bed.
    Guess Who!

  2. Well, what in the world is my brother doing reading this blog?? Thanks for the advice Rodney Allen!

  3. Hmmm, I have no idea, I know that is a lot of help but I didn't want to not comment at all. Hope you find something!


Yippee! I love it when you leave me comments. Thanks a bunch. :)
