I used to… I was deployed with the Army to Afghanistan in 2004 and when I came home I had crazy bad nightmares and would wake up panting and sweating all the time.  Like every.single.night 🙁  I just kept a fan beside the bed, an extra throw blanket at the foot of the bed, a dry t-shirt on the nightstand, and a glass of water.  Thank goodness, these episodes have since subsided!

I’ve had them almost every night since I moved into my new house. We did buy a new duvet set, so maybe I’m just hot?

I used to before I got my panic attacks under control. It was awful.

I sweat at night –  but i’ve noticed its usually a few days before and the week of my period. I’ve gotten so frustated in the middle of the night that i wake up in a fuss and tear my clothes off. I will soak through them its so gross and so annoying! I’ll sweat under the covers but freeze if i’m out of them. There is no happy medium.

 @Lyndzo:  I had the same exact problem rigth after i got married and we moved into our new place with our new duvet! strange.

I do all the time. I think it can be a side effect of BC? I should prob ask a doctor about it someday.

I don’t but Mr Rugbee does. To combat them we keep our bedroom at a cool 15C (60F). I sleep in myown comforter so I don’t freeze to death & he sleeps with a thin blanket next to me. It’s the best solution we’ve been able to come up with.

Also, one contributors to his night sweats was the hypoalergenic matress cover we had on our bed. It was trapping moisture underneath him. Once we took it off it dealt with half of the problem.

@MrsRugbee:  Haha, we are the opposite… B is freezing and has extra blankets, I am under just the sheet and have the fan on me!  I don’t sweat as much (like when I had nightmares I’d soak the sheets & my t-shirt) but I do still get too hot when I’m sleeping.  Sometimes he wants to snuggle but I’m too hot!

i used to a lot, discussed it with my doc and she said not to worry unless there were other unusual sympotons as well. They disappeared by themselves. I think it was a phase of perhaps more stress or too hot room.

@shellzbellz: Yes, I do! It seems everytime I have a dream (nightmare or not) I wake up drenched in sweat!

I had it happen a few times last year. It was really gross and strange! Luckily not since though.
