Waking up sweating

Hi all,
I've for the past month or so, I've been waking up sweating, sort of enough to kind of drench the sheets.
I know its winter now and everything but I haven't changed blankets since September, and there has been nothing wrong before, no sweating whatsoever (My place does not have heating so it's definitely not attributed to the heat, and I've been sleeping without turning the AC on since mid September).

Recalling previous winters, I sometimes would also wake up sweating, but back then I attributed that to have changed from thinner to thicker warmer blankets, which I thought caused me to sweat, but seeing as I have not changed blankets this time around, I'm not sure why this is the case.

Anything that can help stop this would be greatly appreciated!

  • I feel for you! I have dealt with this sweating issue for a few years now. I am always hot! I leave the heat off in my bedroom and only sleep with a sheet and still sweat. It gets so bad some nights that I have to open the window! My husband freezes. I have been to the doctor and they can't seem to find anything wrong. I'm going to get a second opinion after the holidays. I have not always been like this and I want to know what is wrong!
