Why Do I Sweat in my Sleep?

Why Do I Sweat in my Sleep?

Sweating is a natural process that helps to regulate body temperature. It is also a way for the body to release toxins and other waste products. If the sweating is caused by heat, try to open your windows if your area is safe to do so, use AC to cool your room if you have one, and avoid heavy covering. If not successful, then your sweating may be a medical condition; hyperhidrosis.

The most common cause of excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis, which can be caused by many factors such as anxiety, stress, or hormonal changes.

Hyperhidrosis affects how you dress, how you socialize, and much of your daily life. It is generally not known to be caused by an obvious reason like heat or exercise and may disrupt your social life as well as day-to-day activities

Hyperhidrosis treatment usually helps. This starts with prescription antiperspirants. If these don’t work, you may need to try different kinds of medication and therapies. When dealing with excessive sweating, surgery may be suggested. This surgical procedure can either involve removing sweat glands or disconnecting nerves responsible for the overproduction of sweat.

Yet, there has been no medical cause found for the type of hyperhidrosis that is listed below. The main factor seems to be heredity: it might run in families.

The more rare form of hyperhidrosis is secondary hyperhidrosis. This occurs when excessive sweat production is caused by a medical condition. Secondary hyperhidrosis causes sweating all over the body and can be triggered by various diseases:


Menopause hot flashes

Thyroid problems

Low blood sugar

Some types of cancer

Heart attack
