Default Night Sweats

Do any of you go through this? I have googled it. It does not seem to be a feature of PCOS, but some women with PCOS complain about night sweats. I know it is a sign of many diseases, including diabetes. My doctor cannot figure out why I suffer from night sweats. I have been having them for almost 3 years now. I was just wondering if any other cysters go through unexplained night sweats? If so, what do you do about it?

My fiance is always complaining about how cold our bedroom is (65 degrees) and I still manage to sweat through my clothes at times!!!

I have this problem too! I've always just assumed that it was because I overheat easily, but I've never mentioned it to a doc. I talked to my Mom about it not long ago (she's a nurse), and she said it's probably nothing to worry about. For me, it's really just my legs that sweat, and it's happened for years.

I don't really worry about it, because I know how close I am to being diabetic, and it's probably attributable to insulin resistance. If you don't have IR, I'd bring it up next time you see your doctor.

I have brought it up to my doctors. They do an A1C on me, fasting labs and I have had several glucose tolerance screens done. All show up normal. Last doctor checked me for insulin resistance and didn't detect anything. So, supposedly, I am not Insulin Resistant (although I do think I have a mild form of it that is not showing up in my labs). After they determined I was not a diabetic, they just told me to use less covers! <----doesn't that sound well thought out and educated!!! hahaha

My dad says since everyone in his family has diabetes, I will get it too. He says this is just a sign that I will develop diabetes!

My doctor told me that the night sweats were a result of being "moist" internally because of the thick walls of blood that are covering my uterus. I think that a lot of people with PCOS have the thick lining as well.. which makes your body "moist". I do use less covers and I do use the air conditioner often!

Beauty1216 --- I hate to say this about someone you care about, but your dad is full of crap on this one. I asked my mom, who was a nurse for about 30 years, and she says that this does NOT mean you will be diabetic. It just means that you're at higher risk for it than most people are.

I don't know about the "moist" thing... I've never heard of that before. I think it's more likely that it has something to do with higher core body temp. Or some people just have them. In my case, it's probably just because I got hot easily. Honestly, using fewer blankets may be the best option. It sounds silly, but it could be true. There are a lot of things that COULD cause night sweats, but you might just be getting too hot at night.
