night sweats…night chills…

Ok so this one is fairly new to me…at least for this duration of time.

Of course I’ve woken up covered in sweat before from a bad dream or what have you, but this is happening way too frequently for me to be ok with. First I blamed it on my ‘monthly gift’ but it stayed around long after she left. I don’t recall bad dreams causing the sweating so I don’t know what’s happening. It’s definitely NOT hot in our room as the window is almost always open and 2 fans are running constantly. As a matter of fact I usually shed some clothing and blankets during these sweats and then I find myself shivering from chills, parts of the body are then in pain from being ‘so cold.’

It’s been happening off and on for about 3 weeks now, so I guess I better figure out what’s causing it. I thought it too would pass but so far no luck. One more thing to add to the list for the Dr. The list grows and grows until finally you think…’there is no way I can go over all of this with someone in one sitting and not look completely insane’ so I’m sure I’ll weed some out at the last minute and save them for a future visit. But this is not only disturbing my sleep, it makes me feel like there is something happening that shouldn’t be!

Anyone out there experiencing the same or has any ideas, I’d LOVE to hear them!
