Night sweats are one of the most common symptoms of menopause, and can be very uncomfortable.
What Causes Night Sweats and Chills?
The cause of most menopausal symptoms is fluctuating hormones, specifically estrogen. When estrogen levels start fluctuating, it affects the hypothalamus which regulates body temperature, causing it to misread the actual temperature and leads to episodes of profuse sweating as it tries to cool the body for no real reason.
What contributes to night sweats?
There are various factors that can increase the chances and severity of night sweats. These include:
- Too many blankets
- Sleeping next to your partner
- High room temperature
- Warm weather
- Visiting the sauna
- Spicy foods
- Alcoholic drinks
- Diet pills and other medication
