Posted by @jimbo07, Dec 8, 2011

I have been waking up around 4 am with night sweats. My t shirt is soaked around the neck and shoulders. Why??

Hi Jimbo07,
It sounds like you should see a doctor. Night sweats can be a sign of several health issues or you may just have your heat up too high. If I were you, I would get a comprehensive physical exam.
Take care

Hi Jimbo07.
I’ve had nights sweats also, off and on for 15 years. I was recently diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia, myelofibrosis. Upon checking, night sweats is one of the symptoms of this leukemia. Hope this is not the case with you, but yes, by all means get a comprehensive physical. Good luck.

I had night sweats off and on for years. I found out that peanuts were causing my problem. Now I rarely have the problem (except when I eat peanuts).

You should certainly see a doctor. I had night sweats and it turned out to be Hodgkin s lymphoma.
