Sweating while you sleep can be uncomfortable, causing you to lose sleep and wake up with a wet shirt. We always recommended seeing a doctor to get to the cause of it, but there are some things you can rule out. In this article, we will be going through some reasons you may experience night sweats, and what you can do to stop them.
One of the simplest reasons you may be sweating overnight is due to the temperature of your room. Try to drop the temperature by one to two degrees. Also make sure your clothes, sheets and mattress are all breathable. If you already find yourself struggling to fall asleep due to being hot, this is most likely the cause of night sweats.
While it may seem like an uncorrelated thing, your diet can have an effect! Eating spicy food two hours or less before bed can cause heat in your sleep. Spicy foods can cause acid reflux, which leads to that hot feeling you get when you eat it.
Consider also any medications you are taking which have this symptom. Always talk to your doctor to ensure you are getting the best sleep possible.
