- DX FIBRO
Hi there, and welcome! -I wake up drenched in sweat my shirt and hair soaked. I’ve had fibromyalgia since 2015 though but this symptom is new like about 2 months or so.
Anything new, but definitely this, is something to get checked! e.g. bloods / hormones, endocrinologist, not "put down to fibro".
Other things might be air, synthetics, alcohol, spices, sports, stress, meds, low blood sugar, GERD, low sugar, apnea, infections,...
As my sleep is usually interrupted I regularly adjust my duvets and clothing, air the room, if that's in time.
If not, a quick 1' shower, warm, alternate or preferably cold does the trick as I can't sleep even if slightly overheated.
Overheating usually happens to me roughly in the middle of the night (maybe not earlier because I need to cold shower before sleep, if possible). At night, especially towards the morning it's actually normal to get colder and that improves sleep.
(4-5 pairs of socks for Raynaud's and praps a hot water bottle are independently necessary).
