In some cases the night sweats alcohol causes may be a minor occurrence. You have a couple glasses of beer or wine and go to sleep before you can work it out of your system. But I worry that in many cases where this occurs there is more to the story. Alcoholism is serious and often underestimated.
Some suggest the sweating is simply your body attempting to eliminate the toxins through your pores while others belief the alcohol may be causing your hypothalamus — your brain’s thermostat for your body — to feel a little drunk in its own right. Physiologically a chain reaction of events is triggered within the body after alcohol consumption. Understanding this chain of events may make you think differently about overdoing it too often.

When it comes to night sweats women tend to be at the greatest risk of experiencing them at some point in their life, if not a couple of times. Menopause is probably one of the most common causes of this condition in women, but a close second is pregnancy. During pregnancy a woman’s body goes through a wide variety of changes, many of which are triggered by hormonal fluctuations. These changes in hormone levels can cause all sorts of side effects including night sweats during pregnancy.
During pregnancy a woman needs to be more careful about treating this condition. Some of the remedies menopausal women use to treat this sweating aren’t recommended for women who are pregnant. There are some other options though. Continue reading
When you begin isolating night sweats in men over 50 from those that may occur at any other age, you may want to start by looking into the possibility of andropause. Because the medical community still hasn’t agreed on whether or not this condition really exists much less how to diagnose it, andropause still isn’t at the front of many minds as a possible cause of night sweats.
In addition, you have to face the reality of aging. Certain conditions become more likely as we age, so we have to consider our greater susceptibility to these conditions as we grow… wiser. Menopause night sweats are covered far more often, but the sweating men may endure as a result of aging also need to be considered.
Read on to learn how to isolate, identify and treat sweating while sleeping as it occurs in men with a wiser perspective. Continue reading
Delineating the difference between night sweats in men under 30 and those that occur in men of any age can be a little tricky. For this article, I tried to isolate and focus on causes most likely to be somewhat unique to the age group. I urge you to consider the whole spectrum of possibilities before making any assumptions.
As is often the case with night sweats, either in women or in men, we still have to look at common variables like medications, stress, diet and exercise as a means to deduce the source of your difficulty. But there are some other potential causes that are a bit more exclusive to this age group. While you may not be able to identify and diagnose the source right away, you still need to try to get a good night’s rest as soon as you can. Without good sleep, your problems may just snowball and make it even more difficult to isolate your symptoms in manageable manner. Continue reading
