nurses, doctors...waking up in sweat? Mandy Schlatterer Due March 27 (girl); 2 kids; New Port Richey, Florida 1711 posts

My husband often wakes up in a big pile of sweat...the sheets wet, covered in wetness...



He's just your average guy, no known health issues...



Any ideas of why? It worries me. Doesn't worry him..

I do this all the time. It's from nightmares for me.

Dudes do tend to be a hell of a lot sweatier than women. If he is in good health, I'd just assume he's a sweaty dude. However, you're not going to find many doctors/nurses on a website like this....if you feel it warrants a doctor's attention, talk to a doctor, not a group of moms.

Honestly there's a bunch of factors missing to figure out what's going on. He could be sick, it could be the matteress, it could be normal, it could be diabetes, it could be a ton of things. :/

I would think so also. I've just seen so many RN's on here before. Never any doctors though..

And RN's, as incredible as they are (seriously...hats off to nurses. They are pretty much awesome.), they do not make diagnosises. They help to provide treatments that a doctor perscribes, and they can recognize a lot of important factors, but just telling us your husband is a sweaty dude, really isn't going to tell anyone much - even if someone here WAS a doctor, all they coudl tell you is that his sweat glands function well.

Also without knowing his medical history or family history ifs hard to even narrow down possibilities. If it keeps happening and you're concerned, push for him to see a doctor. Night sweats could be related to a lot of things.

I have my msn and am working towards my dnp and I am able to see patients alone and suggest test that need to be done, but to do so I have to be under a doctor that I work with closely.



Back to the OP, odds are he is fine and it can be from nightmares, room temp or he is just a sweaty guy.



A lot of conditions have have night sweats as a side effect are pretty serious, the only one that is likely is sleep apena and you would hear gasps and he would be excessively tired. If you believe he has sleep apena go see your family doctor and ask for a sleep study.
