Night Sweats
Mar 15, 2003

I realize this is probably the incorrect catagory for this question but I cannot locate a catagory about the sweating. IS THERE any way to stop it, reduce it and or eliminate it? I wake up several times during the night soaked and loss of sleep makes me function poorly at work. Any Ideas???

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Night sweats during HIV infection can be the result of HIV infection, itself, other infections, cancers, endocrine (glandular, like the thyroid gland) problems, among a variety medical conditions.
