Sweats at night
Sep 3, 2010

I was diagnosed in 2007 with HIV since than never had a night sweat just this week i started getting night sweats again its been 2 times this week with my pillow soked! Should I be worried about this?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thank you for your post.

While night sweats (NS) can be an indicator of serious underlying problems, true NSs tend not to be episodic nor isolated to one anatomic region. So, in this light, I'm not sure that you really have them.

Nonetheless, it would be reasonable to bring your symptoms to the attention of your healthcare provider.

Be well, BY
