Ok this is driving me crazy... For about a week now I've been having pretty bad night sweats - waking up a few times a night to find myself absolutely soaked. I sleep with a fan on so it's not a case of being too hot (it happens with and without the fan on).

Anyone else have this? I'm wondering if it's the meds (Pentasa & Budesonide), if it's a Crohn's thing or of it's something completely different.

Thanks!
Current:
Dx: Crohn’s Ileitis as of 22/02/08

9mg Budesonide (one capsule 3 times per day for the next 6 weeks)

Pre 22/02/08: 2.4g Asacol (discontinued due to Crohn's Diagnosis)

Megera,

Wondering if you have any hormone issues?  Just a thought. :)

I have night sweats all the time when I get really bad. Sometimes (like last night) I go through just one shirt. Other nights it's 4 shirts. It's never a heat in the house issue because the temp is always the same. I am on methylpred, but I get the sweats when not on it too. For me it's just a matter of a bad time. I keep a stack of clean t-shirts next to my pillow so I can change easily.

YES YES AND YES!!!! It started with night sweats now, all day my body can't seem to regulate my temp. My whole body is cold and clammy yet I'm so hot and sweating! I don't get, apparently my doc doesn't either. Sometimes half my body is literally freezing and the other half is sweating, it wakes me up in the morning around 4, which is apparently when my Ambien wears off. The only thing that helps, and it took awhile to discover this, and I don't understand the correlation, is after my pain meds kick in. I don't know if it shuts off some sensors or what in my body, all I know is that is the only thing that helps. I don't know what causes it, although I'm on Pentasa and Entocort as well.
Pentasa-tapering 1000mg/2x 1/08; Entocort 3mg/3x daily down to 1x 2/08; Percocet/Ultram for pain; Prilosec 30mg; Xanax-ANXIETY; Cymbalta 60mg
Neurontin-tapering, 300mg 1x/day
Probiotic
Ferrous Sulfate 325mg/daily for anemia
Azathioprine 150mg
Currently on a Low-residue diet as of 11/26

I'm so tired, when will this get better?

They are driving me crazy too.  Here's my theory:  I only have them when I'm in a flare.  I usually bleed when I flare.  I think that my colon leaks into my blood system, thereby enabling toxins (or crap!) to travel throughout my body, which explains the joint/muscle pain at times, and the night sweats are my body's way of cleaning out those toxins.  It has to be Crohn's related, because it only happens when I'm flaring and if I bled alot that day, I'm drenched at night.  I have to change pajamas 2 or 3 times and I also lay a towel down to sleep on, which also gets wet.  Does this make any sense to anyone?  I only take LDN, no meds for Crohn's.

Night sweats are a common symptom of a flare according to my GI. I used to soak my bed until my meds finally kicked in. But I still get the sweats when I flare up. It drives me nuts to have to change my pjs and sheets in the middle of the night!

They seem to be common with all AI diseases, I seem to have low grade fevers during the day and then wake up drenched in sweat when the fever breaks.

Hmmm interesting...

I've been on the Pentasa since Feb 22nd and the Budesonide since Feb 29th. I'm probably still in a flare but it's not as bad as the one I had in December.

I haven't had my hormone levels checked but I'll ask at my next appointment... I don't see the GI doctor for a few more weeks and I don't really want to go to a random doctor right now incase they decide to mess around with things.

I had night sweats when i was on Entocort(Budesonide). Shortly after i stopped taking the medication the sweats went away. I noticed a few of you are on that as well and i think it can be a side effect from the med. I also had bad leg pain lower leg felt like charlie horses(sp)
