Hi all,  I have recently been the one that replies to most threads but this time I have a question for you.
For the past several years, I have been getting bad night sweats.
I've never given it much thought but now I wonder if it's a medical problem.
The bedroom has AC and it is not unusually warm in there.
 
I recently had a physical exam and forgot to mention about the night sweats ~ every night.
I wake up in the morning and the sheets are soaked.  My blood pressure is fine, blood/sugar is normal, cholestoral is normal etc, but my question is: Does anybody else out there suffer with night sweats on a regular basis?  Can you relate this to epilepsy or the meds?
 
I'd love to hear your feedback on this.

MandiAnn,

Thanx for your reply. This helps confirm what I thought. Now I know that if it's from the dilantin, I know how to manage it.

Know what you mean. I would wake up and my shirt would be soaked. This was happeing on a regular basis for me. It hasn't happen to me lately,it might becuase I am on a new drug and is a lower level.

i get em- not nightly, but frequently enough. i don't sleep well to start with- and i'm not sure if i wake due to the night sweats or just me not being able to drop into REM sleep. but my sweats are accompanied by shaking, not seizure like, erm, it's tremmors kinda. but throughout my entire body. i'm in a cold sweat, and shaking and i wake suddenly at least 5 nights a week at least once a night. i'm not on meds. this has been happening for over ten years (i started having seizures erm about 13 years ago) like i said, i've never slept well, but this is weirdness added on!
 
i've been on all the typical meds before - but i'm mainly unmedicated. i can't be bothered with the side effects, they can't seem to get the dosage right. so i'd rather not take em at all.
 
yeah- so that's my story o night weirdness. dunno if it helps any.
