Does anyone's body temperature increase at night? Is it correlated to the amount of inflammation you have going on? My daughter has had night sweats pretty much since diagnosis. She doesn't sweat at the moment for some unknown reason but she complains of being hot and refuses blankets etc. I know this is correlated with AI issues but what's the explanation?

During my flare I would have drenching night sweats that would soak the sheets. I believe it is one of the symptoms of IBD, probably more common with Crohn's. I may or may not have Crohn's colitis.

I had other unconventional symptoms such as a high fasting blood glucose level in the morning. The doctors could not explain it. The good news is that all symptoms disappeared when the flare ended. I hope your daughter gets into permanent remission soon.
58 y/o male. DX ulcerative colitis Feb08, possible Crohn's colitis DX March 2010.
No Meds, allergic to Mesalamine. Allergy to shellfish contributed to 1st major flare.
Watch diet while in remission, I find Psyllium seeds especially helpful.

Boswellia, E. Coli Nissle (Mutaflor), turmeric, fish oil, S. Boulardii, VSL3, resveratrol, multiple vitamin, extra D3, K2, C, high gamma E, magnesium, cat's claw, slippery elm, phosphatityl choline, and glutamine. Copious amounts of fruit and vegetables, no soda, no hfcs, no trans fat, tea instead of coffee, very few processed foods, no carrageenan.

Yeah I had night sweats during the worst of my flare. It's hard to rank all the wretched symptoms of UC, but I am thinking that might have been the most hated symptom for me.

Night sweats are common for an IBD. I get them a lot and it so annoying! I hate waking up to wet bed clothes :(

Thanks all. She's not sweating but is warm to touch and says she's hot. What causes this? Any ideas?

I would think it's the constant battle going on in our bodies that increases our temps. I know when I flare, I tend to get warmer faster and my night sweats are unreal. When I am in remission, I run a bit hot at night too.

Is she feeling cold and shivery a while before she feels hot?


Have you taken her temperature when she's feeling hot?



What time of the night/morning is it....and how long after she goes to sleep?



What meds is she on??



How old is she? I remember 9....has she started to develop at all? if she has...it's hormonal.

I get night sweats even when well. I get chilled easily too. When I'm flaring I run fevers alot. Immune system maybe?
Diagnosed over 14 years ago.
Started mild but now pancolitis.
Apriso, Rowasa, SCD, probiotics, tumeric, vit. d, biotin, fish oil.
Ortho, Claritin, albuterol, Celexa.
Found Rowasa and SCD through this site and am looking back on my worst flare ever. So thankful to feel almost normal again!!!

I had this same problem. Before going into the hospital (before I was even diagnosed with UC), i was getting nightly fevers and night sweats. It was explained to me in the hospital that the fevers are due to inflammation and infection. I was put on flagyl, Asacol and Prednisone and that did the trick. I haven't had a problem with fevers ever since. I would look into making sure you aren't infected because if it's going untreated, your symptoms will get much worse like mine did.

D.K.S.,

Please explain 'infection'. I don't take maintenance meds. Flagyl snuffed out my flare 6 months ago and now I try to maintain remission with supplements and diet.

I asked my doctor how Flagyl and Cipro can be effective for treating Crohn's disease if IBD is considered an autoimmune disorder. He was clueless but apparently doctors at your hospital mentioned infection. This is the first time I have heard anyone even hint of it.

The only theory I could think of for antibiotics is that it would quickly kill the malevolent gut bacteria that the SCD or other diets try to starve out. Dr. Barody's protocol for fecal transplantation begins with antibiotics before implanting microbes from a tested donor. Instead of fecal transplantation I am using daily probiotics and maintenance diet to keep malevolent bacteria from returning. Even though this seems to work it is only speculation on my part.

Apparently you have learned that now conventional doctors mention infection as a cause of UC. I have done a ton of research for UC and this is the first time anyone has mentioned infection, unless you are talking about C-Diff. My doctors did not know about UC infection either.

I am always hot. Nights are bad for me also. I have air conditioner on high and ceiling fan going. I thought it was from the 6mp. I was just doubled on the 6mp and am so hot most of the time I call them my personal summers but sometimes it is really unbearable, any ideas on how to cope with this? Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night and take a cold shower and go to bed damp and it sometimes helps but during the day I can't do that.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2/10.
Currently on....6mp, omperezole, asacol, sinemet, prednisone
zofran, ambien
Sort of under control, waiting for next colonoscopy to see how big
the ulcers are.

First let me say that I am very glad to have found this forum!  It is comforting to know that I am not alone in the symptoms I experience. 
 
My night sweats are horrible!  I just attributed it to my age and thought that perhaps I was entering the peri-menopause stage of my life.  However, I now realize that my night sweats started shortly after my diagnosis at age 35!  I sleep with my window wide open even in the winter months and frequently wake up completely soaked in sweat.  During the day at work, everyone else can be complaining of being cold and I am sweating!  This is completely opposite of how I used to be...........
You don't know how strong you really are until being strong is your only option.
My best friends are stain resistant..... I can spill anything on them.

Same here. I would get night sweats when I was flaring. I'd wake up with the sheets and pillow case all wet.
Colitis is in remission. No longer get IBS.
 
Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No crystalline fructose, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, vitamins & supplements, Lexapro (for stress).
