Anyone else have night sweats that aren't due to menopause?
I struggle with FM,Raynauds Syndrome,gastroparesis, IBS and depression. I trust in God with all things. Been a tough journey and it's not getting any easier but thanks to God and my family I am not alone.

I do. Course it seems like I sweat all the time. I know some of the sweating can be blamed on my meds. I usually just sweat on my face and under my hairline but at night I wake up soaked and have to change pjs. I hate it. It's not every night but it's still a pain none the less.

I used to have horrible night sweats.  But then I was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea.  I haven't had the night sweats once since I started cpap therapy two years ago.

Also, my doctor has tried me on all kinds of antidepressants (for sleep/pain), and every single one of them caused me to sweat profusely all day long.

I went through a period where I woke up soaked and the sheets were soaked, not sure why but it stopped and I haven't had the problem again.
If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you won't.
I may not do things like other people, but I get things done in my own way, in my own time.

I also wake up with night sweats, and I can safely say they are not from menopause. :)

I get night sweats but not as often as I used to.  I had hepatitis for years and did not know it.  The sweats were so bad then.
I still get sweats but not every night and Like Richard I can safely say mine is not menopause.  Complete hysterectomy 10 years ago.

I used to get them very bad. For some reason, they stopped when I started taking trazodone.
