I'm another member in the Night Sweat club. Unfortunately, I suffer from the sweats during the day as well. I know part of it for me is menopause related (I went into surgical menopause in 2007 after my last ovary came out) and part of it is from some of the meds I'm on. My doctor prescribed Clonidine for me to help, but I don't think it really has. Maybe it's lessened the frequency a bit, but that's it.
I often wake up during the night with numbness in my arms and hands. I always assumed I had just slept on them "funny" so they went to sleep - like pins and needles - but during a neurological workup, I was told it was probably mild carpal tunnel syndrome in my case and if I wanted to get the testing done, it could be arranged. I have splints to wear at night, but I rarely do...I don't want to have to deal with another health problem right now.
Hope you feel better soon and this doesn't become a permanent problem for you.
