i have been having a bunch of questions on here, sorry.  heres another, over the past two weeks or so i've been having bad night sweats.  i'll wake up and my hair is wet, my pillows soaked.  i have always seemed to get hot quickly.  i sleep with air on and a fan right in my face.  i've never had this happen before.  is this common in lupus?

It may be common in many ailments, but it could be serious. You should contact your doctor about it. You might try taking your temperature to see if you have a fever as well. I would definitely try a check up for it.

Are you taking prednisone? It has caused me to have night sweats before. Judy

I don't know your age but could you be needing hormones?

You can use the "Serach Site" box at the top of the page to find more info about night sweats.

This is what I found with a quick search of "Lupus night sweats".  LOTS of info.

I hope it helps.
