Has anyone experienced night chills or sweats?
Last night I was up for about 2 hours or so.  I felt so cold and was shaking and shivering really bad.  No matter what, I couldn't seem to get warm.  My husband put extra blankets on me and we turned the heat up more and he cuddled up close to me to try and keep me warm but nothing seemed to help.  Eventually it went away and then i started sweating really bad.  I didn't have a fever or anything like that.
It was kinda scary and weird.

That is a fairly standard Lupus symptom.

For me, I think I start sweating while asleep. Then I get cold from the sweat and wake up freezing. I have had to get up and not only change my clothes but also change my sheets on occasion. It seems to correlate with other inflammation symptoms. When my lupus is quieter and more under control, I am less likely to have night sweats. If you are "of an age" and female, it can also be a menopause symptom -- or can be a side effect of prednisone and changes in hormones.

Hope you feel better soon,

Thanks Lynnwood. I decided to go to the emergency room because it got to where I couldn't even function. I didn't even have the energy to lift my arms and I kept getting light headed. Turns out I have a kidney infection and I had a cyst rupture in my left ovary which was causing me pain in my left side. It seems like whenever I get sick all my energy just disappears. =( Thankfully I have an AMAZING husband and he understands what I am going through. He has took an extra day off work to stay and help me get better and help with the kiddies!!
