    Default Night sweats?

    Since I began to improve mid April, I also began to have Night sweats about 2 a.m. on half of all nights. Enough to awaken me. They stop within an hour.

    Neuro said many of his MS patients have this.

    PCP has run blood work and TB blood test. The latter is about to be done.

    Do you get night sweats?

    Yes.Yes. Yes. Been going on for about a year...I finally noticed that they were consistent. John and I had night sweats as a symptom of our lyme disease so we ran tests to make sure it was not active again.

    In the past couple of years I have developed new symptoms that are now routine parts of my daily life. Breathing and swallowing problems, night sweats nightly and very sensitive spots on my head that hurt with any touch. Excruciatingly painful. All the million tests have come back negative so we think it is all MS related.

    When I've had them, they've been in connection with a UTI that was involving the kidneys. They're miserable. I hope you can solve this problem. I assume you've been checked for a UTI?

    I do occasionally have them, but not routinely. I have a hard time getting my heat and air conditioning set the way I feel comfortable. In the daytime I freeze so like for thermostat to be high, but on days when I take my shot and take my shot out of the refrigerator to let it sit, I have to be careful that the house does not get too warm. At night I like to sleep with quite a bit of cover so I turn it down. I have figured that I was partly the cause of my night sweats.

    They are miserable whatever they are caused by and I hope you are able to get some relief.

    Since the night sweats have been occurring since April, I would think an infection would be unlikely. Not impossible, of course.

    Could it be a side effect of IVIG?

    I hope the cause can be determined and easily remedied.

    The IVIG is a good guess Rose. Meds are many times the cause of night sweats in other people.

    I had night sweats when I was 28. It was weird when it happened, but they went away after a couple weeks and I haven't had them since.

    Night sweats can be a sign of hypoglycemia. Is your blood sugar OK?

    Edited to add: I see that you've already said your PCP ran blood tests and they were OK.

    Yes. They monitor it closely since 35% of people with Stiff Person Syndrome develop Type 1 Diabetes. Good thought though!
