    Warning: I'm on mobile and my phone hates it so I apologize for any spelling mistakes, it's hard for me to go back and proof read.

    Hello everyone,
    So for the last couple of months I've been having really bad night sweats. As I am 29 I doubt that I'm going through menopause. Most if the time it's just my butt and thighs but sometimes it's like I jumped into a pool. It's dripping off my face and my clothes are soaked and I have to wake up my husband so we can change the sheets. I've been ignoring it for as long as I can but I've finally had enough. I've no idea if it's something to do with the surgery or if it's something unrelated. I did message my doctor but I'm impatient so I figured I'd ask you guys.

    You are running out of fat, right? Less fat means less estrogen. Less estrogen can lead to night sweats. Another possibility...D deficiency can cause sweating.

    I take 50k iu of D a day but it's also always dark out.

    I hope it's something trivial - although I know it's annoying.

    I made the mistake of looking it up and apparently I have kidney failure and/or cancer. Thank you Google for ruining me.

    Night sweats can be a sign of lymphoma. Not to add to the concerns created by Dr. Google, but you really should let your doctor know. Or could be a sign of thyroid disease. Or the aliens. Bottom line, no one can answer this one over the internet, it's time to consult a real live doctor.

    Much less concerning, antidepressants cause night sweats. I'm on a bunch and I think I may have started new ones around the time the sweating started. Kind of wish I kept track of that.

    You can go from healthy to dead with three clicks of Dr. Google! I also agree it's time for a real doctor.

    Unfortunately it's that time of the year where no doctor is ever available. Well, I'm not dead yet.

    Also, happy new year everyone! May you all reach your goals!

    OK, so you really should see a Dr. I like the alien ideas too, but when I had kidney failure, I had the worse night sweats ever.
