Are you menopausal and have night sweats? It is one of the common symptoms of menopause.
How long do your night sweats last? They can be anywhere from half a minute to ten minutes. You may get them a few times an hour to occasional night sweats each month.
With night sweats there may be a feeling of sudden, intense heat. This is due to blood vessels expanding, which increases blood flow. This is then followed by blood vessels contracting. You sweat, your skin turns red, and your heartbeat may speed up.
Hot flashes and night sweats occur during menopause because of changing hormone levels, affecting the body's temperature control. This can cause fragmented sleep patterns.
Along with night sweats can come heart palpitations. Once this starts you may mainly have light or REM sleep. Long periods of deep, restorative slow-wave sleep may lessen considerably.
How to manage night sweats during menopause naturally?
