Night sweats are episodes of profuse sweating at night during

sleep. Typically, a person will complain that they wake up in the

middle of the night absolutely drenched with sweat. Night sweats

may occur in many known diseases, some serious, some not so

serious, but the majority of them are chronic and involve some sort

of inflammatory component. Aj :) Men 40 plus can go through

Andropause similar to a woman's Menopause and it can cause night

sweats and is normal. Also nightmares can give you night
