During Sleep My Body Temperature Rise to the 100's (Page 8)


November 1st, 2010
I get this too! The temperature in my room will will actually rise to an uncomfortable degree to me and my husband by the morning due to my unbearable heat radiating. I do not sweat profusely during this time, and I am a healthy eater, I mostly eat flax seed, cabbage soup, and nonfat plain yogurt throughout the day, so I can't see it being thermogenesis (as mentioned above). I have had this problem for a couple of years, and it is getting so intense, I really wish someone would have an answer for us. I even had an outpatient surgery this summer and when I woke up the anesthesiologist said she had never seen someone get so overheated while asleep....any clue anyone? Smile

Why does my body temperature rise unbearably while sleeping?
Hello all. I have had the same problem for years...soon after falling asleep my body temp rises and continues to rise until about 5 or 6 am when I wake up desperate to cool off. My skin is burning to the touch...as though you could fry an egg on it. I don't usually get the sweats either. Just burn up until it hurts. I have to keep my room cold and drink water just to survive the night. Yet I am normal during the day, even a bit cold in winter. Have had a thyroid test and sleep apnea test and both were fine. I will check this forum again...with luck maybe someone will find the answer.

Answer
I had this too, and it comes back if I don't follow the below 'diet'
1. No grains, inluding corn & rice
2. No dairy at all
3. Or barely any sugar
4. Little coffee and alcohol
5. 2L water per day

It's hard to do but it worked - takes about 7 days to get going an gets better. If I have a 'naughty food day' my night time nuclear switch comes back on.
It's also helped allergies, leg cramps, cold during day and much more.

Ps I had every test you can imagine before mgoi g to a GP who was also a nutrition expert. That's how I found out what to do.
Also, forgot on the list HEAPS of dark green veggies.

High bodt temp when asleep
Could it be connected to high blood sugar?

I too have experienced this - my husband calls me an oven at night, odd because I have been diagnosed with Raynauds (cold hands and feet during the day) and am always cold during the day. I am 44 and have been healthy all my life - I have always wondered what this was about. I have just learned that my last thyroid test was abnormal and will soon have further testing. Perhaps this is thyroid related. Until now I have wondered if it was sugar related, I have tremendous sugar cravings. After reading all these posts I will definitley talk to my endo dr. at the next visit.

Sarcoidosis
I have sarcoidosis where I believe sweating is a side effect. My consultant doesn't agree but every sarcoid forum I've been on does agree. If I wake up I can get a towel and flip the duvet, but with the window open all night in late November, sweating is the last thing I expect. I can feel it bubbling up through my skin. I cam sleep through it and wale up v damp with mad hair I woke in the night with sweat runnin down my sides. This will b my 3rd year of this. Worse in the winter though.

Try this out
Hi all, same, fine during the day furnace @ night, wife WALKS into the room and can't handle it or finds it difficult to sleep next to me, checked out some information on testosterone, think it might be linked also to regulation of body, I know, I know I am a guy and women dont need testosterone, during research noticed that women do need a small amount of

testosterone and if guys have too much it is converted to oestrogen, and if guys dont have enough heating up a problem, the article that I read also states that 1 of the symptoms of low levels of testosterone is not sweating, apparantely has something to do with the some gland (please google) cant remember all the information

got hold of some natural testosterone, used it for 2 night (ointment to be applied @ night behind knees) worked wonders, gonna keep to it and will post if it sorts problem out.

Sleeping
Hi,

I also have an increase in body heat when I sleep. I normally have cold hands and feet and get cold easily. When I go to sleep I wear long pants, a shirt and sleep under a sheet and blanket. I exercise, eat right and am a healthy 31 year old female except for diagnosed insomnia (I don't snore). My thyroid has been checked on three separate occasions and is normal. I have also been checked for anemia and that has come back normal also. I have had complaints that sleeping next to me is like sleeping next to a heater. When I put my hand on my stomach I can feel the drastic difference. I was wondering if this could be a reason for my sleeping problems.

Waiting to break into a ball of fire.
Hi everyone; I am 41 yrs old and I have been dealing with this for years and doctors have no clue. It is just after 8am right now and I have yet to start cooling down and I have been up for over an hour. I have the same thoughts of spontaneous combustion, being able to an egg on me, all of it. I have sleep apnea and use the Cpap machine and still wake up 2 or 3 times a night to kick off blankets, wipe off the sweat, and my husband goes to sleep elsewhere some nights due to the radiating heat I throw off. I live in Ontario and barely ever wear a winter coat, usually a sweatshirt keeps me warm enough in the snow. But first thing in the morning I will walk outside in the snow with just a T-shirt and track pants to go out with the dogs or take out the garbage. I can't believe so many people have the problem and no doctor can give a straight answer.

Body Heats up during nightmares
I am very interested in this thread as well because i get very high body temp after having a nightmare. For some reason it only happens during the nightmares. I feel as if i am going to start a fire i get so hot. No sweats just heat pouring from my body. I would love to get a good answer to this as i think it may be a phenomenom.

A major cause for these symptoms
In most of the cases, the cause of night sweating plus raising of body temperature is due to chronic anxiety/stress which has been affecting one's autonomic nervous system. Body temperature normally rises slightly when one's body is getting ready to sleep, which signals brain to "relax"(=calm down nervous system) then a body will lower its temperature in order to slow down the functions of internal environment such as organs. However, one with autonomic nervous system is affected, due to anxiety/stress which has over stimulated adrenal glands, would see initial temperature raising as not just as calming signal but also as activation of nervous system. When body temperature is high, organs cannot rest/repair daily damages effectively thus many of those who experience high temp and night sweating have digestive issues and/or excessive dreaming. I'm an acupuncturist and have been treating several patients with these condition. If one can find the way to relax and changes attitude toward issues surrounding him/her, then all these symptoms might be improved. Otherwise, I recommend to find a good acupuncturist nearby Smile

what causes my torso to get extremely hot at night but am cold
in response to hikerr84 - I have exact same symptoms. I have had every blood test known to man(or so it seems), consulted a rheumetologist, etc. - My health is perfect, weight is perfect, female age 48, had the tests for Perimenopause twice in last year and they show all is perfect, BMI perfect, etc., just have this terrible aggrivation of the "heat thing" - had it for 1 1/2 years. All doctors I have seen just diagnose as Fever of Unknown Origin and send me on my way - they all say that nothing is wrong with me at all!

tohotallnight
I am a male age 44 and have suffered from these syptoms since I was a child. I have always slept with no cloths and only a sheet and light bedspread. When I mention the problem to doctors they usually laugh and ask if I'm going through menopause. HaHa! Big help Doc.

These hot sweating periods occur just as I begin to nod off. Often I wake up within 15 to 45 minutes of going to sleep. I have had complete bloodwork done multiple times which always appears normal. I have had brain scans with and without contrast as well as a nuclear scam and my brain appears normal, no lesions, polyps etc... Thyroid test show a healthy thyroid.

I finally visited a sleep specialist and after a sleep study I'm told that I am not transitioning between the stages of sleep properly and after 4 hour my brain starts sending the wake-up signal to my body. Over 400 times in the final 4 hours of an 8 hour sleep cycle. The final diagnoses was chronic insomnia complicated by a B vitamins deficiency in which symptoms include disturbed sleep, headaches, memory lapses, insomnia, hair loss, and dozens more.

It took 4 months of weekly injections to get my B vitamin levels to a level which alieviated a lot of symptoms but unfortunately the condition seems to only get worse with age.

Yes, this is accurate information. I neglected to post that I am also bipolar. Stress levels increase adrenal function and cause your liver to work overtime which does affect sleep. I have been told by some Doctors that eating within four hours of bedtime can have the same effect.

Over heating while sleeping
No answers here just happy that I'm not alone Smile. My nickname is the heating pad, I might have an incline to this mystery, I've suffered from Anxiety disorders for a very long time and I always have the need to be in a cool place, getting hot is equated to getting anxious (therefore I agree with the acupuncturist). I sleep with fans in my room even during winter... sadly my daughter 13years old has gotten used to sleeping with fans as well. My boyfriend tells me that it's like I have a fever. I have no insurance so I'm sure all the tests will be pricey.... but I want to make sure it's not a tumor or high blood pressure, I exercise a lot and drink plenty of water but the temperature still rises at night! I've been losing a lot of inches so I thought it was due to a higher/speedier metabolism. HELP SOMEONE Help!!! Sad

My feet are usaully cold during the day but heat up quickly when I fall asleep, even when taking a short nap I wll see an increase in body temp. any feedback on this appreciated.. thanks
