During Sleep My Body Temperature Rise to the 100's (Page 11)


January 8th, 2012
My body temp rises everytime I sleep also. I remember being a child, thinking that naps make me sick. This has continued on my whole life. I don't normally sweat, just that my body gets very hot, and my husband says that he can feel it radiating off of me. Especially in the afternoons, I benefit greatly from a fan, to allow me to 'pull-out-of-it'. I have had a periodically recurring dream, that I know that I am sleeping, but can't wake up or make a sound. I think it is related, because those times I always finally pull out of it, but am sooooo hot. I normally feel a little like a slug, for about 20 mins after I wake up, then get back to normal. I am now mid 40's, and guess I just accepted that this is the way that I am. Sure would like to know.

Body Temperature INCREASES while sleeping
I have had the EXACT same experience, save I am a male.... Since childhood my body temp has risen SUBSTANTIALLY at night, often causing my wife to scoot close in the winter and away in summer. I have done extensive research on this without garnering any real help as most issues seem to be related to other problems.
I have noticed that my Father, Brother and Sons (no sister or Aunt to test) all have the same physiological response while sleeping - independent of their external environment, diet, mood or emotional situation, age, geographical location, body fat content and MOST IMPORTANT - Independent of any secondary health problems!
After years of investigation and medical discussions I have come to the educated conclusion that the trait of a raised temperature during a persons sleep can be attributed to a genetic difference. I have a substantial (50%) amount of Native American heritage in me - my father being 100% and my son's 25%. (alaskan native.)

I believe that this is nothing more than a regressive gene that has yet to be identified. However, I am speaking specifically about my own experiences - from childhood on - I would NOT think this about a case with a person that suddenly develops these symptoms...

I am actually quiet proud of the fact that I don't need a blanket in Alaska! That's saying something eh? Course....Global warming might make me quickly feel cursed in the years to come...

All my best!

I have this problem as well. I go to bed comfortable and wake up in the middle of the night with everything around me soaked in sweat. I have found that this gets worse as the time decreases between the last thing I eat and when I go to sleep, so I try to eat at least a few hours before I go to bed. Also, My blood pressure and everything is normal, but I am a very tense person i.e. my muscles get tight without exercise. One day I went to my doctor with tension headaches and he prescribed some sort of anti-depressant medication (No, I am not depressed in the least). He prescribed the lowest dose possible and said that it when used in small doses it simply acts like a slight muscle relaxant. I have found that this also helps me make it through the night without getting so hot. I am no doctor, but I have a feeling that when I sleep I get very tense and that generates a ton of excess body heat. It has not totally cured it, but it has gotten much better and when I do wake up, I am not nearly as hot and am not nearly as sweaty. Perhaps you could bring this up with your doctor if they can't find anything else.

overheating during sleep
HI everyone,

Please Google the link between serotonin and sleep and body temperature regulation. I have the same problem at night minus sweating. But I wonder how many of us are night owls, occasional insomniacs or have mood fluctuations linked to. Serotonin. Serotonin's role in sleep regulation is very important so I'm wondering
If a difference in circadian rythm ie night owl vs morning bird or if some more serious difference in serotonin function ie symptoms of which would be insomnia, possibly SAD, depression etc. Could be the culprit. Thyroid function is also intimately
Linked to serotonin regulation. Hopes this gives possible help

My wife's super hot
I am checking out this discussion while awake beside my wife at 2 am.. The heat she is dissipating is so much. Her conditions exactly match with many as mentioned above.. I've never seen her sweating.. She takes unimaginable hot baths.... She makes me sweat without touching her. I hope it's not a serious problem

My wife has this same issue. She puts off so much heat at night I can't sleep. We keep the house at 64 in the night with a celing fan and an floor fan. Even with all of that she wuickly climbs the temp under the covers to 105-106. The only way I can get any kind of reprieve is to use a body pillow as insulation to buffer the heat from my side of the bed. I love sleeping with my wife I am a very cuddly guy and love to be close...but her skin is so hot to the touch it almost scalds you. She has all of the same symptoms described....ALWAYS cold even in 80 degree weather, takes showers so hot I can't step in and she says they're luke warm, she doesn't sweat unless it's over 100, even at the gym I will be pouring sweat and she is bone dry. I don't get it, nobody seems to have an answer.

I would agree with this. I also light up like a "furnace" at night, but during the day I can be cold (i like hot showers and warm weather too). My theory is also that I am in a relaxed state (much different from my normal life in which I live a busy, fast paced life and have some energetic blocks) and my body is in a high state of healing/relaxation. Also, I do see some ties to hormones with this and the energetic state. Are any of you hypoglycemic or diabetic? My hormone levels rise and drop fairly easily, and I have to watch my consumption levels (eat small meals throughout the day) and sugar in-take so I don't easily crash into recovery. I saw a person on this thread has thyroid issues. I do a slightly healthy amount of anxiety, and I believe this also creates an energetic imbalance.

I have this same problem aswell. I'm 22, and when I sleep I heat WAY up, to the point I will wake from it, and have to turn on the air (To the complaints of my roomates in winter) or such. when I roll over (My computers at me head, and I sleep on my back, so when I wake up, I roll onto my stomach) the place I was sleeping in feels as though you left a heating pad in it. UNLIKE others here, however, I do NOT do well in high heat, in fact, in high heat, my heat will rise too. Im in the desert so It gets from 113* to 120* in the summer, and Ill get a fever, and faint in heat easily... just as the same, in winter, my body temperature will lower and I wont heat up... EXCEPT when I sleep. when Im sleeping I ALWAYS get super hot. I however, know precisely when it started, unlike most here.

This started all when I was 14. I ran away (Abusive parent) and it was cold, about 40 with probably 50 mph gusts (Normal here) so I was wearing a thick sweater and a thick jacket (Though holey jeans, they ripped hopping a fense early on. I still have them! ) So all night from about 2am I was wearing these heavy clothes in a cold night, working strenuously... however, I was out until 2pm.... it started heating up around 9 and by 10 it was probably 90-100*, and I was still in the sweater and jacket unable to feel the change in the temperature at all, despite being soaked in a cold sweat, so whatever happened that night, Im pretty sure i !**@! myself up doing it.

This caught my attention aswell, because in fact, I am a night owl, I have SO much trouble sleeping at night, Im also Bipolar as can be, lol. How peculiar that they may be related.

hot when i sleep why?
I have the same issue as most, I sleep hot at night,and am cold during day if it's 70 or below. Had this ssue for long time, well least as long as I have been married and my husband mentioned be being hot at night,to the pint of sweating. Even when we hve the fan or ac on still get hot. I never gain a single pound really so thought it could be metabolism. But also smetimes when I get really hot and body mixes with cold ac or fan, then I will develop a fever blister. Not sure if anyone else has gotten those. But thought tht might be related since it is a small form of like herpes 1 or smething like that. Never metioned to my doctor. Ut will bring all up ad see what type of response I may get. Any new suggestions would be appreciated.

There is one thing I recommmend everyone hear research. This is continually being related to numerous disorders & diseases. There are developments happening all the time, but unfortunetely the majority does not know about this.

This endogenous antioxidant Glutathione, that is the only one your body makes, is missing in action. The environment water, air, & foods is killing it and not even most doctors know about this!

Folks if you are hear to learn really how your body function, than you will consider educating yourself on this one.

P.S "We must sit down before a fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humble wherever and to whatever abysses nature leads, or we will miss the boat."

increase body temp!!
I have high body heat it wakes me up! I dont wake up thisty or feeling dehydrated,or even sweat,as soon as i wake up and not think about it it goes away, could be a mental thing durring my sleep?? it has happened a couple times durring the day but it took me a while to realize it! possibility of a hypothalamic tumor or disregulation (part of your brain that controls body temp) if you refer to sleep apnea...individuals stop breathing while asleep, well this is similar except your hypothalamus may be forgetting to regulate body temp.
RECOMENDED AN MRI TO RULE OUT? Ughh FUSTRATING NO ONE HAS ANSWERS TO THIS!!!!

im happy that i am not the only one with this type of situation but when i go to sleep i have had a previous girlfriend measure my body temp while i was sleeping and she read a temp of around 107-109 consistently throughout a month, she told me i didnt look uncomfortable or in pain but just sweating , during the day my body temp is usually very warm to the touch , i had noticed something very beneficial to this high body temp i figure that it has to be burning off any type of fat i have been 125 lbs and 5 foot 11 for 10 years now and have tried to gain weight but unable to ... also i heal unusually fast a large cut on my arm healed whiten about 3 to 4 days

High temp overnight
Fascinating conversation. No surprises for guessing that I too share your symptoms, though my night sweats tend to be localised to certain parts of my body rather than all over, which causes a rather unpleasant rash. Like the rest of you I am a fairly cold person during the day. I am usually quick to feel chilly, particularly in the evening, but about 10 mins before I fall asleep, my body temperature rises dramatically. My husband can even tell when I need to go to bed (even if my brain wants to stay up) because I will start heating whilst awake. I sleep naked, with a thin cotton sheet, a fan directly on me and the window open (even in winter)... whilst my husband has his own duvet! I've always been this way and thought it was normal, until my husband (then boyfriend) pointed out that "going nuclear", as he calls it, is not something any of his previous partners did. I do have a poor quality of sleep because of it. If I only wake up once in the night, it's a miracle! On the flip side of that, on the rare occasions that I don't go nuclear, I know I'm genuinely ill.

heating up and beating fast in the middle of the night
This is a new experience for me. I'm 60 and recently it seems extreme. The heat wakes me. Last year I went to a health institute in San Diego, O.H.I. I became a vegan.. but have recently slipped back into a little chicken and even some red meat occasionally. It seems like the heat and hear beat is extreme when I have alcohol of any kind or maybe the meat has to do with it too. I think i felt the best when I was not drinking anything and not eating meat.. maybe I should go to a naturopath? I have not taken my temp or my BP but my heart was beating SO fast.. I know it was very high.
