During Sleep My Body Temperature Rise to the 100's (Page 4)


October 26th, 2009
I'm curious to know - i have a friend who has this same problem as do I. We have both been overweight growing up in our teens and are quite healthy now.

Could this be a factor? seemed like a odd coincidence.

Giving of heat
From reading all these posts I think there are two different types of problems here.

One is waking up sweating and feeling hot yourself as well as giving off heat, and the other is what my girlfriend has which is being extreamly hot and giving off heat and yet she complains of being cold and sleeps with the Duvet up to her ears whilst I lay next to her with the covers off as she is giving off so much heat!!

The problem of being hot to touch and yet you feel cold is what my ex also had and she had a extreamly bad underactive thyroid.

I have asked my present girlfriend to get it checked out. But she is also anaemic anyway and she to never drinks enough water. So I am not sure if this has any bearing on the problem or she may have an underactive thyroid she doesnt know about.

With regards to parasites in the body that a couple of posts mentioned. I went for chinese herbal medicine for tiredness and dermatitis they said the same thing it was it was a build up of a fungle layer inside caused by eating dairy products and yeast based products etc. I was given rather EXPENSIVE medicine and told to cut out dairy and yeast based products, whilst it did help my dermatitis I am not sure if the medicine really helped or it was infact just cutting out the above that sorted it. I would try just cutting certain things out of your diet and save some money. Drink plenty of water and allow your liver to do its natural detoxifying of the body.


Bakerdavey also mentioned restless leg sydrome and that you are taking medicine for it, can you tell me what it is and does it work? As the only cure that I can find on-line says the medicine is Rohipnal based!! and can have terrible side effects. It also says doctors are bafailed by it and its not really yet recognised as a real problem.

My restless leg drives me up the wall and I cant cuddle my girlfreind when she is asleep because of the heat and I cant cuddle her always when we are awake as my legs are driving me crazy

why do I get hot when I sleep
I googled this as well. I get so hot at night i can barley breathe and it doesn't even matter if it is snowing outside. I also wake with servere headaches sometimes. Has any one gotten an answer to this yet? As a matter of fact I think it is even worse now that I have had my womb removed.

I have found your posts very interesting. I am a 30yr old female in very good health whose body temperature rises at night-time. I don't have to be sleeping, my body temp seems to rise in the evening regardless of the time of year. I don't have a problem with this temperature rise and have no problems sleeping, however, my boyfriend says I turn into a furnace at night and he can feel the hest radiating off me in bed. One thing I have noticed is that I hardly ever get ill, i haven't had a cold or flu in years and i suspect that a rise in body temp at night will actually help fight off the start of an infection. So it might not be a bad thing after all! I'd be interested to hear if any of you agree with this. Thanks. E

Heating the house with body heat!!
To all whom have posted here, I agree, there seems to be a couple of different scenarios. I radiate so much heat at night, well it is simply amazing. I keep the covers on me at all times, while I am hot, I am not actually sweating. I don't suffer from cold feet or hands, nor do I have leg cramps. My sinuses are fine. My digestive tract could be suspect. I don't sweat much, if ever. I eat pretty healthy. This is the craziest thing I have ever heard of. My mother was like this too. If someone ever figures it out please post immediately. This situation is uncomfortable, but I feel somewhat better knowing I am not the only person with this condition.

I really don't care for a doctor's off-the-top of the head hypothesis that something must be severly wrong with us. The everage doc just does not know the answers as they don't specificlly research this issue (as you can!! the internet is a wonderful resource).I will keep you posted with what i have learnt.
Do you also awaken to feel as if you're "vibrating"?

Radiating Heat starting from my back
I've just started to have heat radiating from my back a few months ago. Then it permeates just about everywhere else too. I didn't grow up with this. I can't sleep at night! I toss and turn and change pillow sides and everything to cool down. I've applied ice directly on my back and that relieves me to get to sleep sometimes. I've been stressed recently and that has aggravated it. I drink water all day long. I rarely drink carbonated drinks and don't drink alcohol. I'm fine during the day, but it starts as soon as I lay down. It doesn't matter if I move to the couch either (only cool down for a few minutes until those mattresses are hot too) I've had cold hands and feet that have got worse over the years. I have migrains too. However, the cold hands feet and migraines seem to be part of menstral cycle blow flow changes. I do wonder for the women if this coincides. I don't think it's menopause, because I don't flash with heat. I'm going to check out detoxifing with a holistic nutritionalist like some of you have said. I'm also going to the doctor in January (next appt avail.) I'll have him check for thyroid, blood count, hormone levels, etc. I've written a lot of notes from what all of you have mentioned. I hope to find some answers. I will post if anything helps me. Let me know if anything has worked for you like this already. Any other answers? I need sleep!

I'm 35, female, and about 30 lbs overweight. I have hyperhidrosis, so I so sweat a lot during the day, mostly from the armpits. Oddly enough, when I sweat at night, it is from everywhere else on my body - back, legs, face... I have had the problem of waking up hot for as long as I can remember. It prevents me from getting a full night of sleep. I wake up many times throughout the night, feeling very hot and sweaty. I'll remove the covers and wake up a few minutes later FREEZING but almost as soon as I replace the covers I get hot again. In the summertime it is just unbearable. Even in the winter, though, it's terrible. Last night I woke up at 3am and stood outside in my underwear to cool off. It was 16 degrees fahrenheit last night. To address some of the previous posts, I must say that I drink plenty of water, I don't ever wake up with a headache, I do feel cold quite a bit during the day, I feel especially cold when I am very tired, I have very dry skin, and I am a smoker.

Just a note for those looking at "holistic" methods: A few years ago I went to a holistic doctor for my overly dry skin and rashes that I was getting - it was a scam. Holistic medicine is a scam. I spent $500 on herbs and junk. It was supposed to get rid of the toxins (caused by eating dairy and processed food) that were in my digestive tract. The herbs tasted gross, it was too many pills, and I ended up letting the pile of "remedies" just sit there. One month into the 3 month treatment I went in for a check up. She said "Excellent! Your toxins are 1/3 of the way gone!" What she didn't know was that I hadn't taken any of the treatment past day 3. She was just faking it. I was 1/3 of the way into treatment, so she said I was 1/3 of the way cured. It was a waste of time and money and I would not recommend it to anyone.

well, people if any of you are sleeping on your stomach, pls change your sleeping position. it appears that when you sleep on your stomach you put excessive pressure on your lungs to breathe. i am particularly a stomach-sleeper myself and i get Hot at night, i noticed when i woke up feeling hot and changed my sleep position, i would cool down immediately. obviously this is Not a cure Smile just a remedy. other thing i must emphasize is to "LISTEN TO YOUR BODY" ... sometymz just spend 2 to 3 hours continuosly listening to your body. Listen to what it is saying to you. Feel every little thing that changes and happens and start writing down notes of when, how, where changes occur and present this to your doc immediately on your next visit. Most of us seem to be overly concerned with the after-effects of something underlying, and we tend to ignore when our body is feeling Ok, we want to totally ignore that state, and then when heat strikes only then do we want to take note. you have to be able to help your doc by providing him full details and disclosing as much as possible "without confusing him".. that's why you must spend 2 - 3 hours listening to every kind of change in your body and write down your notes. where is it happening ? how is it happening ? when did it start happening ? please people, think of approaching it from that angle.

night sweats
I am a 27 year old male I drive a dilivery truck after I work in the warhouse for the same compony and I go to school at night. When I sleep my body temp gets up to about 105. Untill now I thaut that this was due to injesting up to 4 stacker 2 with a can of red bull and a shower to open all my sweet pors. I thought that was why but I have the same exact simptoms as the rest of you.

I have had this problem off and on for the last couple years as well. The biggest difference for me is I have noticed that nights like tonight.(I am once again awake because I am to hot). I ate a lot just before going to bed. I am not saying this is happening to all of the rest of you. For me if I don't eat to close to bedtime it seems like I don't have this issue. I think again for me that my body temperature rises incredibly when digesting food at night. I would be curious to find out if all of you are eating close to bed time.

Me too...tests always come back normal
It is amazing to see so many others with the same issue, I've never known anyone else that this happened to!
I too radiate tons of heat while sleeping, wake up with night sweats, and am usually freezing during the day -especially my hands, feet, and nose and sometimes to the point that they hurt (even just due to air conditioning in the summer). I don't sweat much during the day even in the summer unless hiking or doing something active outside when really hot (90's+ and humid) and even then it's only my face and back of neck under my hair. Air conditioning makes me freeze so in summers so I always carry a jacket. I also love long HOT showers. I've been this way since I was a child, night sweats and all, and no doc can tell me why. I also have always dealt with headaches/migraines in the am and during the day (especially if stressed or tired) and charley-horses at night, though my PTA husband has helped me significantly reduce those. I sleep in a tank top or t-shirt all year around and radiate tons of heat while my husband sleeps fully clothed. He too loves my radiating heat in the winter but not in summer! For me, I can feel myself get hot and start radiating heat within 10 minutes of lying down (even laying on the couch with just a throw blanket). It's usually a couple hours before the sweating starts and is usually my chest and back that sweat (regardless of sleeping on my side, back, or stomach). Even in winter I often have to have my arms and feet out from under the covers to cool down. I can't sleep without at least a sheet over my torso though. I drink water all day (started making sure to drink enough for the headaches and cramps), take an all-natural multi-vitamin every day, never eat fast food junk, eat very little sugar, very little alcohol, etc. I do have chronic fatigue issues though, as I am always tired regardless of 7, 8, 10, 12 hours of sleep, lack stamina when doing most things and am worn out afterwords - even for everyday tasks, have frequent muscle and joint fatigue & pain, blurred vision when tired (but 20/20 when tested), etc.
I too have had blood work done multiple times (everything that has been mentioned by previous people, so I won't re-list them all) and it always comes back normal. It seems like most docs aren't interested in figuring it out as soon as I say it's been a lifelong problem, like if I've dealt with it this long (I'm 33) then it's just the way I am and just a quirk I have to deal with. They only want to hear about a problem if it's new symptoms. They obviously don't understand how miserable it is to be soo cold during the day and then bake at night tossing, turning, and sweating.

Over heating before and during sleep, even using no covers.
I'm a fit 75 man and apart from hypertension fine; however I have exactly your problems; they started about three years back. However, my late wife used to enjoy the warmth even when I was fifty. I of course became too hot when she slept close.
I did when I was about sixteen have about a month of night sweats where had to sleep on a towel.
The only info I have ever found is that tuberculosis can cause night sweats.
My modal temperature (ear ) is 35 C.
I take 50mg atenolol daily.

An answer that's not scary...
My temperature also rises when I sleep. I've never taken my internal temperature, but I've been told that I feel as hot as if I had a fever. I do not sweat, and it does not affect my sleep.

Basically, it says that your body has to displace the heat within it to the outer parts (namely the skin) in order to cool the core body temperature down enough to sleep. Which means the parts of us closes to the atmosphere are much hotter than usual. So, no tumors, no diseases. It looks like, for some of us, it's just normal.

Similar Symptoms - hot at night, sweating, don't feel hot myself
I am a 28-year-old female with similar symptoms to many on this thread:
1. heat up significantly at night, furnace effect, etc. My mom says I've been like this since childhood. My husband can't hold me at night because I'm too hot and he overheats. However, I only rarely feel "too hot" at night, and really struggle with feeling cold even with several blakets and a duvet on me.

2. I recently started having severe night sweats. It coincided with a move from a hot, tropical climate to a temperate one (we are now in N. California). I am always freezing in our house, but I think the extra covers I need are making me sweat at night now. I drench the bedsheets almost every night. It got slightly better once we turned the furnace to 58F, but not a cure.

3. I have Reynaud's Syndrome (cold feet and hands to the point of numbness) and am usually cold. I also have hyperhydrosis in my hands and feet, although it seems to have gotten better as I get older - still an issue, though.

4. I am normal weight - 5'6" and 132 pounds. I have allergies but no other health issues. I walk a lot every day and am in pretty good shape. I drink a couple of glasses of wine most nights, and eat a balanced diet.

Being a furnace at night has never bothered me (it's my husband who suffers) but now that we moved to California and I'm getting night sweats, it's really affecting my quality of sleep.

Wow, great discussion! Maybe I can finally figure out what my deal is!

I'm female, 38, live in northern Europe. I also get very hot while sleeping, radiating heat and invoking claims that one can cook eggs and bacon on my belly or back. I don't know what I was like as a kid; it's only when, in adulthood, a combination of poor sleep plus my partners complaining about my body heat that I started realizing that heating up at night was not normal. There are night sweats, but not all the time, but most often when my periods are coming. (I'm not on the pill or any other medication.) My sleep is poor more often than it is good.

I am also "warm blooded" in general, comfortable in a t-shirt while everyone else is bundled up. I sometimes radiate heat while awake, to the point where it bothers people sitting next to me, especially on a hot summer day.

The only time I get cold is when I'm sick (well duh), when I've been drinking a fair amount of alcohol, and sometimes (but not all the time) right before I go to sleep. Or when it's really cold (-20 Celsius or colder) outside.

My blood pressure on the low end of normal (usually 90-100/60), and my resting pulse is around 60 bpm. I am overweight and overfat - height 162 cm, weight 68 kg, bodyfat 28%. Struggle to lose fat; don't really care about weight. However I am in decent physical shape - 2400 meters in my 12 minute Cooper test taken Saturday, bench press 55 kg, squat 85 kg, deadlift 100 kg. Train 300+ minutes a week - weightlifting, martial arts, cardio. Eat a good variety of food. I don't eat a lot of sugar (don't have a sweet tooth). I prefer savory/salty over sweet, and actually crave salt. I don't consume that much caffeine; 1 cup coffee with breakfast and 2-3 cups green tea during the day.

I've been told before I might have a thyroid problem (based on a certain subset of symptoms) but all my tests come back OK. Then again, I keep hearing that doctors don't know how to interpret the tests properly (?!).

It seems like a lot of us have similar problems but no proper diagnosis.

Night heat
I have also experienced night heat. I am 39 years old but have had this ever since I can remember. It began with putting my feet outside the covers. I have recently been diagnosed with hemochromotosis, a high iron level. This is quite common and many people have this without knowing it. It is genetic, usually both parents have the gene. I was wondering if this could possibly have anything to do with my night heat? I have had quite a few phlebotomies to reduce my iron level and the night heat seems to get better. Just a thougth.

Hmm. I think it started with putting my feet outside the covers too, now that you mention it.

I forgot to mention that I toss and turn a lot. Quite violently, according to my husband.

I tend to have lowish iron levels.
