During Sleep My Body Temperature Rise to the 100's (Page 5)


January 19th, 2010
i had the same problem. it started 2 years ago right after starting college. drink water. lots of it!not enough water causes dehydration and that can mess up one's body.i was drinking 3-4 cups of coffee a day, and not enough fluids.(and caffeine causes dehydration) sometimes i will go a whole day without drinking any water. i mean nothing at all some days!! i learn my lesson after visitting the ER for dehydration, and frequent migraines, i start drinking more water. i feel great. my hands arent as cold anymore. and my boyfriend told me last weekend that he was happy that i don't get as hot and sweety when sleeping anymore. that's a plus!

so drink plenty of fluids! and i don't mean soda, meaning coca cola, pepsy, or other sugary drinks. fruits are also good. specially oranges or water-mellon.
hope this solves your problem. because it sure helped me.

body temp rises while sleeping
I too have had ex's tell me and my new boyfriend that after i fall asleep I become a furnace. But i never break a sweat. I have tried to figure out what is causing it and how to correct it without any success. I have had blood work done and complete physical and found nothing wrong. So I would love to know if someone figures it out to let me know also.

Gluten-Dairy-Minerals?
Between all of my large family we have every combination of the symptoms mentioned above. What we have found so far is getting rid of dairy got rid of the sinus problems, but it wasn't until we got rid of gluten that the cramps, headaches, hair loss, etc., etc., etc., went away. Too much to put in here, just google everything about gluten intolerance and celiac disease. Also autism spectrum disorders, autoimmune diseases, etc., all related (ADD). The thing I am experimenting with now is a possible zinc deficiency (from what I have read re zinc / copper / iron imbalances). We were formerly on a vegan diet and I think it really messed up our zinc levels which are gradually coming back (no supplements, just dietary changes). In any case getting rid of all gluten and dairy and going on a hypoglycemic diet has made life amazingly better for all of us. (And yes, hormones make everything worse.)

solution
i have the same problem! i spoke to a doctor about it and he said not to worry. it is in fact beneficial for your health as it burns off calories as you sleep! i have found that this "condition" comes in quite handy when sleeping outdoors but not in an igloo because that sucka will melt!! i have also burned through several pillows and mattresses. happy sleeping!

Similar issues
Hi everyone, I am in my early 20s and have had similar problems waking up drenched in sweat and sometimes feeling ill. I was diagnosed with severe hyperthyroidism so I suggest getting your thyroid tested. it has since settled down in me but I still get very hot at night. In winter my partner will be sleeping in fuzzy pjs and wanting cuddles and still cold and i'll be in my underwear with just a sheet on and be too hot. For as long as I can remember I have slept with my feet out of the covers- I can't stand them in because I get so hot. I don't get cold in the day unless I'm inside ( sometimes I have blankets on in summer) but if I'm outside in anything above 25 degrees (celcius) I start feeling sick and faint. I would throw up at night and all the next when I was little if I got too hot. Very inconvenient and I feel like people think I'm a hyperchondriac, I just want to be well!! More serious causes of nightsweats are infections, HIV, thyroid nodes,and some cancers like lymphoma and tumours. Don't know if this helps but good luck everyone. -ck

circadian rhythm
hello, why dont you try 1 g aspirin before sleep? It can help dramatically lower body temperature and maybe improve also the problem with sleep fragmentation, that some of you have (but it can make problem worse, just try). Or maybe Melatonin before sleep (dose can vary from 0,5 mg to several mg) - it rules the circadian rhythm of sleep and initiates sleepiness in dark also by lowering body temperature. There may be a lot of causes, but not only diabetes, parasites, infections, thyroid and so on - it can be simple a disorder of the biological rhythms, maybe dysfunctional suprachiasmatic nucleus, as seen commonly in elder people.

Night-Time Sweats
I have read all of the above replies, snd the ones that mention some sort of momentary change in the regulation system of the body seam to be reasonable. There is another possibility that I would like to mention. There are drugs that cause body temperature to rise. It is possible that some one is drugging you without your knowledge. For years I have woken up with my hiar in a wierd shape. I have realized that I am sweating at some time during the night - not profusely, becasue the bed sheets are not wet in the morning, but wet enough to get my hair wet, which then dries and forms a pattern depending on the position I am in while sleeping. I attribute this behavior to being drugged. It does not take place when I sleep in motels while on a business trip. I would like to discuss this with everyone else who has noticed this symptom/effect.

Overheating while sleeping
My symptoms are all the same except for the sweating: I overheat until it makes my boyfriend sweat, he hates sleeping close to me because I radiate massive amounts of heat starting about a half hour after falling asleep. I wake up a lot throughout the night, I just never connected it to being too warm. We keep our house cooler at night in the winter, but this happens ANY time I sleep, even to take a nap. I sleep naked, and kick the blankets off once the heat starts to kick in. I don't know if it's related, but I have extremely vivid dreams, periodically ( maybe once every couple of months) my boyfriend will wake me because I was crying in my sleep and didn't know it. I grind my teeth really bad in my sleep too, to the point that I have abnormally strong jaw muscles. Friends and family who feel my jaw clenched think it's really weird. That's also the point when they realize I'm not exagerating about how bad it is. I know the dreams and grinding have always been there, I didn't find out about the overheating until I started having someone to sleep with who told me. Maybe there's an underlying cause for all of it. I also have terrible memory problems, and I am allergic to hair, human hair being the worst. When I come into contact with wet hair (even my own) I get itchy blotchy redness, that goes away after about 2 hours, but it still sucks. I have to keep well shaved in the netherlands because any humidity cause me to itch terribly. I've tested it too, it's not just my hair, its anyone's. Maybe someone else can relate... Hopefully!! Thank you all! I hope we get answers!

I don''t have an answer either but this is a very interesting topic. Have you thought about changing the temperature in your room prior to going to bed? I know sometimes I wake up so hot while sleeping that I want to throw the covers off. You may also want to check an herbal supplement that could help you sleep better. I have found that there are some natural aids out there that can help you.

call the doctor and ask him can you spend the night in the out patient hospital. and he watchover you to see what happens at that time. they do it for dream victims to see how they react in there dreams and sleep walkers why not for patients who get high tempertures at night.

Hello All,
In response to tammyokcity,I was wondering the same thing!! I just got on the computer and was wondering if there were any similar situations as to what I've been experiencing and I came across this post!! I hate to say it, but I'm so happy to know that there are people out there like me!Yes, some doctors could say, "oh, it's just a circulation problem" or " Maybe it has something to do with your cycle".....I can tell you it's not either one of those things! I mean, my skin feel sunburned to the touch because it's so hot, but there is no burn present and I have fair skin so going out into the sun is one of my least favorite things to do! I've mentioned to my husband that I feel like I'm going to spontaneously combust, I'm so hot! And, I could tell by his expression that he thought it was an incredulously ridiculous thing to say, so I don't dare mention it to a doctor! If my own husband thought it was a little nutty, imagine what my doctor would think! In my twenties and early thirties, this used to only happen while sleeping, I'd wake up hot to the core and drenched in a pool of sweat for no apparent reason, and then get so cold because I'd have to get out from under the covers to put on a new nightgown, but now, I guess about a year and a half afo, I started getting this sensation to where I'm not sweating and I don't have a fever, but I feel like my chest, back, stomach, and thighs are on fire and the rest of my body is cool to the touch!!! I have my thermostat set at 67 degrees right now so this is ridiculous! I wear comfy house dresses when I'm here at home and the material is very thin and breathable, so I don't know what my problem is!! I'm 38 now, and I don't know what to make of it!! I'm just relieved to hear stories from other people who are in the same boat I am!! Since this is a sleep disorder forum, I should also divulge that I do not have normal sleeping patterns...I did get three and a half hours this morning for last night; that's alot of sleep for me when I actually do get to sleep!

I'm Hotter Than Haiti!!!
Follow up to my above post...
I also wanted to know if any of you are exuding a burnt smell?!!! That's the only way I know how describe it! It's like when you go to a tanning booth and that smell, like melanin in your skin oozes out!! (But I don't go to tanning booths!) OMG..the pituitary gland secretes melanin....the pituitary gland also plays a role with body temp and sleep (but more so by the hypothalamus)...may we are'nt getting enough sleep and this is causing all of this to happen! Maybe we're overworking our pituitary gland and causing it to secrete too much melanin??? I don't know, I'm not a doctor. I just hate the smell! It smells like burnt toast or something, and at other times, it's like an overbearing sweet perfumey-chemical kind of smell! I can't get it off of me, not even with a shower! Does anyone else experience this?

Me too!
I am 32 and have the same problem, after a restless night's sleep I googled the symptoms and came across this thread. My thyroid is normal, I do take meds for high bp, and metformin to help with PCOS but that's it. It seems to have gotten worse in the last year or so. My husband has to put a blanket between us and I have woken him up more than once by reaching over during the night to touch him or snuggle and he says my hand is so hot it feels like I'm burning him. When it gets so bad that it wakes me up I can feel the matress and pillow underneath me is extremely hot. I haven't taken my temperature because I really thought that I couldn't be running a fever because I didn't feel bad or feverish, just hot. I can tolerate extreme heat outside, I live in NW Georgia and have always loved summertime, 90+ with high humidity. Friends always comment that I can get into a car that has been in the sun all day with the windows up and it actually feels good to me. I am going to the doctor today and will bring this up. Will post his response this evening.

Night Furnace... Year round... This is what I ran into.
I have the most wicked heat when I'm sleeping and like most I take scalding hot showers (that feel luke warm) and sleep in my skivvies at night. I've been told I'm unbearable in bed because of my extreme body heat. Ran a mtDNA test and found out I'm a haplogroup J and found out similar patterns among some of us Like genetics... I'd ask your mothers if they felt that way before... chances are it's genetic... Much like my alopecea. IDK... Probably doesn't answer your question... but Just a note I ran into thought I'd share.
