I have a milky drink before bed, I only use the bedroom for sleep. It’s not too warm and nice and dark. I have real trouble gett...

Re: Coping with wet beds due to night sweats

my sweats are normally around the neck area. I have found that using a gel pet pad (available from B&M for £5) which I put my neck on helps control the length of time I have the sweats. For some reason they never reach my feet which are always cold. I have a wool mattress cover.
