Coping with wet beds due to night sweats

Postby Roxichik on Tue Jan 08, 2019 2:58 pm

Hi There,
I have suffered with night sweats and therefore a wet bed for years. I hate it because it makes me feel awful and I cannot do anything about it as I have Sjogren's Syndrome as well as menopause.

I have tried everything I think; diet, pills, hormones, clothes, no clothes but nothing has worked and I still sweat like I've run a marathon every night, until now that is.

Believe it or not WOOL has been the answer for me. I bought a wool topper for the bed and a wool duvet (4.5 tog) and since then I have woken in a dry bed every morning. I still sweat just as much I think but the moisture is spirited away. I don't know how it works and frankly I don't care. I may be late to the party and you all may know all this already so apologies if you do but had to share just in case this is news.
I got my topper and duvet on line but I'm sure you can get them on the high street too.

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.

Hi Lacemaker,
That is a lot cheaper than the cold gel pads they sell for humans. I have one I use for my face and I agree with you about the feet! Mine are always freezing.
