Body Temperature regulation
Please ask our experts your adult medical questions about ME/CFS here.
I have massive and sudden problems maintaining my body thermostat. Even when i am asleep i will wake up sweating and will grab some cool water to cool down What suggestions can the professionals make? The fluctuations do render me unconscious. This has been a problem for over 30 years.
I used to have extreme swings like this that diminished over time but now I'm peri menopausal I'm struggling with what may be a mix of the start of hot flushes and the ME. I used to wake at night in late twenties/early thirties soaked with my neck glands like golfballs but it was mainly in the first decade of ME. Maybe the things that help menopausal women could be of use? The 'chillow' for example is a pillow for keeping one cooler at night.
