Why do we have night sweats?
To know how to get rid of and put an end to night sweats, it is important to know what their causes are, because in this way we can address the problem in one way or another. These are the most common:
- Menopause: The hormonal fluctuations that happen in this stage of the woman’s life are the culprits of night sweats. Estrogen dominance is the first and foremost reason for night sweats.
- Hyperhidrosis It is an excessive sweating that, as a general rule, appears in adolescence, which is why experts have linked it to endocrine and metabolic changes. This condition causes hands, armpits, legs and neck sweating in particular.
- Anxiety: Nerves, stress or anxiety can cause tensions while we sleep that transform into night sweats. This happens because nervousness causes the heart to pump harder generating greater energy consumption.
- Hormone Imbalance – Other hormonal problems during menstruation, adolescence, pre-menstrual tension and any other hormonal imbalance that occurs in our body can cause the dreaded night sweats.
How can we get rid of these night sweats?
