What Causes Severe Sweating While Sleeping?

There are many possible causes of severe sweating while sleeping. Some common ones include:

Obstructive sleep apnea . Obstructive sleep apnea is a disorder in which the muscles in your throat relax during breathing, so you stop breathing. If this happens when you’re asleep, it can cause restlessness and excessive sweating. It also may make snoring louder or cause you to wake up because it feels like there’s something blocking your airway. People with obstructive sleep apnea have an increased risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and early death. Treatment often involves wearing a device that helps keep the airway open during sleep (called an oral appliance). You may also need to use a continuous positive airway pressure machine (CPAP) machine at night to help prevent obstruction of the airways by relaxing your throat muscles and keeping them open more than usual during sleep time – usually every hour on average throughout the day and night hours – as well as treating milder forms of obesity such as insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome . These machines will require more maintenance than some other devices but they tend to be very effective over time if properly used
