Q: What causes sweating in the middle of the night? (midnight sweat)
A: Sweating at midnight is not uncommon, but it does occur. The fact that you were sleeping and woke up to feel hot and sweaty may indicate a health problem. Most of us get more than enough sleep and we do not need to wake up sweating! That said, there are various medical reasons why we might sweat during our sleep or while awake later on in the day or evening. If you have any questions about your symptoms please talk with your doctor who can help determine what is causing them. I hope this helps!
