If you’ve ever tossed and turned through a sweltering summer’s night then you’re most likely familiar with, what most people refer to as, night sweats. In situations like this, the most obvious cause of overheating and discomfort is a lack of adequate air conditioning. However, not all night sweats occur in the summer and not all night sweats are related to hot weather.
Can you imagine waking up in the middle of the night drenched in perspiration when it’s 42 degrees outside? Cancer patients often experience night sweats due to the hormonal changes caused by the drugs which often tip women into menopause early. Men can also experience night sweats due to these hormonal changes and the side effects of the drugs. Fortunately there are nightgowns and pajamas specially designed for people (women and men) who suffer from regular night sweats. Wicking pajamas work to draw moisture away from the body to help provide a cool and dry night’s sleep.
