I've been getting night sweats too and I KNOW mine are hormonal. I have been in surgical menopause for ten years (all my reproductive parts are gone) but I am on a hormone replacement patch as I can not function at all without it. When I am stressed (which I have been lately working extra long hours and learning new stuff at work) it throws everything off. I am also on thyroid meds and it is tricky to find a perfect balance between my thyroid meds/hormones and hormone replacement because both work against each other. If I am getting too much of one the other will not work as well. Stress throws it all off balance. Look for other subtle symptoms too. With hormonal imbalance I also lose more hair (chunks, not just strands), get flushes, feel more emotional and sensitive, my joints ache, I feel bouts of nausea.
Regular exercise does help me a bit in regulating hormones, and it helps me relieve stress. I also take hot baths before bed to help warm me, and keep layers of bed sheets on the bed so I have room to adjust to whether I am too hot or cold. I try to wear breathable night clothes. And I try to clear my mind and meditate a little, but most times that doesn't work too well lol.
In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel
