Night sweats? This helped me

I wanted to pass along something that worked for me in dealing with night sweats. I took a and wet hand towel, not dripping wet but fairly wet, placed it on my stomach, placed plastic over that and ten wrapped a dry towel around that. I kept it all in place with the belt on my terry bath robe. I woke up several times to relieve my bladder, which is when I had been waking up with the cold sweats. My wife told me that the idea behind this is to regulate your gut temperature and it worked for me. If you are one of those experiencing night sweats, it might be worth a try.

Tonight is the night... will let you know tomorrow! Should have done it last night, sweat my shirt off! At least it wasn't the entire sheet, like at the beginning!

Thanks for the tip Bayaba! I was especially plagued by night sweats! Also, because I am going through menopause (sorry if that's TMI) I still get them a lot! I bet this may help other women like me as well! I'm gonna try it!
