head/face sweats while sleeping

I have recently, about 2 months now started sweating profusely as I sleep it continually wakes me. My hole head/hair, top of shirt and pillow will be drenched. I awaken, wipe the puddles out of my eyes, flip pillow go back to sleep....this happens at least 4 times a night. I am 42, female, being medicated for bi-polar, anxiety and restless leg syndrome. My body does not sweat at all just my head/face. Should I be concerned? I briefed my dr., she shrugged it off.

Because this is not insomnia, your doctor will need to address this question.
