You'll likely be fine until you see the doctor.  Some medications can cause night sweats.  I started having really bad ones due to some medication and then due to menopause.  I don't know if it only works for menopause but I've been using an all-natural product called i-cool and it's helped tremendously.

Underlying fevers can also cause them and if your UTI isn't totally gone, it could be because of that.

Not sure about that med.  Call the pharmacist; they really know everything about meds and side effects.

Usually you would know if you have pneumonia.  Even if you weren't coughing, you'd be likely exhausted, have fevers, etc.  Though my 13-year old daughter had it in February and we were sort of stunned as she didn't have any symptoms.

Your CT scan would show different things but whatever it was ordered for is where they'll pay most attention.  Sometimes other things are caught incidentally.

I'm far from a hypochondriac but I tend to over worry things and I seem to pay too much attention to things.  And having a medical background that gives me just enough knowledge to panic but not enough to not worry ... therapy would probably go a long way in helping you with the hypochondria.
