Sweating on one half on my body
When I go to bed at night, I lay down on one side and after couple of minutes I start sweating only on the top half of my body. If I turn around on the other side, sweating moves back to the top half. If I'm on my back or stomach, sweating doesn't appear. Please, is there any explanation for this. It lasts couple of months every night. Thank you.

Well, I never heard of the 'top half' thing. But night sweats are a common symptom of both hyper and hypo thyroid issues. When meds are at proper levels with the right thyroid med that YOUR body needs, this and other symptoms should go away.

Once again, I am reminded of being outnumbered.  Where else could a guy be surrounded by so many ladies and not get kicked out (yet)?

What the few of us men here need is, a list of what menopause doesn't cause so we can just steer clear of these questions altogether!

LOL !

I'm surprised (and a bit relieved) to see I'm not the only one with this 'sweating on 1/2 the body - only the "up" side' syndrome.  

Does anyone have any information on this? Any links/topics/clues would be appreciated
