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.

I don't know what's cuasing the problem! sweating on the opposite side of the sleeping side! i also have it accompanied by cold and it happens especially when there's air flowing through the room, when i turn to sleep on back or stomach, the sweating stops! it's just so weird! i'm a male by the way, 29 of age
