Hi. Could someone please help me. A couple of months ago, I started having night sweats. Each night I would wake up around 3p.m. and be sweating around my neck, face, breast and chest area and be extremely hot. I did take my temperature at this time and it was normal. Saw the Dr who gave me a blood test. All was normal except that I had iron deficiency anemia. Prescribed iron tablets. Follow up bloods came back normal with anemia going away and iron had risen to normal. Night sweats had also stopped. Fast forward a couple of months, and I have started having night sweats again. Not every night. Sometimes a couple of nights in a row, then nothing for a few nights and then again. I have continued taking iron tablets. I am worrying myself sick as when I google night sweats, lymphoma comes up. Could that be it? Or is it normal for this to happen. I am 43 years old. The only other thing these last couple of weeks I have had tightness in chest and neck area but my upper back is very tense and I have been seeing a chiropractor for this - which has slowly been getting better. Please help, I'm freaking out a little. Thanking you. Deni
