Night sweats?

I've had a pretty bad cold now for about a week and half. Mainly a bad cough. For the last two nights I had drenching night sweats. I seem to feel better now. Is this something I should be worried about or did i just have a fever that finally broke?

Re: Night sweats?

I feel better but the night sweats still have me freaked out. Everytime you ****** night sweats you only see bad diseases. you never see common cold, or even flu.

Has anyone had a fever induced night sweats for a couple days from simply a bad cold, or viral or bacterial infection?

Re: Night sweats?

night sweats can come when you spike a fever at night...but i dont think its really common with colds. i would see your doc.

Re: Night sweats?

I get fevers with colds. That isn't unusual for me. My husband goes through periods of sweating at night, we have to change him and the sheets. He's perfectly healthy. I think he over heats and doesn't wake up like I do and stick a foot out or something to cool down. It really doesn't sound like something to worry about at this point. Naturally if it is continues rountinely or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor about it for sure.
