| | Night Sweats, and the "cure" I found...
Since 2007, I've had 2 rounds of Lupron Depot injections (I've named the injections "Satan") and a hysterectomy (April 2009), so I've had hot flashes and night sweats ever since. I found the most WONDERFUL thing for my bed, though, and I wanted to share just in case you all don't know about it.
I found a cooling mattress pad for my bed. They're not cheap...this one was $150 full price (I got it for 40%off), but they are worth every penny for sure. I didn't know if I would like it at first, because I'm used to a firmer mattress. But I woke up today and realized I hadn't sweat thru the sheets all the way to the mattress!!! In fact, I didn't sweat at all. It was heavenly!!!
For 3 blooming years I've had to sleep under multiple fans, and have gone so far as to put a fan in an open window while it's 20 degrees outside, just to feel some relief from the sweating!!!
So, there it is. If you've been thru the night sweats as much as I have (every single freaking night!!!), you would appreciate this mattress pad. It's almost like my thermostat has been reset...and it feels so wonderful! Seriously...go get one!
