Night sweats last for weeks, go AWAY for weeks!

Anyone experience this? It is driving me crazy, the unpredictability of these sweats. Mostly at night, but sometimes no sweats at all..and then boom! I have weeks of being drenched. Also, how does alcohol affect night sweats, make them worse?

Re: Night sweats last for weeks, go AWAY for weeks!

yes, I had this many times over the past two years. They seem to go in cycles. At first, I thought "Oh good, they are over," but I soon realized that it was just part of a cycle that went on for two years. It seemed to occur every couple weeks so I related it to hormone changes. Now, I have them mostly during the day but not a lot, only when I get overheated or upset. Yes, alcohol can make them worse.

Thanks. I'm not much of an alcohol drinker but I had so much anxiety the other day (out of the blue) that I had 2 (small) drinks. Wow, did it make my night sweats worse. So I'm also learning the hard way.
