Night sweats at 23 years old, and sleep paralysis
I am 23 years old. I have no idea what's going on with me and I don't know where to post this so I guess here is the best place. I've gained 10 pounds (I was 120-125)
Twice this week I woke up after having nightsweats. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night hot, I just woke up the next morning covered in water. Literally covered. When I went to bed the next night, the mattress was still wet and my clothes were soaked.
Once this week (not on a nightsweat night) I woke up around 2 or 3 in the morning with uncontrollable stomach pain. It was like menstrual cramping except spread out more. I literally rolled around in bed moaning for 1-2 hours barely drifting to sleep and then waking back up again. I thought I had food poisoning. I never got sick though- never had diarrhea or vomiting. My stomach continued to hurt the next day and it is less than a week later and it still bothers me some.
On yet another day, I had predormital sleep paralysis with auditory hallucinations which was the most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me, but I feel like that just happened to be an isolated incident.
It seems like all my weight has gone to my gut. When I stand relaxed in front of the mirror it looks like I'm 4 or 5 months pregnant. This has all gone on in the past week (except the pregnant belly has been around for 2-3 weeks)
I am very tired no matter how much I sleep. For instance, I took a 3 hour nap today and am still exhausted. Some body pain too, especially the right side of my neck and shoulder blade
