It is a long post but I plea with you to bear with me...
Ok so I moved into my dorm room about 3 weeks ago and I sleep in a room that tends to get pretty warm and is hard to cool down. Over the course of late last week and the weekend it was unbelievably warm and being on the top bunk my fan is positioned in a way where it cant fully reach my body on full blast as well as it could if I were on a lower bunk. So obviously I was a little damp during the weekend nights around the edges of my hair and underwear and would wake up with a little bit of moisture on my chest or back of the legs. But last night I woke up at 5 am and I had my sheet on up to my waist and my legs were soaked as were my boxers. However what I found weird is that it was a little warm but not too bad, and what seemed weirder to me is the fact that as soon as soon as I threw off the covers and got up to go to the bathroom within a minute the sweat had pretty much evaporated from my legs and my boxers no longer were very damp. My sheet was mildly damp where the legs were. Now I may be acting paranoid here and if so forgive me but I dont ever recall waking up like that. So given a relatively warm room and the fact I sleep on the top bunk with partial acess to a fan do you think my legs were just overheated? By the way my sheets are 65% polyester, 35 cotton if that makes a difference. Im sorry If this is just a parnoid plea but any responses a greatly, greatly appreciated as soon as possible.

Re: Sweating

A single bout of sweating is not indicative of anything. A stressful sleep, nightmares, what you have to eat or drink that day(esp spicy food, alcohol) all can lead to waking up in a sweat. I wouldn't say it is paranoia but waking up in a sweat is a common circumstance of utterly healthy people

Re: Sweating

given the fact that heat rises and you are on the top bunk on mostly polyester sheets its no surprise you would sweat on a warm night

cheers Myth
