Night Sweats

My boyrfriend of 6 years sweats. Not during the day but when he sleeps at night. He swears he is cold and wraps himself up tighter when he is literally soaking through the blankets.
Also the sweat does not smell like sweat, it is very potent and rotten smelling. I am having to change everything on the bed every 2 days because I cannot tolerate the smell. He is on anti-depressants, could this be why?
Please help!

Re: Night Sweats

Absolutely, i sweated & had wild dreams on antidepressants. I had to get up in middle of the night to change the sheets!
The smell, i dunno, i know that if you have bad toxins in you from smoking, bad diet or excesive alcohol, it can make your sweat smell worse! or a fungicidal infection can cause this! Get to the doc & he'll take a test to see about the smell.

Re: Night Sweats

One possibility is a disease trasmitted by ticks called Babesiosis. This can cause the sweating and it may be smelly. Does he have any other symptoms?

Re: Night Sweats

His symptoms are are fairly related to his anti-depressants...
No sex drive, night sweats, tired a lot... I am just so tired of trying to sort him out. HE has a doctors appoitnment this weekend, hopefully they will figure something out!
