Night sweats are often due to fever which means some illness . This requires a good check up by an internist to find the cause.

Some autoinflammatory diseases, like the periodic fever syndromes (eg FMF) involve night sweats. These may be better defined as dysregulated immunity rather than autoimmunity. Infection and malignancy are far more common causes.
