See response below: Night sweats can happen with disease activity/flare or infections, you need to check your temperatures and keep a diary and tell your rheumatologist , if it only happened once, you do not need to worry about it. Females can have thyroid problems which lead to heat/cold intolerance, patients need at least annual thyroid testing.
