Night sweats: Night Sweats are characterized by sweating so profusely that bed clothes are damp. Small-Fibre Neuropathy involves sweating in unusual areas along with Itching, burning, numbness and tingling of the skin. Either of these can be a sign of environmental problems, hormonal imbalance, infection, diabetes, thyroid problem or even cancer. See a Dr for a full physical exam and testing.
