In brief: Find the cause first

If you are in general good health and has been evaluated already by your doc and nothing found, then you may have a genetically inherited condition called sleep hyperhidrosis.
.This often occurs in early adulthood. Menopausal syndrome is very common also after 40... For sleep hydrosis, trial of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 50-100mg before bed may help...If not, consult doc for other treatment options... Good luck.

In brief: Hormone therapy

Night sweats: there are many potential causes to sweating at night.
The term night sweats generally refers to excessive sweating at night related to a hormone imbalance. There is no one answer to explain the origin of sweating at night. Some common causes are: infection, some cancers, several medications, low blood sugars and a host of other less common reasons. Were going to focus in on the hormone imbalance commonly seen in menopause, although by no means limited to menopause. We have seen a common night sweats picture in the men with prostate cancer with elevated estrogen levels. Swelling often starts around your neck. Everyone has a different body odor. The smell could be related to your diet your soap etc. We generally start with saliva testing which allows us to identify what the hormone imbalance actually is and treat accordingly. When we don't start with saliva testing we very often get very good success with progesterone cream in the form of wild yam cream. There are many different preparations of wild yam cream on the market and often the preparation does not have enough progesterone cream to be effective. The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy.
