In brief: NIGHT SWEATS
Decreasing estrogen levels create the vasomotor symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats.

In brief: We don't know
We believe night sweats and hot flashes occur in post menopausal women as a result of interactions of the nervous system with the vascular system in estrogen deficient women.
These symptoms are more prevalent in african-american women, obese women, and smokers.
