    Question Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

    Ok hear is my question. I hear alot of people here on WHL mention hot flashes and night sweats which I have both. I always thought it was my menopause but if so I have been doing it a very very long time. But what i want to know is this part of my Lupus? And how many of you go through these hot flashes and nigt sweats?

    Yes, I spend every night alternating between freezing and being drenched in sweat. I'm 53, so I don't know how much is peri-menopause, how much is from the AI disease or how much is from that blasted Tempurpedic foam that my husband put on the bed for his bad back - he loves it and I hate it.
    I can predict the times that I will wake up - always between 90 minutes and 2 hours after I go to sleep. I've read that 90 minutes is a normal sleep cycle, so I wake up between each cycle and stay awake at least a half hour each time.
    This is no way to get a night's rest!
    Hugs,

    Hello - Do you think it is the prednisone? I think mine are personally,, and I think others may have commented on this in the past. I woke right up from them the other night and it was awful!

    I think mine may be the steroids as well as gaining weight. As I said I don't have hot flashes but I STAY hot. During the winter we didn't have our heat come on unless it got below 50! Thank goodness my daughter likes it cold as well
