Hi, have the same, don’t see any patterns that would drive that. Sometime I can wake up terrified (no idea why, no bad dream or anything) very disoriented and my pj is soaking wet. I wish I could tell you why but in the same boat as you.

I have that problem but I'm peri-menopausal. I can't take hrt as I take warfarin. I did some research and found that sage is good. I've been taking sage tablets for a while and it has helped me incredibly. You could also take it as a tea. Hope this is useful.

Hi, I'm 52! The product I take is Menoforce by A Vogel. I had to do something because of the sweats I was completely exhausted as they were waking me up so often.

Perimenopause can start as early as your thirties. Mine started in my early 40's and is lasting forever. I'm 51 and still have not gone through menopause. Perimenopause can cause night sweats.

I've had night sweats on and off since my early 20's. Apparently a hormonal thing. Never did get it figured out, but haven't had them for awhile now. I'd discuss with your gynecologist.

Night sweats can be a symptom of low/ underactive thyroid. I had them off and on for 10 years from my mid thirties and they completely stopped once I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. I’d encourage you to get yours checked.

I had hot flushes day & night for 6 years before starting HRT. Medicinal herbs helped a lot, though it's a bit of a hit & miss approach unless you see a qualified medical herbalist who can prescribe based on symptoms.

My herbalist friend found changing her diet to cut out sugar, processed food & alcohol helped reduce the severity of her hot flushes naturally, though she took herbs, too.

OTC preparations might help, but be aware they can cause adverse effects if not taken appropriately, just like any medication.
