Night sweats and freezing cold/ help

Submitted by horses12 on Tue, 2009-08-18 03:45

I woke up at 2 am with severe night sweats and freezing cold. My nerves are shot and this is getting to be to hard for me to do anymore.

Could this just be my hormones? low blood sugar?

It is all a guessing game to our symptoms and reactions. I am going to drink my gaterade  and try to go back to  sleep. Thanks for letting me rant and listening.

I will call my doctor later in the morning.

Freezing cold sounds like endotoxinreaction. Vitamin c helps. Also sweats can be because of body dealing with toxins and porphyria.

Drink a lot of water and take your moppers. Try gluccose for porphyria.

Hope you feel better soon. Best Wishes, Maria

Cpn since sep 2006. Autoimmune thyroid,hypofunction.levaxin,b12+folic acid.All classic cpn,porphyria and toxinsymtoms.Not able to work.Selftreating cpninfection with AllicinMax(garlic), NAC, high vitamin D3. CAP for over 3 years. Back to work and life

I had this same thing happen to me the other night.  Felt a little funny before going to sleep, then woke up and was really hot, not cold like you, but hot, and started sweating.  I drank a bottle of water and sat by the window and let the night air cool me.  I had never had this happen before. 

Eventually, got on-line for an hour to relax and cool down, and then went back to sleep.   I didn't know if it was a herx or a possible break-through. A few days later, nothing much has changed.

Did you ever figure out the cause?  Hope it's gotten better.

I do have night sweats almost every night (even in winter time).

What I've been told is that, as our liver is working harder at nigth, more toxins are being removed and "pushed-out" by sweating. Could it be true?

OK just a comment to explain my lack of a specific comment.  This lack of comment is due to the fact that most of the signatures so far in this thread, are out of date  for your present situations. 

To give specific feedback to a specific question,  I look at signatures and then I look at the question through the facts of what I think I may have learned on the topic and then I take a few chances with answers that fit the situations.

Unclear situations leads to responses that lack any potential value or accuracy from my perspective.   So just some rationale for keeping your signatures current may get you the feedback that you want.  For me if I cannot see what the treatment situation is I often just past the question by.  It makes more sense to me to handle lack of information with lack of answ. An assumption made regarding someones treatment details, leads to at best, poor answers that don't really fit your situation.  Just my humble opinion.  Louise

Louise, I agree to my signiture needing a face lift. Thank you all for posting with your your feedback.

started Wheldon cap 4/21/08 for Cpn, CMV, EBV, CFS. Cap hold 4/09vascultis. Restart 9/09 with Dr.Powell, restore gut, 4000 D3, supplements,  Pos. Bartonella and Babesia, Rifampin 600 mgs and Biaxon 1 gram. 

Bonnie of course you are not alone in this one and I am not singling you out.  Acutally I think I know more about your situation than some here.  How long have you been back on Doxy 100 if it has been long enough you may be getting some die off from a bacterial load even at that dose given enough time and the right bacteria.  So it is something to consider.   Early on I had similar hot and cold and it was during a time of high July heat!!!  And of course the transition of hormones in mid-life can take 10 years I have read before the actual cessation of cycling etc.   I could go on but you see my perspective.

What have you been given to support sleep?  Anything?  Do you neutraceuticals and or herbals for sleep assistance.   Does your partner disturb your sleep, animals, traffic, neighbors the list goes on of course.   Questioning is one of my blessings or challenges depending on your perspectiveImage removed..

I so believe that you will get through this and onto a more stable life experience.  We are all works in progress.

Blessings, Louise

Thank you Louise, and everyone for being so helpful in caring during my treatment. I am normaly not a whimp and all who go through this nightmare must have a tough skin.

I was progressing well on the cap until my vascular issues and my doctor had me stop everyting until it was under control. Now that I am trying to go forward, it has been a lot harder with endotoxins and prophyria. My system is taxed to it's limits but I am trying to push forward.

I'm looking into my hormone situation and waiting for results. I feel like my thyroid is out of whack and maybe the cause to many of my problems.

I am taking something to help me sleep at night and it seems to be working. The mornings are what bring me a challenge with the dry heeves and weakness.

Reading others progress keeps me focused and leads me along the path to a cure. It can bring light to a lonely darkness and hope when one feels like giving up.

Bonnie, you certainly are not a wimp.  You been with so many ill folks in your life that your are likely long suffering and perhaps like myself suffered long before getting so low that you finally sought care! One who put everyone else in your world before yourself. 

I resisted for so long because I thought that I either had a terminal illness and was on my way with nothing to be done (I am familiar with dramatic interventive care and the outcomes of many of the efforts or maybe worse from my point of view, I would be called a mental condition and having worked there I did not want that label in my files forever and did not want those meds. 

Are your female hormones out of wack too?  Just a consideration that has helped me, just one of my steps to everyday functioning.  And the reverse T3 issue is a potental real one and not recognized by much of the allopathic community.  Tests can look normal just not the right tests done to determine the imbalance.  Again another piece of the balance puzzle for some.

Dry heeves and weakness.  First time I get it that this is part of your situation.   May have been spoken before but I did not get it.   Miserable.   Dry heeves even in the midst of my morning weakness and nausea I had not gone there.   I did have to run to eat upon awakening and eat even if nausea present with the weakness.   This does not speak to cause and effect just a way that I delt with the symptom for myself.  For years I thought it was low blood sugar.  Little did I know about the ATP (energy parasitic nature of CPn) with which I was surely overloaded.  And think of all those chronic lung patients you served so faithfully with your caring treatments and the exposure level to what likely was an ocean of microbes just hoping for the chance to get into your system to propagate themsleves and there is such a selection, such a variety of these brilliant microbe oportunisitc infective organisms and you in particular with your service were a prime candidate and maybe because of your genetics the perfect candiate (like some of us).   

You are doing a good job a sorting this out for yourself and with the help of qualified providers.   None of them can be all things to all patients or the thing in any one moment but it ebbs and flows.  Keep on going back to the ones that have helped with this or that.  Get another for this or that aspect.  I stilll believe in our capacity for wellness.   We are the lucky ones we have a chance at improvement hold onto the hopefulness, it keeps us headed in the healing direction.  

Should I get off the soap box now Image removed. ?

You have my sympathy and my empathy.  You are not a wimp - if we were, we wouldn't be here and doing this.  No true wimp could handle a day of it.

The sweating, the aches, the toxic feeling that is part of getting through the day, is a way of life for us, I think.  No one who has not been here can "get it".

The big part - to my surprise and delight - is what I have discovered.  After several eternities, you realize one day that something is better.  There is a tiny thing that you can do, or a thing that works a little better than it did,or....You may miss it, or it may regress and you realize only then that it happened, but I bet it will happen. 

I am thrilled to say I have a very long list of these and they have accumulated into a mass that gets me through my latest six-month ordeal which is now halfway over.  Stay with us.

3/9 Symptoms returning. Began 5 abx protocol 5/9 Rifampin 600, Amox 1000, Doxy 200, MWF Azith 250, flagyl 1000 daily. Began Sept 04 PPMS EDSS 6.7 Now good days EDSS 1 Mind, like parachute, work only when open. Charlie Chan  In for the duration.&am

I didn't have the sweats when I started abx but I did have the freezing episodes so severe that sitting in a closed car in the AZ summer sun would not even have warmed me. Benicar eleviated that symptom for some reason. It made a huge difference!

Bonnie, I hope we will hear how you are doing soon and the results of your phone call to your doctor.   Thinking of you in this time of distress.  Louise
