Just wondering if any other fellow UC’ers experience night sweats with their flares?
I never sweat, really, I don’t…I used to be VERY active “pre-UC” and don’t ever remember sweating much. Even when running, doing other cardio, playing sports, etc. Over the past few years I’ve noticed some major night sweats come and go, particularly during flares. I am in a pretty bad flare right now and I’ve been waking up once or twice each night drenched! (sorry if you think it’s gross…my husband thinks so!) I literally have to wake up, change clothes and put towels under me when sleeping! Very strange. I’ll mention it to my doctor but I was just wondering if anyone else experiences this. I’ve had my thyroid checked and that’s fine. I’m only 32, so I doubt it’s menopause. I haven’t changed meds recently and it’s been happening only this past week or so. FYI- I’m on sulfasalizine, methotrexate, mesalamine, and a bunch of otc supplements-vitamins. Just wanna see if colitis may be the cause.
Hi there! My name is Angie. I am 34, happily married and have 3 young children. I suffer from severe UC and have many “extraintestinal manifestations” related to my IBD.
