Night Sweats
Some nights I wake up soaked from sweat ... what would cause this (note exclude alcohol related reasons).

It is more prevalent when I have excercised at 18h00 and gone to bed about 22h00, wake up roughly 01h00 soaked?.

many thanks

Five, the most common cause is an underlying infection, thyroid problems or a hormonal problem, but it might be due to something more sinister. The best would be to see your doctor and have him sort it out for you. Good luck.
