Well, night sweats ( supposing it isn't simply a hot and humid night ) usually indicate a degree of fever, and can have a great many different causes, so a physical checkup might be a good idea there. When one has a fever, for whatever reason, we tend not to sleep too well, and to have vivid dreams.
