Cold sweats

HI Louise
Night sweats can be an indication of underlying fever (urine tract infection, TB, lung infections) , certain blood diseases, viral infection, low bloodsugar.
See http://www.medicinenet.com/night_sweats/article.htm
If this is a new symptom, rather let your doctor do a full medical examination to see if he/she can find the cause
