Night Sweets

Cape Town has general mild evenings at the moment, but for a while now, almost every night I have been waking up drencheed in sweet from my neck down my chest areas. Is this normal, I feel absolutely fine except insomnia.

Hallo Voetjies
How old are you? - it could be due to hot flushes if you are around 50 years of age. Other reasons of night sweats are TB, some blood cancers, low blood sugar or hormonal problems.
