Hi i reccomend going to see a homeopath. a homeopath prescribes on specific symptoms that are unique to us - ie, night sweats, trembling,etc. even though you do feel well - your body is giving you symptoms which you must pay attention to. there is obviously an imbalance going on. homeopaths would see that a miasm (deep inhertited tendency) has been triggered. In this case it is probably a sycotic miasm which manifests an overproduction/ over stimulation. So there is overproduction in the sweat glands and over production in the nervous system (shakes). You will initially see a homeopath once and a remedy will be prescribed. It will be cheaper thatn goinf to lots of doctors for tests, etc. Use the information you have already - ie, your symptoms. That is all you need for a remedy to be prescribed and the imbalance addressed.

If you are looking for a homeopathy only go to a classical homeopath registered - the NCH (national centre of homeopathy) in america have list of accredited practitioners. If you are in a different country I can help you find a reputable one.

Night Sweats are common in diseases such as renal failure and are thought to be caused by hormone or electrolite imbalances. By all means consult a homeopath but dont completely disregard conventional medicine.

I have received a kidney transplant in the last 8 weeks and I was getting very bad night sweats which were caused by low thyroid levels. I reguarly got night sweats when I was on dialysis too. It is a bit of mystery in some people why they happen but get it checked out.

Such things as renal failure or diabetes wont neccessarily make you feel ill in the early stages and even in late stages as sometimes the disease progression is so slow that your body adjusts to it so you simply dont notice. I didn't feel ill even when I was started dialysis but it wasn't until the dialysis started to cleanse my body of the toxins that I realised how ill I had been.

I hope you get the answers you are looking for and Like I said get it checked out by your doctor and/or homeopath. Get the Doctor to run some standard blood/urine tests for chlorestrol, protein or blood in the urine and renal, liver, bone and glucose profiles.

Please feel free to U2U me if you want.

Good luck

I get hot when I sleep too, so I have to make sure my room is cool, and I only use a thin sheet. If I wake up in the middle of the night cold, I'll pull the comforter over me. Clothes, pajamas, etc. will make me sweat. Boxers do just fine.

Also, I used to shake (or vibrate) as well when first laying down. I think it just has something to do with increased blood flow, though it soon slows down.

Btw, I eat a lot of spicey foods, so that might be why, but I really don't think it's something major that you need to go to a doctor for. Just keep cool.

While skitzo could in fact be experiencing some paranomral activity, he seems concerned enough about it to post here. His physical symptoms are interfering with his enjoyment of life.

Unexplained physical conditions should be thoroughly investigated, seems to me. If it is a symptom of something or some disease, it would be good to know.
If a person goes to a MD, DO, homeopathist or whatever, so be it. There's no need to think these posts suggesting medical advice are meant to belittle the Paranormal.

no be-littling....just alot of fear being given to the problem at hand.
Alot of people come here to get the truth and they get alot of BS from the people that can truly help. there are alot of smart people here on this site that can help but they would rather watch then help.... Just sit and watch or DO something with your "smart's".
It is what it is....

He'll probably recommend that you also go to a sleep therapist/sleep lab for testing.

What they teach you in basic psychology at high school in australia, is that when we enter the early, lighter stages of sleep, our muscles begin to lose tension. Since we aren't yet in deep sleep and still slightly aware of reality, we still react to certain external stimuli, like itches, being lightly touched, the wind, etc.. Attempts to move your body while in this state, are usually met with a complete lack of movement. However, occasionally, we can have involuntary 'hypnic jerks', which is where the muscles will have a quick twitch or spasm, resulting in, say, your leg kicking out, or you punching the wall. You have no control over these, and since you are in an altered state of consciousness, you aren't fully aware of reality, so it may feel as though you are moving and twitching seperate of your skin, but that is simply the hypnic jerk twitches of your muscles taking place.
As for the night sweats, VCE psych class students are taught that as we enter deeper stages of sleep, our body's temperature lowers. The temperature that you went to bed in, may have felt comfortable for you as you got into bed, but it may have been too hot for your body as it enters deep sleep, resulting in sweating, which is simply your bodies' attempt to reduce it's temperature.

Please do not waste effort time and money going to a sleep therapist -you will spend a fortune and have to wait a long time for referral......and it is not a sleep problem you have. It is a physical problem which occurs at night.

A sleep therapist will not cure a physical problem, nor will they have the training and expertise to recognise what is going on. This is not a psychological problem (although all illnesses have an overlap of physical / mental /emotional symptoms). Psychology can not treat these symptoms - and it would be totally unadvisable to suggest a sleeep therapist.

Don't trust your doctor. Every truly professional MD will tell you to get a second opinion if you have ANYTHING that you feel has not been 110% explained or looked into. There aren't many doctors with a lot of experience now a days, so get a specialist appointment preferrably. It sucks to die from tiny mistakes by a doctor with only 10 years of professional practice on his back, like my dad who wasn't offered blood-thinning drugs while recooperating from a hip-joint-implant procedure.
Yes, he died from a blood clot initiated heart attack.

If you don't want to end up a vegetable, then DEMAND to have your way.
I never ask anymore, and if I run out of words, I just shut up and look angry or whatever and wait for the other person to surrender and come up with a solution. Works like a charm. Did it latest yesterday, TWICE.

If you want something TAKE IT! Especially when it's your health.

If you get no joy looking for a diagnosis - try the homeopath. It is fine to check with the conventional approach first - but instead of prescribing on your symptoms and curing them, you may end up pillar to post while the docs decide on a label (and then a pharmaceutical) for your complaint. It would do no harm to go down both avenues at once. I am a homeopath and have treated many complaints like yours. It is easily rectified (especially the sweats). You can U2U me if you need anymore information - I would be happy to help.

Agree with you Psyfly, I've nothing against homeopathic medicine although in my case I can't take a lot of herbal medicines as some of them would react with my anti-rejection drugs stopping them working which would not be good ! I know a lot of renal patients who do use homeopaths with very good results but obviously with renal disease it is very specialised so a lot of homeopaths dont know much about it even ending up poisoning the patient as a lot of herb are high in potassium which can be deadly to a renal patient!

I know my own GP very well and he is very good and honest with me also my sonsultants I have been seeing for over 18 years so trust them too. I have come across others who are not so good though!

Just for the record - homeopaths don't use crude herbal doses - so there is NEVER A RISK of poisoning. Herbalism can be risky for renal patients due to drug/herb interaction, and levels of potassium/ sodium in some herbal preparations.

Arnold - if you are in England there are 5 excellent NHS homeopathic hospitals - I think at least 3 have specialised renal clinics which use remedies to help reduce the risk of organ rejection. These are manned by homeopathic consultants with higher training in that field. Good luck and I wish you a complication free and speedy recovery

Yes I have heard of one herb that can boost the immune system which is ok to take with anti-rejection drugs but can't remember what it is? It good to know there are good hemeopaths out there. Of course a lot of drugs are based on extracts from plants so it makes sense that herbal medicines can be extremely effective without some of the nasty side effects pharmaceutical drugs have!

thanks psyfly7 can you post a link that i can look at if someone already did sorry i missed it.

I agree with the poster who said not to start with a sleep therapist first. See what your Doc says about it. If your Doc blows it off, get another Doc. In my case it was sleep apnea. I've had a CPAP machine for about 3 weeks now and sleep great, for about 5 hours a night. I guess I don't need more than that. My headaches have stopped, I'm not falling asleep at my desk, got rid of my blood pressure pills and I've dumped about 30 lbs of fluid that I was retaining. By all means get it checked out. I've gone to two funerals this month and both were heart attacks in people under 40. They felt fine right up until they collapsed.
