There are just so many things that people do not know about fibromyalgia. One of the most mystifying mysteries about the condition is in the way that it affects your body, as well as your body’s internal body temperature. Cold temperature can worsen your fibromyalgia symptoms, at the same time, getting overheated can also affect your symptoms. Regulating your body’s internal temperature can be hard and this is why people with fibromyalgia tend to suffer from night sweats.
What Causes Night Sweats In Fibromyalgia
In general, there are many things that could trigger night sweats. These triggers usually result in the fluctuation of your body’s internal temperature. One of the most common reasons why people suffer from hot flashes is the hormonal changes due to menopause. However, if you have fibromyalgia, you have higher chances of getting night sweats. Unlike night sweats in menopause, night sweats in fibromyalgia is not caused by hormonal changes. The main cause of night sweat in people who have fibromyalgia is usually the body’s inability to regulate its internal temperature.
Nonetheless, it still unclear why night sweats are so prevalent in those with fibromyalgia. One theory suggest that fibromyalgia may affect certain mechanisms of the body that regulate temperature, such as the thyroid glands’ activities.
