Why do I sweat at night? Part 1
In the period of the onset of evolution in the event of danger, our body reacted like a call to action - "Beat and flee" - while not only narrows, but also breathing increased, and pupils expanded.
Because of the action of very strong nerve impulses inThe body was very sweaty. Why? With the help of sweaty palms it was easier to hide from the enemy, grabbing at the rough branches. Thanks to perspiration, the force of friction increased, so the feet were densely placed on the stone ledges, they did not slip, so the ancestors could escape from danger.
Today, we do not need to hide from predators on trees, we do not often use large branches or stones for a protection tool, but we continue to sweat in a situation of emotional or physical stress.
What do others notice?
People who do not have problems with the allocation of sweat,Sometimes they do not understand and even condemn people whose clothes become wet at one point. But this is still quite a common situation, but when a person sweat flows through the body, it even turns away most people.
Severe shedding - hyperhidrosis - isThe effect of disrupting the work of the sympathetic nervous system (it increases heart rate, nutrient intake and increases breathing), but there are no specific reasons that can recall such an organism reaction, or rather, it has not yet been found.
If you start sweating a lot without some kind ofVisible external stimuli, so we are talking about the primary hyperhidrosis. As a rule, from the very first days a person knows this condition and already resigns himself to the fact that he has excessive fatigue, moreover, somehow learn with it, so he does not seek professional help from a specialist.
Before, you never sufferedIncreased fatigue, and now almost every night you wake up because of this? Then you need to think and remember: how long do you feel discomfort, and because of what night sweats could appear?
The reason is that secondary hyperhidrosis canBe a sign of a very serious illness or because of emotional fatigue, which is caused by a prolonged stressful situation, perhaps this is the usual reaction of the body to new medications that you take out not so long ago.
After you understand the reason and cureailment, through the fault of which you suffer at night, this problem will disappear, so it happens most often. However, it should be noted that it is important not only to cure the disease, but also to protect oneself from complications, and for this it is not necessary to engage in self-treatment and self-diagnosis, it is better to turn to a qualified doctor in time.

We do not win, but we accept?
Very often a woman will fall asleep at night in the periodMenopause is one of the most common causes. As a rule, menopause occurs after 45 years and moreover, it is not something supernatural, it is a natural change, so it should be in the female body. The ovaries practically cease to work, they do not produce progesterone estrogen. Because of hormonal changes, serious problems may arise in the operation of the hypothalamus. It is such a small department of the brain that controls virtually all the functions that take place in the body.
For example, temperature, behavior, sleep,emotions and appetite. When there are few estrogens in the body, he connects this violation with a decrease in the temperature of the body and, as a result, increases it to achieve a hormonal and thermal balance. Because of this during menopause, the woman feels hot flushes (heat that usually spreads throughout the body), which cause a lot of sweating.
Very often menopausepsychological and emotional disorders, especially comfort, who are very keen to end the childbearing period. The female organism is so arranged that at first we suspend, then we give birth to children, and the reproductive system dies away. This is a completely normal natural process, so do not dramatize and panic in advance, it is better to immediately ease your condition by contacting a specialist.
If before the onset of menopause is still far away, howeveryou begin to notice that her symptoms appear (lack of gesture, night sweats, hot flushes, vaginal dryness, irregularity, decreased sexual activity), then perhaps we are talking about preterm menopause. There are several reasons for this appearance of the climax. For example, the genetic characteristics of the body, ovarian damage after chemotherapy or the consequence of surgical intervention.
Hormones can be produced to a lesser extent bycauses the destruction of the work of other bodies. Therefore, together with premature menopause, osteoporosis (fragility, brittle bones) or diseases of the cardiovascular system is very often hand in hand. Naturally, not all women spontaneously begin to lose bone mass or suffer from heart disease, but the way of life of a woman is directly related to the development of side diseases and a feeling of discomfort. Lack of pregnancy, smoking, drinking alcohol, monotonous and unhealthy food, constant stressful situations lead to the fact that the body is depleted before the time and can not cope with hormonal changes in the body. Because of this, the usual natural physiological period in a woman's life - menopause - proceeds quite heavily along with neochen pleasant symptoms.
