    I sweat at night a lot and the one thing that helps the most is moving. I have to roll from side to side or my back. Its only below my injury and even with rolling all the time I still sweat just not as bad.
    The only thing I have every noticed that takes them away is pain meds. When im dopped up really good my spasms go away and I do not sweat.

      Anytime I'm constipated (which is pretty often these days) I suffer from night sweats. For me a great dump always relieves this symptom.

        The sweats are a symtpom of AD. You should take your BP when they happen to see what is going on.

          since it happens/triggered while i'm asleep ....not sure how i can get BP ...until i awake.

          1. I'm expecting to have sleep study in near future.
          2. When i see my spine dr i'll have HO in hips checked for increased mass as well as x-ray of all bones, legs etc for break.
          3. I see Urologist same day , i'll ask 'bout bladder spasm meds; detrol/ditropan
          4. i see GP i'll get Enemeez, ''what a great find enemeez was here at Rutgers CCC. '' what a moron i am for not using this product sooner..

          i may have to live with these ''sweats'' but i'm not gonna give up trying to solve pblm

              When first injured I used to soak the bed every night from sweat. The doctor gave me some type of high blood pressure medicine, one pill a night, and the sweats stopped after about a year.


              No AD or anything, I just sweated out the back of my neck.

                I have just started getting night sweats myself lately. I have been attributing it to possibly menopause. They're terrible and only from neck up. After reading this thread not so sure anymore if the cause could be menopause. Do you get them every night. Mine are infrequent. Maybe once or twice a week then sometimes I go a few weeks without. I didn't check your profile but I'm a c 5-6 incomplete. I sleep with a fan next to my bed that I operate with a remote control. It really helps. I also keep a bottle of partially frozen water next to me. That helps as well.

                Are you sweating every night or is it infrequent. I did notice your age so apparently it's not menopause. What level are you. I can't give you an answer as to why you're getting them but try a remote fan and some cold water next to you to help give you comfort.

                Hope you get some relief. I know how terrible they can be.

                  cara m , thanks
                  im c7 complete male injured in 1981 (32 yrs ago). Any ''sweating' i have is autonomic ie; if its hot I don't "sweat", no cooling system. That tough here in Texas summer. Very dangerous. A quad can die in a matter of hours due to HEAT. I always carry something (icebag, frozen towels, etc. and cellphone when driving alone or are alone in supreme heat.

                  im 53 and going strong. Except for these AFTER-SLEEP VOID RELATED AUTONOMIC SWEATS AND RECURRING PSEUDOMONAS.

                  Therefore I thank you for ur reply.
                  FOR WHAT ITS WORTH===> A GP Dr. told me that men could have the symptoms of menopause-like sweating. I don't know. Good luck

                      My doctor prescribed Gabapentin while I was in the hospital. I had sweating so bad I could not even slide on a slide board. Thought possible menopausal but I cannot take any hormones. I get it only a few times a month now. More so because the house is warm or my cat finds me to be a nice warm pillow. I found sleeping on a large bath towel helped absorb the moisture off and it was much easier to change a towel verses the sheets and mattress cover. I still use the towel for that reason. My bed is close to the wall so getting the sheets on and off is a bit more difficult. This way I have fresh bedding when I want.
