I'm a 22 year old male and for two nights in a row now, I have had excess night sweats that completely drench my pillow and sheets. The first night, I thought they were due to a caffeine pill I took(used for energy and working out) and it was the first time I had taken it in about 6 months.

But, last night I woke up after sleeping for two hours as I sweating (although no where near as excessively, but still soaked half of my pillow) and I went back to bed and didn't have any issues for the rest of the night.

I will say that it the sweats from last night are possibly due to stress from worrying about whether or not it was going to occur again and I woke up 3-4 times last night. I keep my room at 65 degrees, as I do every night, so that can't be the cause.

I don't have health insurance, so I certainly don't want to see a doctor unless I'm in excruciating pain. I don't have any ailments during the day (no fever, fatigue, no abnormal weight loss, etc.) So I'm not sure what to think.

What is your weight like? I've heard this can be a symptom of diabetes and younger people are getting it.

I mean I'm within 20-30 pounds of being a normal weight. I definitely wouldn't say I'm morbidly obese or anything close.

I've looked through the list for symptoms of diabetes (both 1 and 2) and I didn't see anything other than "sweating" that I have been experiencing. I've no issues with weight loss (or gain for that matter), thirstiness, slow healing wounds, etc.

I called a nurse at a local hospital and she suggested that it was those fat burning pills I took are designed to raise my temperature and therefore probably causes the bad night that I had. She said last night was probably due to anxiety from thinking that it could be serious. She said if it happens again tonight or tomorrow to make an appointment.
