I know I have kind of asked this question before, but if it applies to you please let me know! :) Does anyone feel like their pain is worse at night, or it comes on during the night? Do you have night sweats during the night too? Thanks for any info!!

" I have similar symptoms...although the sweats are fairly mild they are still annoying! The pain can wake me, thats when I relize my pillow or sheets are damp from sweating. I live in Palm Springs and its not even in the 80's yet..cant wait for summer this year! lol

If you find out the cause...let us know?

" Yes I get my pain worse in the middle of the night. I also noticed that just before I have an attack either during the day or at night I sweat a lot. I don't know why this happens, I did mention it to my doctors, they didn't say anything about it., I know that last summer when it was very hot I had trouble with pain too. Hope this help. "

" My pain is always worse at night....about 50% worse so I take a hot water bottle to bed which helps somewhat along with the meds. I spend most nights awake though and it screws me up totally the next day cos I catnap and then I have no routine I can stick too.

I also get terrible nightsweats. I am 45 so don't know if it is menopause coming on...but asked the specialists who seem to think I am too young for it to be that (????) Anyway, they put it down to Efexor which I take for depression which is notorious for the sweats. It could be a med you are on but I tend to think it is also related to the CP cos when I have acute attacks, I am always sweating like mad. I am interested to see if other ppl get this also.

Take Care "

" I also have more pain at night and some night sweats. ViolaBow - it is funny that you said you were told that effexor can cause sweats because my GYN doctor put me on Effexor to help with menopause sweats. I cannot take hormones because I had a blood clot go to each lung one time after breaking my leg and they will not allow you to take hormones once you have had a blood clot. He said that Effexor had been proven to help with hot flashes and it really has helped a lot during the day. I never have them and my twin sister suffers with them all the time. Anyway I tend to think that the sweats go hand-and-hand with the CP. "

" Night time is hell for me. Its probable been four months since the last time I sleept at at night for more than twenty minutes. As for the sweating, it's gotten really bad here in the last couple months, so I'm constanlty wearing a bandana and what not. As for the cause of the pain at night, it only makes sense because it is at that point in time that you have everything that you ate, drank and all activity coming together then. When my illness was not as severe as it is now, I could feel everything comeing together begining around 2130 - 2200. But, I could still manage to sleep with the aid of Ambien CR and PO meds. Now that I'm far more advanced, nothing I do makes a difference, hardly even the drugs any more, so I have to sleep when my body is totally drained from not eating for 36 to 48 hours. Even at that, I can not and have not been able to lay down with the intent of going to sleep (like a normal person) in ages. I hope that you all are not where I am at and that you are all able to sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time every 18 hours. Hugs and prayers to all. . . "

" Often times I feel less pain if I can lay down. But after laying down all night I start hurting. I also get sweety episodes in the day and night. They cause me to have what I call hot and cold flashes.

The weird sweety episodes happen often. Im to young for menopause so I know it isnt that, "

" Pain for me is alwyas worse at night and morning and there is nothing there to distract me. I remember hearing that the pancreatic enzymes can cause sweats but I also wonder if it is the quantity of pain meds I am on. "

" I have pain at night while I'm sleeping it can wake me up too.
The sweats I have but it could be a lot of reasons since I had those for years now. I have a heart condition too. Or change of life. And yes we live in AZ and it's 100 right now.

Also why Sunday night? My husband thinks I have something going with Sunday night...we in the last of the 3 weeks gone to the ER on Sunday night. lol just a note. BAD pains! "

" I do not know if it gets worse for me at night or not. Sometimes I wake up with the slightest tinge of nausea, but not enough to make me vomit. I might also wake up with a slightly distended stomach. For sure, in the morning I always wake up with gas, which upon expelling it makes me feel better. Sorry to be so graphic, but it is my routine.

For me, actually, afternoons are the worst. It could be the demands of the job I have, I am not sure. I sometimes find that a 15-minute lie-down will really help me reset things. I also find that when I need to rock my baby girl to sleep that it also helps calm me down, too. Funny how that works out. "
