Last night I hit the hay early. It was probably 9:45 when I knew I could take it no more and I needed to crash out. My bg was slowly coming down after a mini spike after a low carb dinner so all was well in the diabetes department.
My bedrooom felt stuffy so I opened a window near my side of the bed and turned the ceiling fan on. I need the fan no matter what just for the white noise.
You should also know that I always have blankets on. It can be 100 degrees outside and I will crank the AC and pile on the quilts.
Last night, with the window opened and the fan on, was chilly in our room. I only had the two blankets I usually have on so I was worried I would be too cold. My need for sleep won over my ability to walk back out into the hall to get another blanket so I just went to bed.
I woke up around 12:45AM feeling strange. I turned over and felt cold, no freezing sheets. I realized I was sweating like a crazy low type sweat. Like yoga sweat. Racquetball sweat! Eww. I got up figuring my blood glucose was low but it wasn't. 138 to be exact.
My face, chest, back, stomach, my whole body was dripping with sweat. Normally I am not one to sweat so perfusely so this concerns me.
So what was the deal? The room was cold and I was cold! My wife who is always warm was bundled up and out like a light. It was really strange and gross.
I put a towel down, grabbed some new blankets and went back to bed. This is definitely something I am going to mention to my doctor at my next appointment.
Has this ever happened to you? Do you know why?
