Just wondering if anyone else experiences night sweats with their Crohn's? I had excessive sweats for months where I had to change my sheets during the night, they stopped for a few months but seem to be reoccurring.

      My sweats stopped when I first started taking prednisolone! I was weaned down to 10 mg before I got an infection and was put back onto 40 mg and now the sweats have started again.

    Yes I had them very badly and then they ease off.  I may be wrong but I think it is linked to fighting infection because I felt as if I had a cold but didn't have the runny nose etc.

    I found the best way to cope with night sweats was take a towel and when they wake you up you can soon dry yourself off.  You need spare pillows and it does mess with your hair.
