Sweats after night shifts

  1. Anyone else experience this after nights? I only did the one night shift this week, but I'm sat here with sweat pouring out of me! Always happens after nights..if I'd been on day shift I'd be fine! Anyone know the physiology behind this?

    well, i'm not sure about the sweat but i do know that the feeling of suddenly being cold in the middle of a night shift is due to circadian rhythms... maybe the sweat has something to do with it also?

    Agreed with above poster. I also am freezing cold at night and sweating when I get home.Very odd.
