Manny times after taking a nap on the couch in the family room, I will wake up covered in sweat. This only happens when I actually fall asleep on the couch. If I’m just lying or sitting there watching TV, or even moving around cleaning the place, I’m perspiration-free. Also, I can sleep in my bedroom without breaking a sweat, but it’s about 4 degrees cooler there. Any ideas as to why I would sweat while taking a nap? Seems like I should be least likely to sweat while snoozing, but that just ain’t the case.
WARNING: WAG FOLLOWS:
I have an appointment with a cardiologist in a couple of weeks. There is a good possibility that I’ll be diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse, which, while benign, is characteristic of dysautomnia, a mis-wiring of the autonomous nervous system. That being said, I wonder if nap sweat is just another symptom of dysautomnia.
