Night Sweats and Crohns

My husband has had CD for 12 years. He is having a time with flare ups in past several months. He is experiencing night sweats as well. Some nights it just soaks the bed. Are there any of you who also experience this?

Hi Anonymous
Thank you for your comments. Night sweats are just part of the package with Crohns. Inevitable I believe. I have been off Imuran now for three months without flare ups. Maybe it has burned out.

I was diagnosed December 16th with Chronic Myelomonisitic Leukemia (CMML). Has anyone else had this diagnosis. My history started with elevated monocites (part of white blood cells). My coumt was over 5000 amd the normal range is 200 to 950. Crohns often causes elevated monocites accompanied with iron deficient anemia.
A bone marrow biopsy pathology showed the leukemia.

I was extremely sick before hospitalization in December, but feel very good now with my energy back. Yeah!! The chemo that is very specific for this type leukemia is called Vidaza. It requires an injection five days in a row every three weeks. No loss of hair or emesis because of an antinausea med, but severe constipation is the result of the chemo. Be aware.

sweat & burn out
by: Anonymous

Main topic reply- sweating. I also get bed drenching sweats. Actually since I've had crohns I sweat far more than what was previously considered my "usual". Just sitting there in the morning eating some eggs, BAM... the common sweat spots running like a fkn faucet.

Burn out-
My doc suggested that as a possibility as well. He said the goal is to get me off all meds and that diseases can in fact "burn out". Not that crohns necessarily can or will, but that it is possible.

Night Sweats, Crohns and more

Hi Anonymous. I really feel for you. Flaare ups are miserable.

I have been in remission from flare ups, diarrhea, etc. for 5 years, but have continued to have night sweats occasionally. If I have taken a pain med, it seems to happen, but I run a low grade fever at times. When I have an active infection, I really have night sweats.

Have any of you had a problem with various infections? I have finally, after 5 years, been weened off Azathioprine (Imuran) and after two months have had no flare up. It takes from 5 to 6 months for Aza to really be effective and I'm hoping after 6 months I don't get a return of diarrhea.

I have had multiple skin cancers including two melanomas since Aza. This drug is very strong. Just be aware.

I was diagnosed with Chronic Myelomonocitic Leukemia (CMML) just before Christmas. Crohns can cause elevated Monocytes. Azathioprine does effect red blood cell production in the bone morrow. If anyone is interested I'll explain the chemo I'm getting. It is specific for CMML.

Hi. Yes I had severe night sweats also and would soke the bed. This was all during a severe flare up of my Crohns, with fevers for about a month. After several hospital stays and an illeostomy I have not had the night sweats since. He may want to follow up with his doctor soon.

Burn out of Crohns
by: Della

Hi all

Thanks for comments and encouragement Vanessa and anonymous. Not to change the subject, but....my GI Doctor really shocked me recently when I told him my Imuran dose had been reduced down to 25mg. He said wouldn't it be something if your Crohns has burned out. Couldn't find anything on line except a book written by 4 doctors. Cost was $35, so I haven't ordered yet. Please let me know if you've heard anything about Crohns burning out. Not to be confused with burning out because you have Crohns. That's easy. Crohns burning is a very good thing.

Hi. I was diagnosed late with Crohns at 65. What a surprise that was. I too went through all the pain, diarrhea, fever and night sweats. I am in remission now three years after prednisone and immunesuppressant Azathioprine.

The night sweats went away after remission and I'm well past menopause (71). So the inflammatory process with vague fevers must linger. The night sweats are back recently. I did have the flu last month and it could have
triggered the sweats.

When fever breaks during the night, sweats are the result. Fever may be low-grade (100-101F) or
as high as l03-104F. High fevers require contacting the doctor for something more serious.

A caution for those taking Azathioprine (Imuran) because of the big increase of skin cancers. I have had two melanomas, numerous basel and squamous cell cancers (5 or 6 a month).

Hope my experience helps with some questions you've had.
