The Cause Of Night Sweats In HIV Sufferers Taking ARV Drugs?
Good night. I want to ask. Why am I sweating at night? I have been living with HIV for 2 years, does it have ARV effects?
Thank you for the question.
Excessive sweating at night is naturally experienced by sufferers of infectious diseases, including HIV. This condition occurs because the body's metabolism increases in warding off viral or bacterial infections that enter the body. Other factors, such as excessive physical activity, drug side effects, hot environmental conditions, excessive stress or anxiety, to other illnesses (such as heart problems, hormonal disorders, anemia, hypoglycemia, hypotension, immunity disorders) can also contribute to aggravating this complaint .
If you have been taking medication regularly according to the doctor's advice, and if you have also not experienced other more severe complaints (for example fever, weakness, palpitations, dizziness, blurred vision, diarrhea, fatigue, pale, chest pain, etc.) this condition can often be treated first by:
Get plenty of rest Regular bath Wear clothes that are cool in material and absorb sweat Condition the environment around you so that both ventilation and air circulation Stay away from excessive stress and anxiety Do not take any drugs, other than those given by the doctor Live a healthy lifestyle, including with routine exercise, sleep and wake up regularly, stay away from cigarettes, do not consume alcohol It does not hurt you to see your doctor or doctor of internal medicine if you feel the complaint is very disturbing, or if other complaints appear more severe as already mentioned above. That way, of course the doctor can give you the best treatment according to the cause.
Hope this helps ...
