From this study (7 months ago):
Night sweats constantly and once I get hot and start sweating I can't cool down. I just sweat more and more until I do something like blast a fan on me for a long time and I have to keep my a/c down really low. Any activity causes the sweating to start which begins at my head, face and neck and down my back.
