User :   im having night sweat in the chest area
User :   but after i changed the bed sheet seems i don't sweat last night
User :   can you confirm if this saying os true ?
User :   You have low blood pressure during sleep. Your chest is sweating because the heat from your organs doesn't get circulated properly, yet you have enough circulation for oxygen distribution, etc. If the above scenario fits you, the reason for the sweltering heat upon waking is because your body produces adrenaline, which kicks your blood pressure up to the normal range, and the torso heat is instantly distributed.
