Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Unpleasant dreams and disturbed sleep can be frequently associated with stress. You seem to be going through a stressful period currently, due to the loss of your job. So, it is quite possible that your sleep problems are being caused due to your stress.
The night sweats can also be a manifestation of night time anxiety / panic attacks. However, there are also a few medical conditions which can result in freqent night sweats like hypoglycemia
, certain infections, hormonal imbalances (such as in menopause), etc. The recent worsening of this sweating could also be due to the flu and the associated fever and chills.
So, I would suggest that you try stress management
and relaxation techniques
in order to tackle your stress. If you are feeling overwhelmed by your stress and the related symptoms, then you need to seek professional help from a psychiatrist
. There are effective treatment options available - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy
which will help him overcome your stress-related problems.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
