Heavy night sweats, dizziness during the day, have strong body odor. Should I see a doctor?

For the past 6 months I have been experiencing heavy night sweats (so much so that I wake up soaked and have to change my clothes), dizziness during the day (I could be standing in a room and the entire room seems to shift), and strong body odor , especially under my arms (even though I shower once or more a day)... Do I need to see a doctor?

Dear Sunbee, hello
Thanks for writing your query.
You have not mentioned your complete details like your age, gender, whether you are on any medicaton, etc.
Night sweats may be due to genetic reasons and can be harmless. It is also common in females above 40 years near their premenopausal / menopausal stages due to hormonal changes.
There are many medical conditions also which can result in night sweats. Intake or withdrawl of some medicines can also cause night sweats.
Also take care of the temperature of your bedroom and the layers of sheets on your bed as high room temperature or many layers of bedshhets can also keep your body warm and result in niht sweats.
It is advisable that give detailed personal and medical history of youself and get youself examined and investigated.
I hope this is of help to you.
Thanks.

Hi
Yes, you MUST see a doctor. You have not stated your age or gender...
Is our pressure and sugar normal? Have you any other complaint? Have you ever had ECG?
You need to have a physical examination and some basic work-up > blood count, sugar, thyroid and so on. One should not miss a treatable condition....
Good luck
