Night sweats, chills post childbirth. History of smoking. Treatment for symptoms?

I wake up a a few times a night covered in sweat. Clothes, bedding etc. But at the same time I am freezing! This continues for a few hours after I am awake. I m a 27 yr old female, smoker, good health. I had twins 6 months ago but this started about 4-6 weeks ago. I feel just fine other than the hours of freezing while I sweat.

I do not feel that your symptoms are directly related to smoking. These symptoms are most likely due to some kind of hormonal abnormality which could have been a complication of delivery. I would have liked to know if you bled a lot during the delivery and whether you have had any problems in lactation or not. Please consult your gynaecologist/obstetrician regarding these problems so that a hormonal assessment can be done. Please also consider quitting smoking, as whatever be the reason for your symptoms, smoking can only worsen it.

Best wishes.
