Thanks for posting your query.
The presence of pimples all over your body is suggestive of superficial skin infection. The cause of aching muscles might be a recent viral infection which you might have suffered in the recent past. The night sweats can be the result of weakness arising out of such an infection.
Night sweats and cold sweats can indicate an under-active thyroid - this is the gland that regulates our metabolism.You need to get his thyroid levels checked.
Another common reason is environmental factors, such as too many covers or heavy pajamas.
I would advise you first take some B complex supplements to watch for any relief.
If problem persists then get yourself evaluated by your physician for specific treatment of the infection you might be having.
Pain killers might bring some symptomatic relief from aches.
Please do not worry, avoid stress, smoking, caffeine and alcohol to have better relief.
Also try to include a mild exercise schedule like yoga in your daily lifestyle.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,
