Night sweats at this age are not related to menopause obviously.
Other important causes may be chronic diseases like tuberculosis, lymphoma, hyperthyroidism, inappropriately heavy night gowns or use of hot quilts, deliberate weight loss etc.
What are your other symptoms or ailments if any, do you feel tired all the time. Please let me know.
You should get investigated, Get Complete blood counts, CR, chest Xray as a primary work up for the problem.
I would try to help you out.
Wish you a good health.
