Brief Answer: It can be due to anxiety or fever. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, it seems that clammy skin in her case can be due to anxiety or due to too much temperature variations of the surrounding area. It can also be due to decrease in her blood pressure or pulse rate. You should get her blood pressure and pulse rate monitored in night when she gets the symptoms. Also make sure that the temperature of her surrounding is comfortable. Her diet and water intake should be adequate. A urine culture and sensitivity test along with complete blood count will be helpful in knowing whether the infection is still persisting or not. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Regards. Thanks.
