Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to hormone deprivation

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

Night sweats in a post menopausal woman of your age occurs typically due to hormone deprivation. Visit a gynecologist and ask him to consider Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). I think HRT will bring relief and you.
