Any other symptoms?

Detailed Answer:

Sorry to hear about this nights sweats. Would like to know if you have any other symptoms such as cough, weight loss, loss of appetite, excessive body weakness. Also, have you had any recent contact with someone who coughs or with similar symptoms? are there any other symptoms that you might want to report?

I need these responses to be able to establish a list of possible causes and guide you towards identifying solutions to this. I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
