How to treat sweating and shivering at night?

My boyfriend is always sweating profusely at night and has occasional shivers. He is 68 years old, drinks moderately and smokes 1-2 cigarettes per day. Taking medications for high blood pressure, bendrofumethiazide and simvastatin. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello,

We need to get some tests done:
1) Thyroid profile
2) CBC
3) Vitamin B levels
4) Vitamin D levels
