Suggest treatment for night sweats

I have many night sweats daily. I understand the thalamus has something to do with them. I take 2 Estroven every day. They used to work but no more. They're making me completely crazy. I've had 5 brain surgeries in the past 4 years if that makes any difference.

Hi dear user
I have gone through your question.

Yes ,you are right.The hypothalamus regulates our body temperature, utilizing the sweat glands to help keep us cool.
In your case ,i think that night sweats can be a weird side effect of brain surgeries.
Anyway i suggest to talk with your doctor to find the underlying cause because it is very important for right treatement of your problem.
Hope i have answered to your question.If you have any other doubts,than feel free to ask me.
Wish you good health.
