What causes night sweats?

I am a 52 year old female, approx 62kg in weight, 5ft 8 have had night sweats on and off since about 44 years of age. Drs presumed menopausal symptoms and have tried various medications, only to now find out hormone levels are still within normal range. Any ideas?

Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if this is the night sweat symptoms only then it may not be due to any disease, menopause may not cause night sweat, first you need to check out the shrouding temperature, some time it could be due to low hemoglobin, but not always, over all this is nothing to worry, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
