What Causes Night Sweats?

My Husband snores at night. Sometimes it can be very severe. Lately I have also noticed that he is sweating in his sleep as well. Mostly around his neck and upper back. When I touch him he isn t hot, he isn t cold eithor he seems to be at a normal temp. What is causing him to sweat like this ? Should I be concerned?

Hello respected ,

night sweats are many times physiological, no need to worry about,

Just rule out thyroid dysfunction, as it is one of the common problem that causes excessive sweating,

if with fever , weight loss than should rule out T.B.,

and do have a watch on his blood pressure too.

Thank you
