Why sleep loves sweating
Question: I have two strange phenomena. One is that when it is hot in summer, whether it is sleeping at night or during the day, as long as it is in the side-lying position, I sweat on it, making it difficult for me to fall asleep sideways, and the weather is cool.When not sweating, you can sleep on your side.
The second is that when you wake up all year round, you often sweat immediately, which is called “self-sweating”, and it is not effective to take Chinese medicine.
What is going on here?
