I've had the problem over the past few months of waking up burning hot. I'm not looking for medical suggestions, just wanting to know what I would refer to this symptom as, or if there's a better way to put it. When I Google or search on sites like WebMD for "wake up too hot," or "wake up too warm," or "wake up burning," etc, nothing comes up.
It's not a night-sweat because I'm not excessively sweaty when I wake up, esp. considering how hot I am when I wake up. I usually wake up 1-2 hours earlier than normal and have to turn down the heat even more, or turn up the fan, take off covers, etc. I sleep in little, got a thinner blanket, use a fan, etc. Boyfriend sleeps in same bed and is fine even in pants and a shirt.
