I have a lot of trouble with night sweats and I have been reading several posts on message boards by others who apparently are having the same problem. I have read that many ME/CFS patients are recommending something called a “Chillow Pillow”. You can find these on Amazon.com and you can follow THIS LINK to see and purchase one.
The Chillow Pillow is a water pillow that is filled with a foam or gel. You add water to the port and the cool pillow will help to pull the heat away from your head. You can either use it alone or with your favorite pillow. I’m going to buy one to see if it helps.
Hereis the product description for the “Chillow Plus“:
“ChillowPlus – Comfort Device The ChillowPlus is our first two-way cooling product. The back side is soft and supple and offers cooling on both sides. The foam has been improved in quality and thickness so it holds more water and never bunches! More water means more cooling capacity. The ChillowPlus requires no electricity and offers a noiseless, low cost cooling alternative that while dry itself, will not dry out the air around you or become too cold like traditional cooling methods. This unit has both a cool top and bottom sheet so cooling can be enjoyed on both sides. If your head is on once side, your hands can be tucked under keeping them cool as well. This unit holds up to 80 oz of water which means more cooling capacity for longer periods. Due to the Hydro-Soothe cooling on both sides, this unit wipes clean easily. Custom Velcro has been provided so you can wrap it around loved ones for injuries, burns and medical needs. Also provided are stick and grip feet so the user can customize it and use it for sleeping as well. This product was made with a soothing, cool-blue top sheet of upgraded materials that will stay soft and comforting for years. Also included is an accessory package with each ChillowPlus . This allows the unit to be more flexible to your needs. Each kit has a Velcro Mates so the consumer can wrap it for injuries, burns and leisure. Stick and Grip feet are also included, so the unit can stay in place on the pillow. This unit will meet many of our customers needs as a cooler unit: cooling on both sides and the ability to use it in unique settings.”
