Neck/Spinal cord compression and night sweats

For the longest time my mother has been suffering from really bad night sweats. They are to the point of waking up in the middle of the night completely soaking wet, bed at all. Her MRI showed that not only did she has several levels that displayed "backwards slippage" but also edema that was pressing on the spinal cord at several levels.
Could this be a potential cause for the sweating?
She will speak to her Dr about it on next visit but it's a bit aways as she has to go through the VA system, so I figured I would post here on her behalf.

Thanks in advance for any help, advice, suggestions you may have.
