I resist going to sleep, and then to make things a bit worse, I've got Sleep maintenence insomnia, which means I don't sleep the whole night through. The cause of my sleep issues is Anesthesia Awareness, which caused PTSD. OFTEN, PPl W/ PTSD have sleep issues.
I have insomnia..... think it is related to the menopause. Hate it when I cannot sleep. If you can try having naps in the day..... a 20 minute nap can make all the difference. If I get my sleep I can cope with just about anything. Without it I am a basket case. :(
didn't take my pills and ran out of them.
lack of exercise, not tired enough
too much stimulation
disturbed sleep rhythm from shift work
current patterns don't match your natural diurnal rhythm
fear of traumatic dreams and nightmares
too many bedclothes, sleeping too hot
trying looking up "causes of insomnia" on Goggle,
I thought the Mayo clinic site was good, but so are lots of others
i wish i have one so that i can do more work. as for the cause, think about it, what is the one thing that keeps you awake at night? usually some emotional problem or a work that is due some time in the very near future. therefore stress. if you're not feeling anything like that as of the moment, then you are either ignoring that problem/deadline of yours or you don't know your problem
Too much thing going on in my mind when I try to sleep. Try to empty your thought~
Stress and anxiety are the most common causes. If this isn't normal for you, it should go away on its own. If you have persistent problems with sleeplessness, please talk to your doctor about it.
He might be able to refer you someplace else, either to a sleep clinic, or to someone who can help you find the reason for the insomnia. It couldn't hurt. Continued lack of sleep is disabling.
mine is caused by ep.... ep is my addiction as well
