Is anyone else experiencing insomnia? How about sleep talking?
I always had insomnia and was a sleep talker from an early age. The past week or two have been worse than the rest. I'm wondering if there's a reason for it. Something in my diet or stress levels maybe?
Hi CroftRoan. I have insomnia really bad and it drives me crazy. After two weeks I will actually get one good night sleep then I'm back at it again walking floors at night or taking my dog around the neighborhood at the wee hours of the morning. I can't shut my mind off which makes me unable to relax enough to go to sleep. It is mostly due to stress. I have tried everything under the sun and on the planet and nothing works. Camomile tea the whole gammit. I have had success with meditation and that helps better than anything, however, I still wake up after an hour or two. I guess an hours worth of sleep is better than nothing. Try meditation and see if that helps shut down your brain so you can get some sleep. Don't drink sodas, juice, coffee or tea before you go to bed, drink water and cut down on your sugar intake. The caffine and sugar can keep you awake as well. Try to change your diet to more wholesome foods and stay away from the canned foods as there are too many chemicals in them. I just found out I am diabetic so I have had to change my entire eating habits and eat more fresh veggies and fruits which has helped some with my sleeping. If you think about it all the stuff they put in processed foods just isn't good for our bodies anyway so go organic as best as you can. Best of luck to you and I'm sorry you can't sleep either.
Yes, a lot of reasons for insomnia can be more stress than normal. There are nights when people process things more and sometimes your mind becomes so active, thinking about everything, that it is often difficult to get a good nights rest. I have found that not just exercise, but taking melatonin supplements can help you get to sleep a lot easier.
If that doesn't work, then ask your healthcare provider for a prescription of 0.5 mg. of Klonopin, which is very effective for helping you get to sleep.
And because of a longer half life, it isn't as addicting as Xanax for example. In other words, it metabolizes a lot slower in you body, Hope this helps you in your quest for more restful nights.
My ex-husband told me that I answered questions in my sleep. I didn't ever remember him asking me anything the next morning, but he said I would always answer. Good thing I was a good wife!!
I've had terrible insomnia -- I too am one of those who can get to sleep but not stay asleep. Stress certainly makes it worse. I've mentioned before that if my mind's racing, I get up and read cat Hubs!
I also noticed I jerk myself awake. I researched and discovered low magnesium is a possible culprit. I started taking a supplement, and the twitches have improved, though not gone away.
Try the reading. But do it in a different room. I find lying on the couch reading cat Hubs on my tablet is more soothing than reading in bed. It's that anxiety about the sleep-place that you read about -- remove the anxiety, and sometimes you can get back to sleep.
lol. I wrote a hub about why insomnia is a writer's friend. I actually like being able to stay awake all night but I appreciate you might think that's a little strange.
As for sleep talking ... that's just about everything I say first thing in the morning. My kids know that anything I say when I first wake up (particularly if I am giving permission for anything or agreeing to spend money) is to be ignored. My husband knows never to hand me a telephone within 30 minutes of my feet hitting the floor because I probably won't make sense. He just tells callers I'll ring them back.
I wake up pretty easily. It's just that most of the time I'm not getting a good night's sleep because I keep waking up. I don't any sense while sleep talking or else I'd have my boyfriend write down what I say. I might've gotten some ideas from it.
i had insomnia for 1-2 years after i was hooked to watching korean dramas. I could watch from 7pm to the next morning 7am ! Then, when my boy started school, i forced myself to sleep at 9pm for his sake. Hence, this problem stopped and i drink less tea too. Tea and coffee makes me wide awake and food. Never have any food at night. You won't be able to get to sleep with a bloating stomach!
I'd say stress because when I am not in a familiar area, I start sleep talking and walking. I'm at my girlfriend's house and its in a different country. For the first three weeks, I kept having a dream where I was running away from something and I couldn't wake up until I ran into something. I kept running into the wall and the bathroom door in real life. So yeah, I believe its stress.
