Insomnia help

First of all I'm not completely sure if I have social anxiety but if I did I wouldn't know if it would affect my insomnia

Hello! I'm a 14 year old girl who suffers from bad middle of the night insomnia and something's regular insomnia.

This has been happening for years now EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! I wake up around 3 times a night and it'll take 10-30 minutes to get back to sleep. O wake up for no good reason - nothing to wake me up.

I don't know what to do!!! My parents know and they've tried to help like looking for a kid friendly herbal medicine and we've seen a doctors and the doctor even said to our faces that she doesn't know anything about sleep and that all she knows is that we shouldn't start proper medication at my age which I agree with

I know that I've already posted before but that was before I visited the doctor (which didn't help)

If you want to read my previous post then feel free! I have good sleep hygiene, I drink warm milk before I go to bed and as far as I know I'm healthy.

Please please reply as fast as you can, and as much as you can even if someone else has commented - I need as much help as possible because I just don't know what to do!! Help :-(

Sorry to heat this.. I remember being 5 or maby 6 and my mom always givi me chamomile tea so that I can sleep.. I cant remember me not being able to sleep but according to her I wouldn't.. ask your mom if its ok for you to drink it.. hope you feel better. . Your Dr should of referred you to a Dr that does know about sleep...


I suffer from bad insomnia, I've tried lavender, hot milk, eye mask, black out curtains, Horlicks, herbal remedies. I would get your Dr to refer you for a sleep study, I had this done to check for sleep disorders but nothing was found! I know how u feel and the more you worry about it the worse it gets! Have you tried relaxation techniques? Xx
