I wrote a post a week ago regarding numbness and paresthesia in limbs when trying to sleep. It's now gotten to a point where I lay awake anticipating these bodily sensations which leads me to never fall asleep. If I even relax or drift off physical symptoms are there to remind me. It's been a vicious cycle and not sleeping is heightening my anxieties and worry.
To backtrack, I've come across some unknown health issues which tests are being run. I do believe that this is leaving me in this anxious state of not knowing. In the meantime until I know I don't anticipate that the insomnia will stop.
I've already increased my effexor during this time and even taking clonazopam during the nights when I panic that I can't sleep. Do my breathing exercises, pray, drink sleepy teas, but nothing seems to work...
I want to rest but as soon I do my arm or some other part of my body goes numb, twitches, or shakes me out of trying to get any sleep.
Can anyone attest to this as well?
