I've not been able to sleep properly since december. I used to take my meds and zonk out within half an hour. Now I take them and still lie here wide awake. I usually get around 2 to 3 hours. Sometimes I don't sleep at all and end up getting up st 7am then nap through the day. I fight hard not too but I'm exhausted and I never exceed more than 2 hours. About once every week to ten days I will sleep a good ten hours through the night.
My doctor gave me some extra sleeping pills and upped the dose but they made no difference. I just felt sick and dizzy because I felt the meds trying to work but my brain just won't switch off. I kind of feel tired in my body but my brain is wide awake.
My doc has given up now and told me to exersice and get plenty of fresh air. Yeah right! I spend most of my time in my bedroom because I can't handle the stair's!
Any suggestions? I've tried amiltrypaline, also 2 members of the diazapam family. (Can't remember the names) I've tried over the counter meds. Tried listening to tranquil music, listened to sleep hypnotherapy, used scented oils that are meant to make me relax...I'm running out of ideas.
I would love to get into some sort of routine if possible. X
