  • I find that too sometimes - on a very strict regime, doing all I am supposed to do and things decent for a while then all of a sudden things fo pear shaped, it may be a night it may be several weeks but Ill be damned if I can work out what sparks it off again.

    Hope it eases for you soon.

  • Yes- it's a real bummer when that happens- all going well and - BANG- .

    The only thing I can point you to , is some trigger set it off. And it can be something very minor.

    I had Honeycomb ice cream one evening - boy - did I not sleep one wink. It's the crunchy bits I discovered later- full of rising agents. Which just annoys hell out of me , because I know to avoid them- Crunchy bars , kitkats etc.

    So- look at your diet VERY carefully - be forensic 😈 .

    You know to avoid all the antihistamines , cough meds etc.

    Good luck.

    Ambien is a good backup to have for those very occasional instances of non sleep. Or oxynorm5 if your Dr would prescribe it. Just for emergency use only.


  • I guess mine was a few ounces of wine at 7:00 pm

  • Have been trying to b very careful with what i eat and all i can think of is that i was taking iron prescribed by my doc tho didnt need it so didnt get any more for over a week now .so other than that god knows .but so glad that other ppl do have same problem tho dont mean in a bad way .thanks for comments .hope for a better nite tonite :(

  • Same thing happened to me last night. Took my med exactly when I have been and was up pacing the floors til 3:30 am.

  • It is hell when it strikes out of the blue like that and even worse when you have to get up to work the next day.
