I've got shot adrenals glands, low cortisol all day, and when I'm in a crash, as I am at the moment, I sleep terribly. I've had some melatonin for ages, and tried about 1mg the other night. I slept like a baby and felt great the next day, no fatigue or aches and pains.
I didn't take it last night and had a restless/non restorative night and the fatigue is back today.
Generally I've given any sleep aids a wide berth. When everything is functioning fine I sleep fine, it's only during crashes that there's an issue. I can't work out if I'm potentially creating a problem by continuing to use the melatonin or actually giving my body the rest it needs to recover. Any thoughts?
