Re: I dread going to bed

Hi Chris I am sorry to hear this. I would suggest you go back to your GP and inform them the medication is no longer working. They may be able to suggest alternatives. From what you say, there's probably a lot of anxiety going on at bedtime with the tinnitus and unable to sleep. On top of that, you ...

Re: Can't sleep through the night

Thanks for your question. It would be interesting what time you are waking up - are you consistently getting up at the same time all the time or are some days you waking up at 7am and some 11am? You also don't mention how long this has been going on for and if something triggered why this started ha...

Re: Body Clock

Thank you for your question - it would be interesting to know if your friend still gigs on a regular basis? It sounds like his body clock has completely shifted so that he now feels sleepy at the wrong time. Does he find himself waking up later or does he still get up at the same time? I would sugge...

Re: so much energy

Hi Maxine Thanks for your post. Excessive energy can be a symptom of an anxiety disorder like Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder and panic disorder for instance - and sleep can be affected by it. It may be worth you seeing you GP to rule out any underlying anxiety issues. Th...

Re: Struggling at night with temperature

Thanks for your question. Temperature fluctuations at night are normal and are part of regulating your sleep/wake cycle. Your core body temperature does drop in an evening ready for sleep and rises again in the morning preparing you to wake up. However some people are particularly sensitive to tempe...

Re: The time to sleep

Hi Thanks for your message. What you don't say is how long you generally sleep for, what time you need to be up in the morning and what else you're doing through the day... If 7pm is your weak point, could you try to do something else at this time? A walk, an exercise class, go see a friend? Somethi...
