I just need some help.
I’ve suffered from insomnia for about 7 years. Always I’ve noticed cyclical (I look on time hop and see I posted about it being bad and it will be particularly bad then too).
I have periods of being fine.
I thought it started with no reason really but have recently found out I’ve gone through an early menopause and the time it started coincides really i think.
I bad night would usually involve dropping off at maybe 5am.
I won’t take sleeping tablets.
I use magnesium spray as a natural muscle
Relaxant which helps and I just started a herbal menopause supplement.
I had an iud removed in May after 7 years and I’ve had months of brilliant sleep. Like a normal person. Falling asleep watching tv.
I’m in a really bad cycle. Triggered by a night out which caused a sleepless night. That was a month ago. I’m experiencing nights of no sleep at all which was last night.
I feel awful physically and mentally. It’s causing really bad night time anxiety.
I need to break this cycle but also the insomnia too.December 3, 2019 at 7:16 pm #34255

I feel your pain Mamatoboys I too am suffering like you so your certainly not alone!! It can be so lonely and no one really understands, unless they have suffered too.
Do you feel tired during the day? I certainly don’t which I find very odd certainly after very little sleep.
Last night I had a particularly bad night…who’d have thought that something is supposed to Bev so natural can cause some people such heartache 😟December 5, 2019 at 10:50 pm #34342

Those ups and downs are very common if you don’t have a consistent (and appropriate) sleep schedule. When do you typically go to bed at night, and when do you get out of bed in the morning? On an average night, how many hours of sleep would you say you get?
