    ✘ Not a client

    I’ve had insomnia for years and it’s gotten worse with age. I’m retired and go to bed at the same time every night and get up at the same time each morning. Tried sleep restriction several times but not much success. Had a sleep study and do not have a sleep disorder. At a loss.

    Welcome to the forum. Let’s get to the bottom of this!

    When do you normally go to bed at night, when do you get out of bed in the morning (great to hear you are observing a consistent out of bed time, by the way!), and roughly how many hours of sleep would you say you are getting on a typical/average night?

    Do you tend to have more difficulty with falling asleep at the start of the night, or waking during the night and finding it hard to fall back to sleep (or both)?

    You mentioned that you tried sleep restriction in the past. Can you tell us a bit more about that? How long did you try sleep restriction for, and what was the start time and end time of your chosen sleep window?
