Sorry to hear about your current sleep issues, praymore — they must be very concerning for you. Can you tell me a bit more about your current sleep patterns? What time do you normally go to bed, when do you normally get out of bed, and roughly how many hours of sleep do you get on a typical night?December 2, 2018 at 4:59 am #24198
I go to bed at 12am get up at 7am.i just close my eyes and put earplugs in..and it does feel like I’m sleeping.been like this for 2yrs..i get panic attacks and feel frightened,it doesn’t feel like I’m in control of my body.its the most horrible feeling.i could ever have.when I get up,I just don’t know what to do with myself.iv lost my self esteem and zest for life and focus is really bad..makes me feel like ending it all..cause cant see light at end of the tunnel.since I had that dizzy spell two years ago life has just stopped for me..i been doctors had mri done said everything is normal.how can it be if I cant cope with life..so I just hope and pray things change.even if I wanted to nap I couldn’t cause mind dont shut upDecember 2, 2018 at 4:59 am #24199

It’s little wonder that you are losing your zest for life and focus when living with the sleep issues you are describing. Do you find that your biggest difficulty is falling asleep at the start of the night, or is your problem related more to waking during the night and finding it hard to fall back to sleep?
Right now you are allotting roughly seven hours for sleep each night. How many hours of sleep do you think you get on a typical night?
To answer your other questions — simply reply to a forum topic to reply to a post (there is no ability to send private messages through the forum). I use CBT-I techniques to overcome sleep issues — and I believe I covered jerks when trying to sleep in a previous forum topic.December 4, 2018 at 8:51 pm #25421
