|Am Suffering From Insomnia by Crenzywilliams(m): 3:06am On Jan 05, 2022|
Am suffering from serious insomnia. I barely get up to
3 hours of sleeping time everyday. Most days I don't get to sleep at all, the worst part is there's really nothing that keeps me awake, most times I play chess all night, when am tired, I read and study, but always unable to concentrate. i find it really difficult to fall asleep.
I really don't have alot on my mind as am not doing badly in life, just the normal stress of life and living.
It started a couple of years ago, about 3/4 years ago, then I could sleep for a total of about 4 hours every night, but I always wokeup at 1:30/2 at night and won't be able to sleep again, now it's gotten really worse over the past few months, since October, I have been unable to get up to 5 hours of sleep in a day. I have tried changing my sleep pattern, it didn't work, I have tried drinking myself to sleep, that's even worst, because the alcohol wears off and am back to sleeplessness. I have also tried sex, it doesn't help at all, I have tried over working myself during the day, it doesn't work.
I have tried to see a doctor here but the doctors keep saying it's not an emergency. I don't know what else to do, am afraid my body is aspiring to it, cos as long as am able to get 1 HR sleep my mind is at peace ... please help with suggestions and recommendations, it's really affecting my concentration.

Your body no send you. It might return to a normal sleep schedule after a while. Tired humans always sleep. It seems you are unemployed hence able to waste so much time awake.

7 - 9 hours of sleep is the most ideal.
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by Healthyway15: 9:22pm On Jan 05, 2022|
Many people with insomnia rest better after changing their diet, lifestyle and nighttime routines. Often the cause is a temporary problem, but If you're having more than 3 months of sleep problem, it's safe to say you're suffering from chronic insomnia, and it can last for months or years causing negative health.
It becomes more evident if it still persists despite adopting good sleep habits. And getting less than 5 hours of sleep regularly is even more dangerous for your health. In some cases, though, taking sleeping pills for a short time can help you sleep, but they are not intended for regular use.
Also, your attempt to self-medicate insomnia with
alcohol, however, will ultimately worsen your
insomnia as you only get poor quality sleep, and may give rise to alcohol abuse and liver diseases.
The best approach can depend on the underlying cause and the type of insomnia. How often do you take sleeping pills? As insomnia can be hereditary, do you have any family members with sleep problem?
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by Crenzywilliams(m): 12:13am On Jan 06, 2022|
Healthyway15:.yes, my late dad couldn't find sleep at the later part of his years, and no, I don't take sleeping pills and I watched my dad hooked on it for such a long time, I have never thought its hereditary, I always thought its an individual thing. So what do you think I can do?
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by Crenzywilliams(m): 12:17am On Jan 06, 2022|
lol, I love the small mindedness of your mind, it's so simple, it's cute; so only unemployed persons "waste the night" being awake...but I won't validate this reply with an answer cos there's no direct question here.

uthlaw:at times I deliberately work myself out, but then sleep no de pass 2 hrs- 3 hrs, it's been going on for too long.

Crenzywilliams:You did. You aren’t ready for a response, only ready to troll the forum.
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by Crenzywilliams(m): 3:14am On Jan 06, 2022|
suffering:you obviously don't have a solution for me, it seems to me you have the very same problem bud.
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by uthlaw: 6:13am On Jan 06, 2022|
Crenzywilliams:do you take sugary drinks?
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by Healthyway15: 7:26am On Jan 06, 2022|
Yes, studies suggest you can be genetically predisposed to having insomnia, with the genes making it hard for the brain to enter sleep mode many times. Generally, doctors do not conduct genetic testing for sleep issues in a clinical setting.
Even if the problem is genetic, insomnia is still well treated, and its proper treatment is the same regardless of whether you have a genetic predisposition. First, while you’re at it, if there's any tips and tricks your dad used to improve his sleep that you know of, I advise that you apply it too. Since you’re related, what worked for him may also be helpful for you.
Also, there are natural health supplements that effectively work well for the treatment of insomnia so you can enjoy quality night sleep again. For enquiries, you can check my signature.
Take good care.

Not so easy man. It's become an addition
|Re: Am Suffering From Insomnia by waso12: 3:22pm On May 05, 2022|
I had the same problem. The thing is that I had disrupted my sleep schedule and could only fall asleep at 3 to 5 a.m. This is very bad because I have to get up at 8 o'clock for work, 4 hours of sleep has a very negative effect on my daily activity. I found a solution to restore my regime, I bought myself some silk pillows from http://poshey.com, and before that, I overworked my body on purpose. I can declare that after this procedure, I slept like a dead man, and it helped me. You should try it too, maybe it will help.
