Im 51 years old and sometimes have the same problem, however, mine is stress related..I'll go to sleep about 11pm and usually wake-up about 3pm to take a piss and cant get back to sleep when I get back into bed..

I have FAR too much on my mind that I may often take to bed with me, such as what the MDNR has done to the ORV Safety Education Program [ compleltely f-ed it up ] and this proposed 30.00 new ORV sticker fee that I dont yet support.

Try to take some L-Trytophen and some Melatonin together before you go to bed. You can buy these products over the counter at any health store and they are NOT addicting and dont leave you drowsy in the morning when you awake. Most people have good results with these two products..

I feel for you because when this occurs, im dragging asz for the rest of the next day.

Best of luck my friend and I hope you get better real soon.

Bill

I did but began to go to counseling. Turns out the stress in my life was causing me horrible sleep patterns. als started going to a chiropractor. I'm up now because I'm about to go to work.

Some suggestions that have worked for me....

1. About 30 minutes before going to bed, do some aerobic type exercises --running in place, jumping jacks, exercise bicycle, treadmill, stuff like that. Strenuous sex will also work for this. Give yourself 30 minutes to cool down and then try sleeping.

2. Avoid eating for 1 to 2 hours before bedtime.

3. If you do wake up and can't get right back to sleep, don't just lay there fighting it. Get a book or magazine and read until you feel sleepy. If you do get sleepy while reading, just let the book flop down and close your eyes. Don' put the book away, or turn off the light or anything--that will jsut wake you up again.

4. If you are taking your showers at night, change your pattern and take them in the morning.

5. If you have certains things, like jobs or chores or projects, that you're worrying about, jot them down on a "To-Do" list before you go to bed and promise yourself you;ll work on them the next day.

If none of this helps, see your family physician. Some metabolic or neurologic process may be the culprit.

I am curisous to know how old one has to be to get this problem started? myself I have a sleep issues but its more related to stress. when I was young and in good shape I was an insomniac. I could hardly sleep at night. worked weird hours and messed up my patterns to the point I had to start drinking to fall asleep.

This works pretty well for me.

I do notice that if I exercise daily for at least 30 minutes I tend to sleep a lot better.

Thanks for all the great suggestions!! And thank you Bill as well! I slept ok last night.. I woke up a few times but was able to fall back asleep after a little while. It definitely wasn't the best sleep in my life but will cut it now compared to how I have been sleeping. If it was just once and awhile I wouldn't be complaining... But its been happening more and more over the past three months now.. But these past few weeks have been the worst.

Thank you for all the suggestions! I appreciate it!

I don't know if you realized that I am a female therefore I am not 'eguipped' to just 'rub one out'. LoL!

And as far as the benadryl goes.. I have had to take this route a few times or take sleeping meds and I am just trying to steer away from any meds really.. I just wanna find what's gonna really help me sleep again. I usually sleep like a rock. Normally I am a DEEP sleeper!

Take a shot of captain morgan or two before you go to bed. I did that for a while when I couldn't sleep it worked good.

Get Melatonin at health store.

Use that when you couldn't sleep.

My Dog use too but 3 or 6 mg won't work for him so 9 mg is great he fell sleep like baby for 7 hours then he woke up again.

6 mg I use work great.

That's hardly an excuse nowadays. With the adult industry aftermarket you should be just fine.
