Thanks for your suggestions. I've tried some of those natural approaches and they do help some, but they're not 100% effective. Is it necessary to try a combination of things to find the combination that works for you? Will I always have some sleepless nights even with these approaches?View Thread
Ever since I turned 30 I've been having problems falling and staying asleep. A couple years ago I also had symptoms of depression and anxiety and I decided to go to the doctor. He diagnosed me with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) and said that that could be the cause of my insomnia and other symptoms. I was put on a hormone treatment which helped a little, but now I wonder if there is something else. I find that I still have trouble sleeping if I'm anxious or excited about something.
My dad sometimes has trouble sleeping too. It could be because he did shift work for a long time, but he also has trouble sleeping when he's concerned about something.
I would like to know if my sleep problems are related to his and if insomnia is hereditary.
I appreciate any information you can share with me on this subject.View Thread
