Hi I'm 29 yr old male and wanted to know if anyone has any ideas on how to get rid of insomnia. My issue started about six months I can't fall asleep at night lay there in bed for hours tossing and turning and when I do fall asleep I wake up fall back wake up the doctor gave me ambien for 30 days that worked ok I've tried melatonin didn't work took OTC sleep aids they helped alittle. I workout daily I eat right take my vitamins don't drink much or do drugs I do work the night shift 4-12:30 am but first few months doing that I had no sleep problem now all I think about is sleep and if it will ever be easy again. I had insomnia 4 yrs ago for a month or so and it just went away I do have a history of anxiety disorder but no panic attacks in years and I don't take meds for it anymore not for years.
I'm worried I could have that fatal insomnia I read about online.View Thread
I usually stay up read or watch tv I've tried everything and doesn't work I haven't slept in months without taking some form of sleep aid. I can't stop thinking about will I sleep etc then I read online about the fatal insomni and now im all stressed out I am kind of a hypercondriac always been since a kid. When I lay down thoughts just run through my mind about anything and I think about when am i gonna fall asleep etcView Thread
