Is this a sleep disorder?

Postby erick96 » Thu Mar 08, 2007 3:10 am

I've had this problem in the past and it's recently resurfaced: I can't fall asleep. Whenever I drift into the first stage of sleep my body wakes me up. Sometimes it's a pop of light. Monday: I was eating and stabbed myself with a fork, Tuesday I kept falling, Wednesday I had a bug crawling on my arm, it's always something, and it happens throughout the night. I'm getting ready for a trip and I’m thinking it could be underlying stress. It's horrible though when it goes on all night, it's also very scary, having your body automatically wake you up whenever you begin to fall asleep. How about taking any medicine. Will it work n give me the sleep that I want.

I have been an insomniac my whole life and it is frustrating and at times scary. Yes medicine will absolutley keep you asleep but I also recommend that you speak with a doctor and find out what the underlying cause is whether physical or mental.
