I have written this post about 10 times now and I keep losing it so if it appears 10 times, I apologise.
Every single night, about 4 to 5 times a night, I am woken by what feels like a rush of adrenaline pulsing through me. This is then followed by a feeling of unease. I am wide awake and it can take me ages to get back to sleep. Every day I feel exhausted. My GP has prescribed Sertraline but I have not started them yet as I am concerned re the side effects. The only thing that seems to help is if I take an anti histamine sleep aid. I can then get back to sleep quicker (but not always). Does anyone know what might be the cause please and how I might go about sorting this long standing problem out? I am a 56 year old female who had a total hysterectomy several years ago. I am on estrogen and have played around with the dose with no effect. About 5 years ago I experienced a very high level of stress which lasted a year or two. If anyone can shed any light on my problem: cause and how to solve it I would be so so grateful. Thank you.
