Hi everybody , I'm 18 and recently I developed insomnia in the middle of my senior year in high school. I believe it's from stress but there must be another issue as well. Starting in October, whever I consumed a protein bar or protein shake I would stay awake wired like I was on caffeine for 2 days. It's odd because I've been working out for years and have been consuming protein bars/shakes since I was 14 and I've never had a problem. After it started I just started to shift to getting all my protein (200g) a day from natural food. Recently I drank an entire carton of soy milk and was awake for 3 days-.- i always fixed my insomnia by following sleep restriction but this time I was messsed up for like a week. I finally started sleeping 4-6 hours a night and feel much better. But is it possible I developed food allergies over time? Should I go get tested just in case because my allergy might be soy. And is it possible for a food allergy to cause terrible insomnia.
