I haven't posted for a while, although I regularly read posts...I need some help with constant insomnia...plagued with it for years.
Luckily, I don't seem to struggle with many of the 66 symptoms except this insomnia.
I take 400g of magnesium, 1000g starflower, 1000g omega, high Vit c and zinc. Menoforce sage.
I have tried two packs of menopace night time multivitamins, but didn't really help.
Have never tried prescription sleeping meds and am loathe to use herbal sleeping remedies as can't have the next morning druggy feeling!
Last night, for first time, took a sample of Pukka night time caps...not much help, now just feel heady and still didn't sleep through (may have more to do with husband having "man flu"!!!!)
I can usually eventually drop off but endlessly wake up after 2 hours...most nights probably get at most 5 hours broken sleep, on the very very odd occasion, I feel great on 6 hours unbroken sleep!
Have tried sleepy teas...yuk and nothing.
Never drink caffeine after lunch, try to get to bed at same time most nights. Try not to use screens in bed!
Have even resorted to taking Benylin night coughs which gets me off but still wake in early hours etc...
Am active, healthy and slim...make sure I get exercise and fresh air every day!
Any ideas anyone please...do get desperate for a night's sleep...as some of you know already...
Thank you jx
