I have always been a deep sleeper and my love affair with my bed has been a success story for the most part, but the past week my bedtime has literally been mental torture.
I am not depressed, anxious or have anything particularly on my mind. I wake up early in the morning and always go to bed at a sensible time. The only caffeine I have is two cups of black coffee in the morning.
My 'sleep hygiene' is good and I do not smoke or do drugs, nor am I on any medication. My girlfriend is a light snorer and this has caused some problems in the past however I can usually sleep through it fine.
But for the past week when I go to bed, I literally toss and turn for hours and hours and my mind will not shut down for bedtime. I have tried moving rooms, switching pillows, and virtually every remedy.
Does anyone else experience insomnia? I have actually had to take an unpaid day off work today because I simply can not function in the day properly, and I can't keep doing that!
I need some remedies for unexplainable insomnia- I am aware this is not a medical forum or a doctors surgery, but any tips or hints/advice on this issue would be appreciated.
