Do you or someone you know suffer from Insomnia? What did you do to treat it? Do you find that Insomnia is born out of habit (staying up late / avoiding sleep) or something related to brain / blood? Chronic inability to fall asleep or remain asleep for an adequate length of time.

Several things can cause insomnia from medical problems to simply bad sleeping habits. I have found that since I work at night and have to switch my sleeping schedule often that I have bouts of insomnia. Other medical issues can cause insomnia as well, even medications. I am taking Prednisone for poison ivy right now and only sleep 2-5 hours at a time before I wake up wide awake. I'm not tired, just starting to get worn down from lack of sleep.

Before trying something like Lunesta and Ambian, I suggest something natural. Go to Wal-Mart or Target and go to the pharmacy section. Get some Melatonin and Valerian Root. The first is what your body naturally secretes when its time to sleep. Valerian Root is a natural relaxant.

Insomnia Health & Special Psychology

Yes unfortunately, I suffer from insomnia. However, I have found innovative ways to deal with it and actually, get a good night's sleep. Here are a few ways that I try to cure my insomnia:

1) Read a boring book.
2) Do a lot of housework during the day.
3) Exercising rigorously especially doing pilates.
4) Eliminating coffee from my diet.
5) Watching television.
6) This is my favourite and latest habit: logging on here, focusing on various topics (that may capture my interest) and responding to them.

I have discovered that caffeine and poor sleeping habits, contributed to my insomnia. To conquer my insomnia, I have chosen to: exercise regularly, go to bed at a regular and reasonable hour (rather than, staying up too late into the night) and eliminate coffee from my diet.

Gene mutation helps explain night owl behavior

Some people stay up late and have trouble getting up in the morning because their internal clock is genetically programmed to run slowly, according to a new study. A mutation in a gene called CRY1 alters the human circadian clock, which dictates rhythmic behavior such as sleep/wake cycles. Carriers of the gene variant experienced nighttime sleep delays of 2-2.5 hours compared to non-carriers. Ref. Source 7j.

I do not have a issue of staying up late or getting up early. I do have insomnia a lot of late. I am a light sleeper at times as can be woken easy. I wonder if my Insomnia is related to some of the issues I am having from the military service?

Yeah, I have a lot of friends with insomnia. Their sleeping issue definitely relates to their Army time. You should go and get yourself checked out.

Bed partners may unintentionally contribute to the perpetuation of insomnia. Preliminary results from a new study show that partners of people who have insomnia may try to be supportive by engaging in a range of behaviors that unintentionally contradict treatment recommendations. Source 2u.
