    Some kind of insomnia?

    Every night for the last year or so it's hard for me to fall asleep. It's like I can't eat relaxed enough or something. I can't fall asleep for 3-4 hours after I close my eyes. I did some research and I think it's Psychophysiological insomnia. Does anyone have experience in treating it or how to get to sleep quicker?

    Possible Seizure? Or really bad Sleep Paralysis?

    When I was a little younger I would get sleep paralysis a lot so I’m use to it when I get it now every so often. Only tonight it was different, I was in that sleep paralysis state but instead of not being able to move my body was shaking. I felt this type of straining feeling I get when trying to come out of it and “woke” up. I tried to sleep again only this time it was more intense and happened quickly. I was turning over in bed and as I was doing so I closed my eyes, my head twitched, and instantly....

    Weird sensation when going to sleep

    When I go to sleep I am finding i am getting this weird numb feeling but it's very difficult to describe. It's not a tingly numb feeling, it feels more like my head and hands are almost bloated if that makes sense. Theres no pain and I find if I lie on my back the feeling subsidies and then I can go back to sleeping on my side. I used to get the same sensation as a child but only when I was ill. Recently however I am getting this every night despite being fit and healthy. It's not affecting....

    Work Week vs Weekend Sleeping Patterns

    During the work week I am lucky if I can have around 6 hours of restless sleep, where as during the weekend I am typically able to have 13-15 hours of deep undisturbed sleep. I wanted to know if this is typical and if there is anything that can be done to help lengthen the total amount of sleep I receive during the work week so that I can be more alert and better focused on my job. Also when I sleep for that much during my weekends I tend to arrive on Monday feeling exhausted and unable to concentrate....

    Not reaching deep sleep?

    I’ve never been able to wake up to alarms very well, and even if I do I just hit snooze multiple times. I downloaded an alarm app in hopes that it might help, and it came with something I wasn’t expecting. It monitored the vibrations I made in my sleep and made a chart about what level of sleep I was during the night. It combined the 2nd and 3rd stages of sleep into one stage and the same with the 4th and REM. I noticed that, while I would wake up several times in the night, I only ever achieved....
