Hi 👋 Dr. @Valerie_C - I love my evening glass of red wine 🍷 I enjoy it so much…I fall asleep great and then a few hours later I’m lying awake staring at the ceiling - I’ve heard about this, but I’m not sure what’s going on here? Any tips for still enjoying my wine without waking up in the middle of the night?
Hi Dr @Valerie_C I've been struggling with waking up in the middle of the night for several years and crashing in the afternoon. I've tried so many things but nothing seems to work for the long term.I am reaching the point where my brain fog is so severe that I can barely focus on my work. I'm actually scared. I don't want to read another article linking lack of sleep to alzheimers etc! People think my problem is that I don't prioritize sleep and it's somehow a behavioral issue. I've got something going on that is hard to pinpoint. I don't know how or if you can help, or maybe share your contact info but I really need to find a solution. The fatigue is awful!
My sleep is very disrupted. Most often, I fall asleep at night, then wake up 3 or 4 hours later with a headache. I often can’t get black to sleep until it’s almost time to get up. All this means that I am very tired, foggy and not at my best throughout the day. It’s very frustrating, and I can’t function well. In addition, I sometimes have difficulty falling asleep at night. Any suggestions you could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
