If you couldn't sleep, as in really can't sleep at all..When would you consider it a problem before you went to the doctors?
I have had between 0-3 hours sleep every night for about a week now, I feel tired..I lie in bed, and try to sleep..I don't drink caffeine or eat anything that might stimulate me before bed, and I have tried hot baths etc, but nothing seems to work anymore..I feel exhausted!
I start my new job next week, and I really want to feel at my best for that. Friends have told me to go to the doctors, but just wondered what you all thought I could do, before I resorted to that!
Or you get these little tabs things that have lavender oil and some other stuff I think and you put them on your pillow to help you sleep. Boots do loads of natural sleep aids which are pretty good. If nothing like this works I would then definitely go to the doctors. Hope you get some sleep!
I would go to the doctors.
If you've tried everything you know to try to sleep, and nothing helps, the doctor may be able to suggest something.. Or find out if there is an underlying reason!
My mom has issues sleeping, and has sleeping pills. She generally only uses them once, MAX twice per week. And she usually takes one friday or saturday night so that she gets one good sleep per week, and usually that really helps her having that one dead to the world sleep!
Go to the doctors, don't suffer for no reason. The doctor will give you plenty of suggestions. I'm usually on sleeping tabs but i've had to stop them since being pregnant. Maybe you can ask for tablets with drowsy effects or something similar x
