Sleep

Hello!! Does anyone else have NO problem falling asleep at night, but an annoying habit of waking up several times a night. …for no reason? I go back to sleep just fine afterwards, till I do it again, usually 2-3 times a night.

Hey Laurianne,

I also wake up several times a night, mine is due to the excessive twitches I get in my legs/feet. It becomes irritating and frustrating so I decide to try and walk it off haha.

Amitriptyline puts me to sleep within minutes, just a shame it won’t put me to sleep the whole night through.

All the best!

Thank you, @jayjay10. I dont have leg twitches. Sometimes I wake up nauseous because I’m too hot, I just kick off the sheets and it goes right away so I go back to sleep. That happens only sometimes, usually it’s for no reason, that I can tell anyway.

I get that too, heat wakes me up and as you mentioned, blankets end up being kicked off. 😂
