Apparently the uncomfortable bit is the band around your chest but it's only for one night then that's it   :happy0158:

Great thanks for asking him. I started a diet money lose some weight, as I also feel sleepy during day when I'm not suffering insomnia.

Yup, that sounds like Steve too... he's snoring his head off on the sofa as I type this!  I hope you get a diagnosis and help for your insomnia soon!

Good luck Joe!  Maybe keep a sleep diary between now and your appointment so that you've got it written down if they ask what your sleep is currently like?   :hug:

Sorry, I haven't read all the posts so if I repeat anything Amanda has written please ignore me  ;) .  My husband got diagnosed with sleep apnoea four years ago and is supposed to wear a mask that's attached to a small machine.  When he used it he didn't snore and had quality sleep but hasn't used it in a long while so I suffer his snoring.  The scary part was finding out he stopped breathing 58 times in an hour.

Do you wear yourself out during the day?  If you sit with your computer or the telly on then you won't be using your energy up from the food you eat so it'll still be buzzing around your body when you go to bed.  I'm not suggesting you run a marathon (unless you want to) or anything like that, but maybe offer to walk a dog or get off the bus a stop sooner or walk round the block a few times or something like that?  I haven't had insomnia since I've been walking the pup every morning!

Are you on any meds?  If you are, do you think they are working?  How would you feel about changing to/starting one that has tiredness as a side effect?  The Olanzapine does that for me... it doesn't knock me out for 12 hours like the Zyprexa did, but it definitely speeds up the time it takes me to fall asleep!

I'm defo not active at all. Think that's a major problem in my life. I really don't have he urge to do anything at all these days. Lack of Sleep has depressed me that much.

Totally understand 'cos I was the same until recently.  Do you have a garden you can potter around in or are you near a hospital that might help too?  It's just that when I came out of hospital I was very unsteady on my feet so they prescribed a 6 week, twice a week in their gym... nothing too strenuous, just using the bike thing... maybe you could ask if there is anything like that where you are?   :hug:

Edited to add:  Even once around the block a couple of times a week will help to burn off the energy and make you tireder sooner.  If you need a reason to go around the block, maybe try going to places you haven't been for a while to see if anything has changed?  Or go out and take photo's of the area you live in?   :happy0158:

Thanks for the advice. I will take few walks and see how it goes. I don't like to walk to far as my thoughts are never positive. But I need to do something to tire me out.

You don't need to walk far and please start off slowly, just get the tiredness out of you until bed time!  Just walk around the block once a week then twice a week then take it from there!  You won't be far from home and you can go back whenever you want to - just take things at your own pace!   :happy0158:
