Sleep Problems....

Recommended Posts

Guest j_mommy

I have been gluten-free for a couple of weeks now....and lately I can't get to sleep. I lay in bed a roll around. Prior to going gluten-free bu the end of teh day I was exhausted and fell iinto bed and was out! I'm not complaining about the energy I have now..it's great! I just want sleep.

I usually go to sleep around 10 and up at 7am.

Any ideas/suggestions/opinions would be great!!!!

Maybe you don't need as much sleep anymore? Try going to bed later than 10, like 11. It might do the trick.

Also, try drinking some calming tea, like chamomile, don't watch tv just before bed, or exercise.

I am with you there, I cannot seem to fall asleep lately, and I have been gluten free for a while. I am not up thinking about work or stressing. I have tried everything. I might try the later bedtime, but that would be 12 and I need to get up at 6 for work.


~~~~Gluten Free since 9/2004~~~~~~

Friends may come and go but Sillies are Forever!!!!!!!

maybe try some melatonin. You can find it at the healthfood store in both liquid and pill. 1 mg helps my son relax and fall asleep. You might want to give it a try..here is some info on it, BTW you don't need to be autistic to take it...

My doc put me on a low dose of amitriptyline (25mg) for my sleep issues. I take it about 1/2 hour before I'm ready for bed and not only does it help me get to sleep, but it helps me STAY asleep which is a huge issue for me. Ambien CR is a really good one too - helps you get to sleep and then slow dissolves to get you to stay asleep. I've been on both, the amitripyline helps me more since pain is what keeps me from sleeping. The Ambien helped alot after I had my little one and got insomnia.
