Still seem to be having troubles with this. I've brought up my bladder issues with the doctor they checked for Diabetes which at least for now I don't have. They did urine tests and said everything was normal if anything it was a bit too diluted, which I don't understand I don't drink that much. But he said Anxiety can cause a nervous bladder but the thing is it typically hits at times when I'm not anxious about anything especially when I'm trying to sleep at nights. I can't seem to make it through the night without having to get up and go.

I tried the Melatonin and it helped greatly but also knocked me out during the daytime so now I'm playing with the dosage on it so I can still be functual during the daytime. I think this is just what's got me more messed up and agrevated more than anything is not being able to sleep all the way through the night.

I know what you are going thru and you're not alone, but sincerely these supplements have helped to relax me alot, even in the toughest moments. But in addition I pray and sometimes do some Bible reading and that seems to sooth my soul too.

Thanks I'll see about picking up some Melatonin today before I go to bed and see what happens I'll give it a few days and get back with you on it. I have heard before drinking a little milk before bed, which has to be where your calcium comes into play. I guess I just want to blame some unknown supernatural phenomenom for what is happening and not just realizing that even though I don't seem anxious when I wake up that still must be what's doing it

Sunrizing I also have the same problem. I use the same supplements as you do. They are the best I can find.

Oh my gosh yes! I really do feel for ya and believe me I understand too. Its a vicious cycle too. B/c not getting enough sleep often triggers anxiety episodes and anxiety episodes trigger sleeplessness. Here are some things I do to fight this. The BIGGEST number one thing I'll get right to it is supplements. I used to take sleeping pills but they didnt keep me asleep [just like you.] So I heard about Melatonin, by watching Dr.Oz, lol [I love that dude!] And now I take between 1.5mg and 3mg every night about 1 hour before I want to be asleep. Along with that I take a calcium supplement too [w/vitamin D3 and magnesium.] I take my calcium at night b/c its also a natural sleep aid. I find that the melatonin actually helps with anxiety too.

Besides that its all about mood in your bedroom. Make sure when you go to lay down its completely dark in your room b/c any light will register even in your sleep and keep you from reaching that deep deep sleep that you want. Try to have orange light at night in your room and it will help relax you as well. Also take a soothing bath with lavender. Soft music and reading get me really relaxed to and for me i need to be really relaxed before bed not only to get to sleep but to get wouned down enough for that really good and deep slumber.

Hope this helps, hang in there

I heard that it can be a side effect of Anxiety but I try not to look too much into it anymore because of the fact it's turned me into a hypochondriac. But does anyone else have a terrible time trying to get a restful sleep during the nights.

I'm currently taking Cymbalta 30mg in the morning Vistaril 25 mg (3 times a day) and Ativan 0.5 mg (2.5 times a day). And no matter what I seem to try I have no problem falling asleep at night but staying asleep is the problem. I'll wake up to go to the bathroom (my anxiety has caused frequent urination). I'll wake up anticipating the alarm clock. I'll wake up for seemingly no reason at all sometimes and just never be able to get back to sleep. It is absolutely wiping me out during the day time I've already fallen asleep at work a few times now. I just can't seem to stay asleep at nighttime. Does anyone else out there struggle with this?
