To GIGIG, I am studying a new (to me) course in sleep. It says we sometimes spend too much time in bed. Especially if we are having trouble falling asleep. I know I do this a lot because of waking up multiple times a night and feeling I need more sleep come morning. If you are not getting your deep sleep and rem sleep during the first few hrs of sleep, you will spend too much time in light sleep and feel tired no matter how much you sleep. Has to do with our brain waves during sleep. more later, gotta get to bed. emoticon emoticon

I'm with you celticcat! I have been taking melatonin, but I might need to go back to neurosleep. There was something about the drink that helped me get more relaxing and better sleep than just the melatonin. I have other health problems, so by the middle of the week, I'm exhausted, even though I'm sleeping enough.

I think what you can try to do - keep good sleeping pattern and don't rush to get that 8 hours sleep. Start with say, 5hrs then add half hour till you get 8 hours daily, similar like increasing workout minutes - that what I'm currently doing and I think it's working, getting more rested and less sleepy. Taking short naps in afternoon when can't lift up the heavy eyelids is good. Sleeping till 10am, 12pm is bad idea - makes terrible headaches and weaker body.

Sleep disorders are covered under Cigna, Blue Cross, and most medical plans. Worth doing. I learned that I wake myself 1.7 times an hour because of leg movement and 11 times an hour because of upper airway resistance.

One visit to an ENT and one sleep study. I can look up the out of pocket if you're interested.

I usually exercise before I go into work, in the early afternoon. I've been trying for the past few days to make myself exercise as soon as I wake up when I'm still feeling tired, and that seems to be helping a lot. I'm planning on going to the doctor soon and having my thyroid checked. Thanks for all the advice!

Hi getitgetitgirl, At what time are you exercising? Because if you are exercising near the time you go to sleep that can make you be exhausted in the morning. Maybe you have sleep apnea, I do and it takes a toll on me, because you think you are sleeping 8hrs but the truth is that you're not. Try talking to your doctor he/she might be able to help too. Hope you get your answer soon. Take care and God bless.

Well I had been waking up a lot during the night until I started exercising regularly, and now I sleep much better and usually don't wake up at all. I don't snore at all, so I don't think it can be from that or sleep apnea. But I've got an appointment coming up soon and I'm planning on asking about it then. Thanks!

Hi, just wondering if you are waking up during the night? Also wondering if you snore or maybe have sleep apnea? I would talk to your doctor and see what he/she has to say.

I am so happy to hear that you are getting 8 hours of sleep, I wish I could say that!!

I hope you find out what's going on soon.

For the past two weeks I've been trying to get myself on a routine sleep schedule, and I've been doing well. I've been getting into bed within a half hour of my goal time every night and I've been sleeping at least 8 hours every night. But when I wake up, I'm still exhausted and it takes me two or three hours to wake up and really getting going. Any ideas on why I'm still so exhausted?
