Unsettled naps upto two times a day

Patient

Q: Hello doctor,I have been taking up to two short naps a day for several years,however of late I have felt unsettled and "nervy"upon awakenig,can you tell me why this may be?

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. There isn't any serious sleep disorder associated with what you are experiencing when you awake. It is possible that the anxious, 'nervy' feeling you have been experiencing upon awakening may be due to stress and anxiety throughout your day. We would like you to take a careful look at your level of stress throughout the day. Try to avoid drinking excessive amounts of caffeine as a means of assisting yourself in having a restful sleep as well.
