Waking up and then falling back asleep 30 mins-1 hour later
Patient :For the last 3-4 months I have noticed I have been having a problem sleeping. Not actually getting asleep but fighting the urge to go back to sleep in the morning. I usually go to bed at 9.30-10.30 the latest; I do not sleep with any technology in my room. I wake up around 6-6.30am have breakfast but then after breakfast I find myself going back to sleep, if I didn't have work I will probably sleep through but I make myself get up around 7.45-8am.
I believe I am a generally healthy person, I exercise (yoga and boxing) at least twice a week and make sure I find 30 every day by walking. I try and eat as healthy as possible and I don’t go out as often on the weekends. I used to receive treatment for acupuncture and I will be starting that again shortly.
What is my body telling me and how do I help/fix it?
Symptoms: Waking up for about 30mins-1hour and then falling back into a deep sleep
You are suffering from insomnia or sleep deprivation. You seem to be even suffering from effects of sleep deprivation. Since you have healthy habits, you might be suffering from stress or depression. It would have been better if you mentioned the reason for being treated for acupuncture. Avoid stressful life. Avoid tea, coffee and other beverages. Practice regular meditation. Consult a psychologist for further advise.
