Not sleeping past couple of days
Here goes. Last week I was doing fine. My period was late. By Thursday, I had a cry to my husband scared if I was pregnant again. We have two wonderful boys. But I am 39 and both times I went through post partum anxiety. With great treatment, I was off meds in less than a year both times.
Friday, I took a pregnancy test. It was negative. I cried to my husband of relief. I went to lay down and then my period came. I laughed to my husband as it was funny that it came after I took the test. Friday night, I could not sleep. I had sweats, hot flashes, chest pain. Ugh. Anxiety like the post partum is back. I did not cry. I just felt anxious and wanted to see what help I could get on Saturday. My primary doctor and ob/gyn were closed. I went to a meditation class. It helped but I know one class will not help me. I went and purchased melatonin and I went to the gym and did cardio. I work out 5 days a week and I do not have problems falling asleep.
I relaxed Saturday night. The chest pains were gone. I took melatonin and did went into a drowsy state. By 3 am, I believe I slept. I felt good and happy the next day. No chest pains all day Sunday. I went to bed. I did not take melatonin. I was tired. I could not sleep. I would get up and go downstairs. The chest pain came back. I was up. i took a melatonin but it did not help. i am frustrated. I do focus on sleep and I think I created myself undo stress. How do I regain what I had before Friday?
