Insomnia & Eating Disorder

Lately I haven't been able to sleep at decent hours.I've been staying up until 6 am and waking up at 1 pm.I also haven't been eating much lately.My friends are worried about me and they think that I have insomnia.I don't have caffine often and I have a normal diet.I haven't really felt depressed.When I wake up, I'm not hungry at all.I wouldn't even eat the rest of my cereal (and the bowl wasn't even that big).I don't really feel like myself anymore and I get dizzy when I stand up sometimes.Something is defenitely wrong with me.

Re: Insomnia & Eating Disorder


It is called low blood pressure - that is where the dizziness comes from. Any person that does not eat consistently or eats very little over a long period of time will suffer from low BP.

I think you need to reconsider your eating habits.

One other thing, insomnia is also induced with not eating correctly too.

Good luck

Re: Insomnia & Eating Disorder

Thank you for the information.I really needed it.Now I've recovered from my habit.At first, I was forcing myself to eat; but now I've returned to my normal bottomless-pit self.
