Can't Stay Asleep

Weeks ago I was having anxiety attacks every day (first day July 4) and it lasted up until 4 weeks ago or so. Well during that time I had trouble falling asleep but not that I haven't been having the anxiety attacks I can't stay alseep.

I have no trouble falling asleep but it seems like a few hours (I don't look at the clock so it doesn't keep me awake) into sleep I have a spurt where I wake up 4 or 5 times in a very short amount of time. I have no trouble falling back asleep after these but it gets furstrating waking up so often during sleep. I also think it causes me to feel sleepy during the day although I am sure being bored all day doesn't help either.

I realize that as you get older you wake up more during the night but I am still only a teen. Do you think these awakenings could be stress related or something else? Any opinions would be appreciated

Re: Can't Stay Asleep

Hi there! What was going on right before you started having anxiety attacks? Stress can certainly cause sleep problems. Are you on any medication? Are you drinking a lot of caffene (sodas and what not)?

We'll get to the bottom of this! I'll do my best to help you out.
