I tried exercise but still I cant sleep and it makes me more tired at the end of the day. I sleep for a very short time, sometimes longer but feels super short. Has anyone tried microcirculation therapy? Does it help? Do you have any remedy that helps you a lot if you happen to have this type of fatigue(mainly bcoz of insomnia)?

I have serious chronic insomnia and have to rely on seroquel,

I get up in about 10 hrs with disturbed sleep and wake few times a night.

Tried several and nothing worked.

Have no idea about circulation.

You can try chamomile tea!

Well, what I know is enhancing microcirculation in the body will increase oxygen-carrying ability and use, deliver nutrients, remove metabolic waste and toxins, and all the good things lol. There are a lot of therapies out there that would help enhance our microcirculation. There are noninvasive therapies as well so you could check with your local clinic or center regarding that. smile and also, with regard to sleep, it's not about quantity, it's about the quality! Sleep Well!!! ")

I came on this certain part of the forum that had the following words(Fatigue due to Insomnia remedies) as its subject, but I have found no talk about 'insomnia remedies' that might be causing 'fatigue,' and especially 'Chronic Fatigue' which I am assuming is what we wake up with in after sleeping what sleep we can get, sometimes taking MANY 'remedies' to try to put us to sleep, hopefully, but not always. The danger in this, as I see, is taking TOO much for our hearts, so we need a definite 'protocol' given by an 'alternative' doctor who knows the ins and outs of what is GOOD for us and what ISN'T. Can anybody help with this? Is there a real alternative doctor on this forum? I have read a post that actually put DOWN alternative medicine, which I thought was odd, being on an ALTERNATIVE CFS forum. The post seemed to be putting doubt in the minds of those of us who are totally THROUGH with CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE as practiced today, with all the drugs that keep on accumulating on the market and in the systems of those who still trust in conventional medicine.

I agree with TALKING,

The issue is that so many things can cause insomnia, without speaking with an alternative medicine doctor who would seek the cause then it would be like throwing arrows in a dark room at a target! It would take a lot of time for you to figure it out. The other alternative is for people with these issues to tests themselves through sites like directlabs or requestatest for common disorders which may emerage as insomnia.
Check your thyroid, iodine levels, Magnesium RBC, zinc, B vitamins, etc... All of these are important for a good sleep and functioning body.

Sometimes I suffer from insomnia.

Or at least did.

Now I take magnesium (teaspoon of powder mixed in water) and a Valerian tea before bed. Passionflower also helps. You can get it in a liquid extract, capsule or tea.

Sleep like a baby thereafter, and don't feel groggy in the morning.

Daily exercise helps too.

Try to avoid medicated sleeping tablets, as they are addictive and hard to wean off.

Good luck

For many years now I've been taking melatonin and L-theanine for sleep. I've heard that as we age our bodies lose the ability to manufacture natural melatonin.

Also if I eat a food that doesn't agree with me during the day such as sugar, I have a lot more difficulty trying to sleep. And I also can not do caffeine.

Over the years, I have had to up my melatonin intake. I now have to take 15 mg. I found I needed to take a larger dosage when my gastronologist talked me into trying another proton pump inhibitor for my gerd, a pill that never seemed to help my condition. I stayed on them a very minimal amount of time. The last time i stayed on the PPI for only one day. Each time I had pretty bad side effects. So, over the years, I went from take 3 mg to 6 mg to 9 mg to 12 mg to 15 mg of melatonin. And all of the needed increases occured while I was trying the PPI. I recently decided I will never try that kind of medication again.

Just to note: As we age we lose our ability to produce natural melatonin in our bodies.

I say all of this because I wanted to point out how careful we need to be when it comes to taking prescribed medications. We need to be our own best detective when it comes to taking care of ourselves. Our doctors are our overseers, but they do not know all especially when it comes to what goes on inside of each of their patient's bodies and also how each of their patients will react to specific medications.
