I think you should try everything natural before anything chemical!! Once you know you´ve done all the natural stuff and you still can´t get sleep - i would try something stronger. Tried everything like hot bath, warm milk with honey, sex, regular excersize (or just regular daily activity) getting up at the same time every day ect?
I have crazy insomnia. I slept for 26 hours, woke up at 1am now it´s 5 am (live in England) and I could sleep again. A few days ago i was awake 3 days with just 5 hours of sleep spread across them. Once I was awake 5 days straight ( i was going NUTS!).
I dont do anything for it though. Partly because Im that apathetic about it, way too used to it and because I believe it´s just my fault because Im not active enough in the day, too lazy and not diciplined enough to have a regular sleeping pattern. I´ve been like this since I got my last tick bite (I was 10). I think perhaps I should stop blaming myself and realize that it´s because of lyme and maybe not just me being pathetic and lazy... I found out i had lyme this summer (im 21), so I´ve been talking down to myself for years. thought patterns are hard to change
