The most important treatment is something called sleep hygeine
OK ... what is this Doctor ???
This means that you need to the following
First, fix a time to sleep and get up
Avoid napping in the day
Avoid the following 4-6 hours before bedtime
that is a challenge for me as i dnt follow a fix time to sleep... Usually post 11 pm
tea, coffee, alcohol. spicy and sugary foods
Exercise regularly but not just before bed time
Next, use the bed only for sleeping
Dont use it to work
Try and block all noise and light
They would help you relax
i do suffer from Nasal blocks very frequently and recently i took a prescription for the same from an ENT ...
that could contribute
Was the treatment effective?
the sleepless XXXXXXX is there before i had started the treatment ...
not that much ...
Where do you stay?
I stay in XXXXXXX ...
lets finish the sleep hygeine part,
we'll then address this
Warm milk and bananas are also said to help people sleep
A warm bath and some reading also can help
Did you follow what I said?
