Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
I understand that you are going through a difficult time due to your inability to sleep properly. Now, difficulty in sleeping (known as "insomnia" ) can be due to a variety of causes. Some of the problems causing insomnia are:
- Poor sleep habits
- Other medical problems, chronic pain
Now, the first step in managing insomnia is a detailed assessment to establish the probable cause. It is not wise to just take sleeping tablets without making a proper assessment and identifying a cause. So, I would advise you to see a psychiatrist
for a detailed assessment and further management.
Following strict sleep hygiene
techniques like fixing specific timings for going to sleep and waking up, avoiding coffee, tea, caffeinated drinks or alcohol, doing regular physical exercise and practicing relaxation techniques
like yoga or meditation
can all hep in improving sleep.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
