Suggest treatment for sleep disorder

Dear Doctor, I have been suffering from sleep disorder for the last 5-6 years. I get sleep at night, but when I wake up in the morning, I feel that I did not sleep entire night. I feel that I worked entire night. I feel fatigue, weakness, irritation in the eyes that I did not sleep. I would not get any freshness and energy due to sleep. I feel in the moring and in day also that my feet are hot. I feel comfortable when I pore water on to my feet. I feel thirsty in the night and feel dry in the mouth and throat. I feel urination in the night. In the day also, when I sleep, I do not get freshness and energy. I get irritation in the eyes. I have been loosing my weight and my ageing is happening by leaps and bounds. When this problem newly started I used to snore at night as my life partner used to say. But she says now that I do not snore. This problem of sleep disorder started all of a sudden 5-6 years ago when I needed to study over night when I was preparing for and exam. At that time, I controlled my sleep to for study purpose in the night. I did well in the exam, but my problem started from that time only. From my child hood i.e from the age of 16 I have been suffering from anxiety and usually get easily depressed for the small problem and unnecessarily worried. Please help in the diagnosis and the place of treatment. I am Mr. B.P.Thirupalu from India(AGRA). I am of 40 years old. I am male. Height is 167 cm and weight is 69 kg. I have cosulted many a doctor in in India and used homeo and allopathic medicines.

Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. The problem you are facing is not sleep disorder but minimal OCD. You are obsessed with the thought of having troublesome sleep and you are getting anxious. Such an anxiety robs you from the pleasure of sound sleep. Even though you had sound sleep, you are cheating yourself thinking that you did not. Obsessive thoughts. Change your mind for better. Concentrate on your job. Relaxation techniques before sleep brings relaxation to you and you shall get up relaxed in the morning.

If you require more of my help in this aspect, Please post a direct question to me in this website. Make sure that you include every minute details possible. I shall prescribe some psychotherapy techniques which should help you cure your condition further.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
