Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. Insomnia is the inability to get the amount of sleep you need to wake up feeling rested and refreshed. From the given description it seems that you are unable to maintain your sleep because of stress and anxiety.

Emotional issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression cause about half of all insomnia cases. But your daytime habits, bedtime routine, and physical health can also play a major role. Try using a sleep diary to record daily details about your daytime habits, sleep routine, and insomnia symptoms.

Psychological problems that can cause insomnia include depression, chronic stress, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma. Medical problems that can cause insomnia include asthma, allergies, Parkinson’s disease, hyperthyroidism, acid reflux, kidney disease, cancer, and chronic pain. Common medications such as antidepressants, cold and flu medications that contain alcohol, pain relievers that contain caffeine (Midol, Excedrin), diuretics, corticosteroids, thyroid hormone, and high blood pressure medications can also interfere with your sleep.

Adopting new daytime habits, Adopting new habits, Developing new bedtime routines, Relaxation techniques etc. can help you sleep better. Please consult a psychologist for evaluation of your case and for further advise.
