I been awake for 3 days. When I finally feel sleepy I end up with anxiety and just lay there for hours. I refuse to take anymore anti anxiety, insomnia meds.
1. Cold Showers: Start off with a comfortable water temperature. Gradually decrease the water temperature. After a few minutes, gradually increase the water temperature back to a comfortable temperature. Take one to two showers like this a day for several weeks to several months.
2. Internal Niacinamide (vitamin B3): Take 100 to 750 mg of vitamin B3 mixed in water. It can also be taken in divided doses of 250 mg of vitamin B3 four times throughout the day. Users have safely been able to take up to two to three grams of B3 a day (high doses may cause nausea). Vitamin B3 can cause a reduction in anxiety within 30 minutes.
3. Lavender Oil (mild effect) or Narcissus Oil (stronger effect) Aromatherapy (reduces depression and anxiety): Apply either or both oils to a cotton ball or tissue and smell and/or freshen the room (in excess can cause sleepiness).
Also avoid caffeine in coffee, soft drinks and chocolate.
Try to burn up the excess adrenaline exercising or playing a sport.
Also try to take a warm bath before sleep.
Perhaps some soft music or some people like to here the white noise sound. Some stores sell white noise sound generators.
Some people also are able to sleep when they wear earplugs.
