    Does anyone get insomnia/poor sleep as a post-exertional symptom?

    Yep.

    Have you noticed what your symptoms are when your insomnia occurs?

    Hmm, basically a wired feeling. Brain is unable to calm down and fall alseep. Of course, I feel worse the next day if I haven't slept well the previous night.

    YES - I have poor feverish sleep with night sweats and body pain, bad nightmares and only "half sleep".

    I have to do very little activity for the next day or two to get my sleep back to "normal".

    yes, usually a bad spell of sleep is a sign of over doing things for me.

    Yep. Me too. If I've overdone it, I have a ton of trouble shaking that wired feeling at night. If I've managed to stay within my comfortable limits, I tend to get to sleep okay.

    Yes.. over doing it can either cause worst insomina issues then I usually have or go the complete opposite other way and cause hypersomina for me. I never know what symptoms Im going to trigger when I over do things.
