Hello. For a long time (since puberty, now i'm 30) i've been having a problem falling asleep. Before, i was able to wake up rested when sleeped long enough. Rested means for me, that i don't feel that my head is "heavy", i don't yawn entire day and simply i don't think about how i'm sleepy and tired entire day.. (when i don't sleep long enough, i also have other troubles - white "dead" face, my skin, mainly on face, is burning or how to describe it and my brain is just not working..and my hair falls which make me angry..) But now, i'm able to get that rest only occasionally. Sometimes on weekends, when i can sleep longer, it's a total dissaster. I'm a living zombie for the entire day. But sometimes i will get some rest, but don't feel refreshed, have only little energy. Also i don't feel sleepy in the evening - i can work/watch tv till 3-4am, when my eyes starts to burn, but am just not sleepy. But I'm trying to go to bed before 22 and with a help of melatonin can fall asleep before 1. Now what happened to me maybe only 4 times (yes, so rare) when i was trying to fall asleep is this sudden burst of "something" which i felt mainly in the head. I could almost feel like something was spilling there. Suddenly i was feeling like after a hour nap in the times when i was young. Clear mind and energy... Like my brain was suddenly unlocked. Maybe i can compare it to when you have an urge to pee and then you finally do it.. And i for certain can tell, i had not microsleep. Could this be some hormone, or what it was?
