How many of you guys are really noise sensitive and wake up at sudden, loud noises and cant get back to sleep? Ive been sick for 15 years, hit a really bad stage, have worked my way back up shaking off many unpleasant symptoms, but i cant seem to shake this one just yet. Ive tried ear plugs and white noise and melatonin etc., but its more important for me to be sleeping a relatively quiet place free from sudden loud noises like close vicinity screaming kids or barking dogs. Once i hear it, im shocked awake and cant get back to sleep. I assume it is adrenal related--i have severe adrenal fatigue (fluctuating body temp and HIGH cortisol) and my body clock is arwy despite my efforts to get up early and sleep early. I try and exercise during day -walks and muscle work- and i try and relax and mediate before bed, but when im woken, i mediate to sleep and then, im woken again. Its so distressing and mediating can be so hard sometimes when exhausted. anyone else have this at the moment? note: been offered sleep pills but i hate them!
