Recently I've had a lot of problems sleeping. It's only ever happened when I'm concerned about the health of family members. Their health is never in such a vulnerable state that it's natural not to sleep, they just have the flu or something. About half 7 I start to feel nauseous and then I feel that way all through the night until about 3am when I can usually sleep peacefully. I shiver a lot, my legs, torso and hands mainly and feel sick in waves. I've never actually vomited from it though.
I recently had glandular fever and have my final a level exams coming up which could be causing me more stress than I'm used to.
Does this sound like something anxiety related or something entirely different?
Def sounds like anxiety to me!!! I would have lots of trouble sleeping worrying about family etc and your mind has the largest effect over your tummy / gut. Huge Mind/ Body connection there. Try to relax, make sure you burn off that extra energy by getting some workouts in :)
I agree with dolphin that definetly sounds like anxiety. Last month I had the same feelings. I couldn't sleep for 3 days straight. Every night I felt like I was in pure hell my heart beat was fast every 20 minutes my chest and arm were hurting I was shaking so much even though it wasn't cold loss of appetite loss of interest in things you like. Feeling nauseous and dizzy. Anxiety causes a lot of physical symptoms, it's crazy. I realized I needed to go out for a walk 1 hour a day plus bed time yoga at night. It relieves me. At night I read my bible and drink chamomile tea with lemon. This helps so much it's not even funny. I don't get up at all during my sleep I sleep like a baby. Before, I used to get up 2 or 3 times for things. Now, I go to bed at 10 and wake up at 6:30-7;00 am. Please try yoga. Research shows yoga relieves stress and anxiety by 30%. Also taking in ALOT of magnesium (your daily amount) can really help anxiety, stress, depression. Please get better, I'm sorry for your family not feeling well. God bless <3 *hugs*
