Sporadic Fatal Insomnia?? only 24

Hopefully a doctor can answer my question,
Recently i have not been able to sleep, it started out where I could not sleep more than 3 hours a night and got worse.  I started to take ambein which helped me initially to sleep but i still wake up early around 7am and toss and turn the rest of the morning.   I am also have body twitches all day long, anxiety, and twitching at night.   The constant twitching and only sleeping a little(only due to ambein) scares me.  If i didn't have ambein i would not sleep a wink every night.   Do you think i could actually have early symptoms of SFI?   Also I have had a little history of sleep problems but nothing like this, and never these body twitches all day!

Your doctor would need to determine what is causing the twitching, since it could be related to anxiety. Anxiety can also cause insomnia. Sporadic fatal insomnia is extremely rare and unlikely but only your doctor can answer these questions by evaluating you.
