Sleeplessness

I haven't been sleeping all that great in the past couple of months. I usually go to sleep around 11 PM and wake up at about 5 AM. Lately I've been waking up in the middle of the night from anywhere between 30 and 90 minutes. Sometimes I even wake up twice. I'm on two sleep medications right now, one of which my sleep doctor just changed to a higher dose. When I wake up, I just lay there and think about things. There could be a number of reasons why I wake up but I'm not sure which one it is. I think one thing could be that I get anxiety about not sleeping good which actually could make me wake up. I end up taking a lot of naps during the day to try to catch up. Anyways, I know I just talked about me not sleeping but I just wanted to get it all out again and talk it through. Who knows maybe that'll help me sleep better tonight.

Sounds like you might have sleep apnea... have you been tested for that? I have severe sleep apnea and I end up falling asleep in front of the computer all the time! I was tested for one night and will be on cpap... but then again, you're already on a vent so that can't be it...
