I can believe it, most of the time the "racing thoughts" thing keeps me up. That and if I make it to 1 am, I get a burst, and will stay up until god knows when. But I went for years where when the weather turned over between the seasons I will develop a mild chest congestion/cough that will keep me up as well.

Finally talked to the doctor about it and he said it's due to cool dry air, makes me take a bunch of hot fluids, and has me keep my chest covered up and warm. Or as it is known to me "hell".

It works, but I hate being warm and moist. So I don't really get good sleep anyway, but bad sleep is better than NO sleep or having the wife want to choke me to death.

Well played. The best thing that ever happened to me from a sleep perspective was being diagnosed with sleep apnea. CPAP therapy solved it lickety split.

If only there were some sort of air humidity-maker that you could fill up with water and run all night to remedy that dry air. Since no one has invented one yet, you should try just pouring a bucket of water on the floor and letting evaporation do the rest.

So insomnia is related to sleep apnea? I'll believe that.

Both my Dad and my roommate had wicked insomnia when they were in denial about their sleep apnea. They both had a similar diagnosis of "Lethal Sleep Apnea" and their doctors where surprised they were still alive.

I've been suffering from insomnia lately and I have been blaming it on stress, maybe I should get tested as well considering my family history.

Have one, doctor made a face when I mentioned it, and said something along the lines of "do it if you really want to, but they are breeding grounds for nastiness."

Regular doses of hot soup and tea, while covering up at bedtime works so I don't argue.

found that chronic insomniacs woke an average of about 30 times a night

I don't think mine has anything to do with apnea.

Once I'm asleep, I stay asleep. My problem is with falling asleep in the first place.

Study is right.

My insomnia has everything to do with my fiance's trouble breathing.
