Might sound a silly question but are you sleeping in a dark room or do you have light coming in somewhere? If I sleep with my blackout blinds down I can sleep okay but occasionally I have them slightly up and then I can't get to sleep and wake earlier? Just a thought. Guess you've tried the usual remedies of hot milk, chamomile tea, counting sheep or any other mind numbingly boring subject?? Just read in March's 'Healthy' mag. : take warm bath with Dead sea salts to relax muscles; sleep on your back to rest organs; add few drops Lavender to your bath or sprinkle on your pillow; do some gentle exercise maybe an hour before bedtime. Hope one of these might help. Barbara

Hi Barbara

thanks for you comments, all that does make sense, I cant sleep on my back(back probs) but I do have lots good pillows to support my body, I have the V pillow for my neck(cerv spondy) arthritis in the whole of the spine! regards the light, I have to have it black, and your right, the slightest bit of light wakes me up, so I have the sleeping goggles thingymajigs lol... Im begining to think its the Meds, cos im lucky enough to not have to many worries in life that distrupt sleep, except for the Health conditions.... anyway, thanks for taking the time, and I do need More Lavender drops LOL
