Hey I have had insomnia for about 3-4 months now, however I just went to Japna for 2 weeks and during that time, only taking an ambien CR each night, slept fine every night. As soon as I returned home though, very hard time sleeping again. That is just some background, here is what I wanted to ask about:
Often when trying to go to sleep before leaving Japan and since I have gotten back I have hot flashes (I think thats what they are) and the right side of my head gets really hot internally or so it feels. Also just to confirm: heat flashes are when you're body pusles with like sweat? Thats whats happening to me, for a split second I'll all of a sudden feel really hot and like I sweated for a split second too. I had this happen a lot before leaving for Japan too, I thought it was anxiety, but then after coming back from Japan and knowing I can sleep and not having a negative attitude it still happened when I lie down, my heart rate seems to increased too. Anyone ever have something like this? I am just wondering if it's not anxiety, yet I didn't have it in Japan so it would seem to be 100% mental, yet when not even worrying about trying to sleep my first day back it still freaking happened.
