Sleep disturbances

I will tell you what happens to me. I will go to sleep at night and then about a half and hour to an hour later, I wake up feeling very nervous and when i try to go back to sleep, its like im half a sleep and i have weird "dreams" but im not totally asleep. I cant fall into a deep sleep. It feels like I have low blood sugar but I dont cause i check it. This has been happening like 2-3 times a week. I feel like Im delerious like when i have a fever but im not sick. So, if anyone in here has diabetes....can low or high blood sugar cause sleep disturbances? Or is it my hormones? Thank you!

Re: Sleep disturbances

It sounds pretty normal if you are undergoing menopause. Try to stay busy during the day and get a warm bath/shower 2, 3 hours before bedtime.

If you are diabetic, you might want to check with your doctor and get it under control.

Re: Sleep disturbances

Thanks Jackie. I did have a hyster. about 7 months ago. So if it sounds normal to you then maybe that is what it is. I am getting blood sugar checked this morning. Thanks.

Re: Sleep disturbances

I feel like this at least once a week now too. Actually, I went through this last night/ this morning. It is really driving me crazy. I go to bed & fall asleep for maybe an hour then I wake up sorta anxious. I end up looking at the alarm clock & tossing & turning all night. My belly flip flops & I feel tense. I end up out on the couch so I don't disturbe my husband's sleep. Then I give up & end up staying up come 5 in the morning & by 8 am I am ready to crash. Of course, a nap would be easy if I didn't have a busy little person here that keeps me from taking one. I don't have full blown diabetes but have been diagnosed with prediabetes. I just had my levels checked a little over a week ago & it was 100 which my Dr said is high-normal & doesn't yet require meds. I really have no idea yet on if it is related to the ERT or just me. I had my LSH/BSO two months ago & I'm sure my body is still adjusting.

Are you using HRT?

Re: Sleep disturbances

Nope. I dont use any HRT but have been using the over the counter Estroven. I just got back my blood results and my sugars are normal so i guess it has to be hormonal. Very frusterating!

Re: Sleep disturbances

I experienced similar sleep problems before my hysterectomy while I was in perimenopause and my ovaries were shutting down. Since my surgery I've worn the Vivelle dot patch .1 and I sleep very well now.
I hope you find some relief soon.

Re: Sleep disturbances

Soulwinner~Glad to hear your blood sugars are normal. It is frustrating though not to have an answer or cure to the problem. I had another sleepless night last night & now feel like I have absolutely no energy today. I didn't notice but did you kept your ovaries or not.

Hi,
I'm on hrt. was balanced for 2-3 years then my hormones crashed after some intense physical and mental stress. Its was really bad around this past thanksgiving and christmas.. My sleep is so inconsistent despite being on hrt and a small dose of zoloft and small 1/2 of an anxiety pill. After 3 gyns I went to a nurse Practitioner, she had me do a saliva test. I have had numerous blood tests by gyns. I am on climara and compounded progesterone. I can't fall asleep or stay asleep. I get broken sleep. I don't know if I need more or less hormones?????? something needs tweaking before I lose my patience and my mind

Re: Sleep disturbances

I just had a complete hysterectomy on the 11th so this is all pretty new to me. I chose not to take hormones since my hot flashes weren't too bad and I thought I could handle it but I have learned a whole new meaning to the term "mood swings" and this is the second night in a row that I have only gotten a couple hours of restless sleep.
