I’m not sure if this is the right forum to post this as this is only partially related with supplementation but here we go.
Although I have hardly ever had problems falling asleep in the past, I once had an episode a few weeks ago.
At 3 am my mind was active, although I had been trying to fall asleep since 11 pm and I was feeling very uncomfortable in bed as I was getting waves of hot that I can’t really find a way to accurately describe. I tried turning off the radiator in my room and slightly opening the window but nothing changed, and that night I ended up changing bed and sleeping shirtless and sheetless (mind you, it was November and otherwise very cold).
I tried supplementing melatonin after that and I virtually never had problems since. Except for some nights, like this one: I’m lying in bed and finding it impossible to fall asleep even though I’ve always had very regular circadian rhythms. Melatonin doesn’t seem to be doing it and I still find the bed uncomfortably hot.
Also I get emotional over it because I always feel like if I don’t get at least 7 hrs of sleep I’ll be in trouble with recovery and muscle growth etc. so I’m really stressing over this and as the clock runs I get more and more nervous.
