So my anxiety hasn't been too aggressive lately (in that I can usually get through the day well enough), and I think that may be because of my celexa dose becoming regular. But I noticed I've been having more and more trouble getting a good night's sleep. I can't seem to get through the night without waking up at least once and feeling all nervous and scared when I do. I always feel off because I've just woken up, so my brain worries come out in full force. Last night I figured I'd be able to get back to sleep okay, but then I suddenly got bad head pain and I felt like I was tumbling forward every time I laid on my stomach and shut my eyes. I also tend to get hypnogogic hallucinations when I'm anxious and trying to sleep, which doesn't help my worries about schizophrenia (it's hard to sleep when you're worried that random voice you heard talking nonsense for a second is gonna start engaging you one day).
Waking up usually isn't TOO bad, but sometimes I have bad nightmares that send me into a panic (one time I dreamed someone told me some secret about how the world wasn't real and it really upset me). Sometimes I wake up scared in general without reason. Sometimes I wake up with physical symptoms (early on in developing anxiety I woke up once with really tingly limbs all over). It's really driving me nuts and messing with my sleep schedule. Being stressed sucks enough as is, but I need to recharge! My cousin with GAD recommended I take one of my xanax before bed, but my parents don't want me getting addicted (which I doubt would happen, but it's not a fun thought).
Does anybody have any tips for a good nights sleep?
