Please tell me why im waking up at 3 am every night
« on: May 22, 2010, 05:59:15 PM »
For the last 3 weeks, every night from 3-4 ill wake up and sometimes hard to fall back asleep. I'm so scared that this is part of cancer or a brain tumor. I've never heard of anyone ever having this.

Something is definitly wrong. Its not normal to wake up like that and I'm serious about 20 nights in a row.  My doctor when I called him he said "it happens". It can't just happen to me. I'm bringing this along with my other symptoms and its telling me its testicular cancer or something serious.

I don't know what causes it but insomnia is a symptom of anxiety and I've woken up really really early in the morning often too.

i know this can happen for no reason
like your body just gets used to waking up at a certain time and it keeps happening over and over
especially with anxiety

I wake up like 8 times a night, and it`s been like that for at least 15 years. brain tumor, testicular cancer (i`m scared of having penis cancer at the moment by the way)??? Sorry I smiled a little, in a good way, how did you come up with that?

Miika, I have few other symptoms thinking I have test cancer. I listed it in my other person. Idk I don't even know if waking up like that is symptom of it I'm just assuming. And I have a swollen lymph node on the back right side of my head. I'm connecting everything to each other.

I understand the connecting everything to each other part, it sucks. But trust me, waking up 3:30 at every night and testicular cancer have absolutely no connection  :happy0151:

Hi Valley,

I am female  :yes: and I'm often up at 3:00 AM and have been up several times before that time as well  most nights.  I've been doing this for about 14 years now.  I don't think it has anything to do with testicular cancer.  I do think lack of sleep also contributes to my anxiety and depression.

If you drink alcohol, that will interrupt your sleep.  So can caffeine, obviously, and eating late and then going to bed. 

Good luck and good night!

I also have been getting strange random pains in like my jaw and teeth, and my head. Its strange. I wish I can find a good site of anxiety symptoms that don't just happen during panic attacks but overall.

Hey Valley-

Waking up multiple times is a sure sign of anxiety. Reading your posts and worries now about test cancer demonstrates to me that you're in a very high anxiety state. The mind really can mess w/you when you're stressed or anxious. Like optimistic said, you should really discontinue caffeine, alcohol and other stimulants until your anxiety level returns to more normal levels.
I was just reading something today where they said that many people who were diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, discontinued all caffeine and the anxiety went away. Alcohol is also a drug that can really mess with your sleep. Google alcohol and insomnia and you'll see what I mean.

I hope your anxiety calms down soon.

3:00 is a special time for your body... seriously!  I mentioned this once to my massage therapist and he said to cut out booze and to drink water with lemon in it for a week and then see if it got better.  Sure enough, it did!  around 3am, people with normal sleep lives, our bodies do a lot of dietary detoxing.  By cutting out the caffeine and booze, and drinking lemon water to help your body perform this task, you'll be less likely to wake up.

Noahs mom. Yeh I've been drinking a lot of beer the last few weeks. I don't drink much caffeine though. I will stop the beer and drink water with lemon.

I also wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning pretty regularly.  It's annoying but I'm not stressed about it.  I also get jaw/teeth/head pain.  Apparently another symptom of anxiety is teeth clenching/grinding, which is the cause of the pain.  I didn't know I did it until my dentist pointed it out.
