Our expert says:
One should first exclude physical causes of restless sleep, this can be pain, getting up too often to go to the toilet, cramps, hayfever, snoring. Your Gp should examine you and attend to any or all of these problems if they exist. Then one needs to look at whether you are anxious or depressed and treat this as possible cause. Seeing a psychologist to teach you relaxation techniques may be very useful. One should also avoid stimulants like caffeine (coffee, sigarettes, coke, red bull, grandpa headache powders etc)
