    Trying to find out if anyone else is experiencing the same thing I am. For the past two months I've been consistently waking up at the same times. Once at 11:10 and at 1:30ish. Every night this happens and it started out of nowhere. Often times I may be able to fall back asleep after the first round but typically I can't go back to sleep after the second bout. I'm physically active, don't drink caffeine past 2PM and I've got a comfortable bed. I've tried just going to sleep later but that hasn't helped.

    Anyone have some insight?

    Well, it is a good time of night to look for fellow insomniacs lol.
    I got nothing for you tho...sorry. Ever tried melatonin? Helps sometimes. Usually stress/worry is what keeps me up.

    I usually pop a few before going to bed. Definitely helps with getting to sleep. Staying asleep is a different story.

    Are you waking up to pee or just waking up?

    Try a nightcap? The liquid kind.

    I have sporadic sleep issues too from time to time. Chugging a beer or 2 before bed or a shot of liquor sometimes helps. I think it helps me relax or care less about whatever is on my mind.

    I do this when I have a lot going on at work. I don't have an answer for it as I still do it occasionally.

    Could be other things but more than likely its stress from some area of your life. Work, family, etc. Might need an hour before bed every night to mull things over, pray, or just read an easy book. Been there, done that and will again at some point Im sure.

    Thanks for the insight so far, everyone. Stress may be the problem, I think. Been freaking out about life since my birthday, which is when it all started

    Exercise helps me. I do a few laps around my neighborhood in the evening. I seem to think it all out when I do that and definitely sleep better.
