    Have you been sleeping during the day at all? Speaking to your GP is probably the best bet if you genuinely have not slept at all but if you've been sleeping during the day then try and get yourself back into a 'normal' routine by forcing yourself to stay awake all day and then going to bed at 10pm ish and staying there until whatever time in the morning you would normally get up and forcing yourself to stay awake all day etc.

    Yeah you should go and get some advice. Not being able to sleep is one of the worst things ever I think, and when it starts to catch up with you over a few days or a week, it feels even worse.

    I'm surprised you lasted that long ;o

    Do you do much during the day? Is there anything in particular playing on your mind and stopping you sleeping?

    I take it you decided you didn't need your anonymity?

    Like the others have said speak to a doctor but in the meantime you could try valarian. Capsules from health food shops and tea from supermarkets.

    Meditation and relaxation techniques work as well. Try a CD from a bookshop or webpage.

    in the evening try keeping lighting dim and tv music etc quiet to help your body relax, then when you do try to sleep you will already be relaxed so it will be easier to get to sleep.

    Every time I say this in related threads, my reply gets deleted but honestly there was a phase like this for me and it worked. Are you a guy? If so, masturbate. Spank the bishop, monkey bash, make sure your boat is well afloat. I hear it's a natural sleep aid.

    I have this problem too. The trick is to try and wear yourself out in the day. For a short-term fix though, Nytol works a treat, and isn't harmful for short-term use.

    The doctor may not do much to help, it depends how severe they think it is and what's causing it. They may give you some tablets, but they may just talk to you about how to unwind. I can fully sympathise as I've got insomnia and have had 2 hours sleep almost every night this week.

    If you haven't got a lot to do then maybe you need to keep more occupied. I usually find having nothing to do makes me more tired though! Make sure you keep your running as a daytime activity and don't do anything a few hours before bed. I sometimes find getting away from the computer or TV an hour before bed helps.
