Can't sleep more than 2-3 hours in a row. HELP
Alright, so this has been going on for roughly 3 months now, and is getting ridiculous. Typically I have no problem getting to sleep, but I constantly wake up throughout the night after 2-3 hours. The good news is that I am waking during dreams (REM), but it feels like I haven't or rarely get into stage 4 restorative rest. The odd night I will get 5 hours in a row and it is absolute bliss, but this is once in a blue moon. Now, I avoid caffeine for the most part and do not want to go down the drug route to augment my sleep. This will only build up a debt, which will cause more problems down the line. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
-- Also, I forgot to mention, that I've been exercising daily to try and tire myself out; but still cannot remain asleep.
