One of my main problems with Low T, and one of the big three, is hours of sleep and sleep quality. Most of my life I've never had sleeping problems and was famous for being able to sleep through anything. Tons of dreams, long hours, etc. I still fall asleep quite easily..always have. I normal go to sleep about 10pm and nothing wakes me up for anywhere between 2-4 hours. Go to the bathroom because I have a slight urge and don't want to worry about getting up in a few more hours. Basically can't make it through the night. I also drink a ton of water during the day and take a quart cup to bed with me each night. Anther old habit I've done since a kid. Anyway my main problem is trying to go back to sleep after waking. My mind will often go into hyper gear thinking about all kinds of things and not necessarily worrying, although that happens too often as well.
I also was taking aleve before bed and a 25 mg benadryl cap after waking up. I stopped taking aleve about a week ago and the benadryl a few nights ago.
I was wondering if anyone has used cortisol inhibitors and found them useful.
Btw, last night I had one of the best quality sleep nights in a long time relatively speaking and i think it is the result of some of the positive changes I've been making. So that is encouraging. Also, I've noticed a positive pattern of better Androgel impact and better nights of sleep. This morning the gel impact would rank on a relative scale of 9-10 since I've been using it.
