It's apparently just in her head and she gets herself wound up about it and cannot fall asleep. We've tried music or books by iPod, or just rubbing her back (for hours). Looking for similar experiences and hopefully resolution.

Dear TimothyD58,

Hello and thank you for posting. I have some articles that may be helpful:

However, I would encourage you to talk this over with her doctor. He or she should be able to give you some recommendations on helping her sleep.

Hopefully, some of our other members can share their tips with you, too.

Write back and let us know how she's doing,

Byroney
