I've had various incarnations of insomnia on and off for 11 years. I am a 33-year-old womam who's had anxiety her whole life. In the last two years, I wake up with a rapid heartbeat and a tremendous strain in my eyes - as if my eyes have been darting around all night. I am exhausted. I could sleep for 12 hours, but when I wake up like this, I am useless. My head often hurts, my eyes are watery and I am fatigued. It feels like insomnia of some kind, but I am not aware of being "up" during the night. I'm at a loss for what to do. I feel like a zombie all day long. Any advice? Thank you.

You do not say if you are taking any meds for sleep & if you are under a doctors care. If not, I would see a neurologist or if you could see a sleep specialist that woukd be even better.
