Night Eating Syndrome
An_247489 posted:
I use a CPAP for Sleep Apnea but I still wake constantly throughout the night and must eat something (preferably candy) to get back to sleep. This is not just an inability to control my eating. It is mandatory. I don't need to eat a meal or anything like that. I need candy or crackers or something carbohydrate related. I have read about NES and think that's what I'm struggling with but what do I do about it? What really works to make this go away. I've struggled with it for years but it keeps escalating and I need some sleep. Anyone have similar experiences and found solutions?
