    Noise Making Me Nauseous - Caused by Lack of Sleep? Stress?
    Sammurai711 posted:
    I have anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, and cronic acid reflux -among other issues- so sleeping has been an issue for me a lot in the past. Usually I have troubles getting to sleep and I wake up in the middle of the night, and for a few months now I have been dreaming of work (homework, cleaning, nit picky things). But both last night and the night before I only slept for 3 hours. Today my head has been throbbing, with pain in the back of my eyes (kind of like staring at a bright screen in a dark room for too long), and I became super sensative to all noises. It sounds strange, and is really had to explain, but it feels like some noises are effecting my stomach, making me feel nausus. I'm not sure what to make of it, it really is quiet strange. Any insight as to what's going on?

    Fatigue can cause all sorts of things. Hi, Sammurai, it's now over a week later... how are you doing?

    Are you being treated for your anxiety, etc.?

    I would look up symptoms for naracolepsy and see if they are similar to your situation. Also, I would write down everything and then visit a sleep specialist.
