When I am on a regular exercise routine, I have problems falling asleep at night. These problems normally only come when I start exercising regularly. When I do not get much or any exercise, I don’t have these troubles getting to sleep. If I want to be able to start sleeping normally again, I have to pretty much cut out exercise. A few days after I cease to exercise, I will slowly be able to start sleeping normally. In general, when I start exercising routinely my health really starts to take a dive. I think it is probably related to the sleeping problems that go with it, but unsure.
Also, when I workout heavily I usually start to get headaches(i think migraines, but unsure also). They can last for hours sometimes. I’ve seen my doctor a few times about it, and he really has no clue. (he is an HMO doctor, he tries to get me in and out as soon as possible). Maybe someone here could help me out. I also have this problem & I know of at least one other person who does. Have to exercise no later than about 1pm or I’m wide awake & won’t get to sleep till about 4 in the morning … the only solution short of doping yourself up seems to be to exercise very early. Maybe taking less agressive exercise would help – also with the headaches as well.
