Question: Is there any research out there about sleep difficulties and Attention Deficit? I have had sleep issues all my life, but now in my early 40s it is getting worse. A good night is 5 hours. I wake up continually all night, and even though I remember dreams, I feel as if I have not slept at all. I can start dreaming as soon as I fall asleep so I know I am REM sleep deprived. It is as if my brain never totally relaxes.
I have been told by two different GPs that I probably have ADD. It has been like this for a year, with some relief in the darker winter months (makes me wonder if it is related to light). Also last winter, I experimented for 2 months with brain wave entrainment and my sleep did get better, but again during the winter months. Any research about this as well?
