    Can anxiety throughout the day cause sleep-maintenance insomnia as well, or just anxiety as you are trying to get to sleep?

    I always thought that my sleep-maintenance problems were not attributable to anxiety (but were rather something physiological/nutritional/etc.) because I am always able to make sure that I am not worrying about anything right as I was going to sleep. However, I am a very anxious person (I...

    Sleep-maintenance problems almost every night for five years

    I've had ongoing sleep maintenance problems for five years where I repeatedly wake up throughout the night, around 10 - 20 times. Usually I can get back to sleep as soon as I wake up, but the more times I wake up throughout the night the harder it is to go back to sleep, and I end up not getting...

    Can't tell whether i have sunburn or dermatitis

    I usually don't wear sunscreen because it almost always gives me dermatitis on my face, and so when I go outside I cover my face with a mask and wear a hat. However, I found a sunscreen that wasn't causing any type of reaction so I was going out just with sunscreen on my face (and sunglasses so...

    I don't understand how electrolyte tablets are useful when they contain such low electrolytes

    Hi. I've been looking up electrolyte tablets so that I can keep my electrolyte levels stable throughout the day (as I sweat a lot when I move around all day - I don't know why) and also for when I play tennis. However, almost every pack of electrolyte tablets (that from what I can understand are...

    Just had a coke with my meal for the first time in 3 years and it made my meal taste awful

    Hi. I felt like having a fizzy, sugary drink so thought I would buy a coke and try it with my meal for the first time in three years to see what would happen and while it was nice it made my sushi (which I usually really like) taste sticky and tasteless. I'm not doing that again. I've been...

    Lost 3 cms in height over last year

    I'm sure I remember that I was always 182 cms without shoes on, but around a month ago I was shocked to see that I am now only 179 cm. I've read that this is possible with a Vitamin D deficiency. I tend to avoid the sun as much as possible (because I can't wear sunscreen on my face) and have...

    High blood pressure on low salt diet

    Hi everyone. I realized not long ago that hyponatremia may have been causing many of my problems, and have since started adding salt to my meals again. However, what I find strange is that when I was putting no salt on my meals, my blood pressure was 140/78. Then, when I started increasing my...

    Why does salt make me feel full?

    Does anyone know why adding salt to my meals makes me feel progressively fuller and make me stop eating at an earlier point? When I don't put any salt in my meals it seems like I never stop eating because I never feel satisfied and full. I just find it strange because I'm aware that the...

    Putting salt on my meals cured most of my problems

    I posted a problem I was having on here a few months ago about how I was getting constant diarrhoea either in the middle of meals or just after eating. I was also feeling really lethargic right after eating and would have to lie down afterwards for a while after meals. I also never, ever felt...

    Never feel full with plant-based diet

    Hi, I've been whole-food plant-based for about two and a half years now, and am seriously considering incorporating some animal foods back into my diet (even though I am well aware that they are very unhealthy and obviously bad in terms of the treatment of animals) because I almost never feel...
