    Thanks for that Sleepyhead. I used to worry about the fact that I kept waking and that thenight seemed to be rushing away towards work and that I'd had very little good quality sleep. Now I don't worry so much about how soon it is to getting up, just that I wish desperately, that I could go to sleep and sleep through.

    Thanks Dr Kyle and Nightjar – I can't believe I've never really considered that there might be a link between the two! I certainly will run it past my gp the next time I see him – which will be tomorrow in the office – would you believe I'm a District Nurse! Worrying! lol. Thanks again. :-)

    Gillian apparently good sleepers waken frequently and just get back to sleep again so don't worry if you do waken.

    Thanks dr Kyle. I usually get going over the course of the morning, some days quicker than others. I (all too often) wake with a muzzy head or full blown headache which can be very slow to clear. I would have said I was more of a night owl, but as the years pass, evenings are less good. I am tending to fall asleep in the evening and need good strong matchsticks or my husband's sharp elbows to stay awake until bedtime. There are also troughs through the day when staying awake is a major challenge.
