I remember the soaking sheets changing them during the night, husband totally enraged. Even with clean sheets the bed was damp. Ugh! Has somewhat settled but still happens. Sleepwise I started listening to books on CD. Eventually found favourite ones which I just fell asleep listening to as I knew the stories so well. I really like the Paul Temple ones. How sad can I be? Physically I found all the tablets, relaxation aids etc did not work for me. My only physical help was to continually relax my jaw and remind myself to do so constantly.

Okay don't think I am crazy but....after pills (although trying some new GNC brand right now), tapes, etc. I turn on the ID channel on tv - not loud enough to hear but the narrator is so monotone after a while it puts me to sleep.

Hi Katie. Luckily I don't have the wet sheet problem but do get the flushes. It would be just nice to get a decent nights sleep. I do read before going to sleep but don't have the facility to have something to read to me. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Hi Jules. Thanks for your post. I too have tried the natural pills with little relief. Have just ordered some different ones to see if they make any difference. Would be keen to hear how your new ones go. I don't have tv in my room but have tried listening to music on a low volume. It didn't seem to help much. Maybe it was because the music wasn't monotone enough. LOL

I dont get the night sweats but lack of sleep is becoming a problem. Ive been working out everyday and that seems to help. Especially before dinner, tends to tire me out.

I started having the same problem some months ago. I cut out my regular morning coffee in the morning on weekdays and I don't have sleepless nights anymore [caffeine was also agitating my incontinence so I killed 2 birds with 1 stone].
