Energy Levels - Anyone experienced insomnia?



Recommended Posts

Hi - I am 1 week post op, and have lost 14 lbs. I have so much energy right now that I have insomnia....has anyone else experienced this? If so, what are your remedies/changes in your eating schedule worked for you?

I knew I would have more energy, but didn't think it would be this soon...don't get me wrong, it is great, but not at 2am. :biggrin:

Thanks-

I haven't had the sleeve yet, but have gone thru a lot of insomnia - what with arthritis, knee surgeries etc. Hard to sleep with pain, plus I am an older lady and that doesn't help either. One thing that really works for me, that is replacing Melatonin. I buy the Extra Strength easy dissolve (under the tongue kind) by Weber Naturals and take one at bedtime.

Inexpensive and worth a try. Even regular strength would help, the pills are very tiny - easy to swallow.

Wish I had your energy, hope to get some of mine back with weight loss!

Cheers!

HELLO!

I have experianced insomnia, and it only lasted a couple of days. Then I crashed. After the sleeve I couldnt get motivated to do anything. Again that only lasted for a time. Like all the other things with this surgery "this too shall pass"

I am amazed now that I am two months out how much I have returned to normal with energy, taste, emotions etc. The only thing that isnt 'normal' is the eating...and I am glad for that. I only eat a very little amount to be full....down to 219 now I am stoked!! Come on 170!:blink:

I had sleep issues before surgery but it was real bad the first two weeks after surgery. I had so much energy but could not do what I wanted (like rearrange the attic, yard work).

I still have more energy but I am sleeping so much better now it is great.

Oh yes, I have experienced this. I know it isn't easy if you are working because you just keep thinking about you need to get to sleep so you can get up. I think I have sleep patterns and by that I mean there are times when I sleep really well, and then there are times when I go to sleep just great and then WOW wake up at 2:00 or 3:00 AM for no reason what so ever just wide awake. I have found if I don't take any naps and then use our hot tub or a nice warm bath before I go to bed that does help some. You may just have to live through them, and see how things go. I have no perfect answer for this.

Yes I had insomnia just up until a couple days ago and I had surgery on the sep 1st. I started working out later in the evening. I dont know if that made a difference, but i slept really well last night.

Yes, I know exactly what you mean. It did happened about day 5. The RD suggested that because I am not eating all that junk (sugar, flour) and feeding it what it needs for a change, that is what is giving me all that energy. A *happy* body!

Regarding the insomnia, I can't sleep at all if I take my Vitamins or drink a shake b4 going to bed. They have high levels of vit B12, and you know what that does. But, if it not due to that, maybe your RD or MD have any suggestions.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
