I haven't slept previous last two nights at all. I woke up on monday at 9 am. No it's midnight here and I am not sleepy still, or to be precise, I feel weak but am completely unable to fall asleep. I'm affraid I wont sleep tonight either. I don't take any drugs, I drink coffee as always, once a day. I functioned pretty normally, but now I am quite concerned. I have never before been awake for more than 50 hours.

Have you ever had such thing? When should I start worrying?

I only get insomnia when I'm not regularly exercising. Try going for difficult jog/run if you're not doing so already.

If you don't mind taking pills you could try Benadryl. I usually take it for long plane rides and it works.

I occasionally have trouble turning off at night and I've had some success taking a small dose of melatonin.

Any major stress -- good or bad -- going on in your life now?
