    Hyperserotonemia confirmed as a cause of autism and insomnia

    Given the flood of recent studies lately, with virtually identical findings as the study below, I don't think much needs to be said. So much for "serotonin is the happiness hormone"...Yet despite the solid evidence implicating serotonin as a (if not THE) major cause of autism, even this study...

    After I work out with moderate intensity I sleep very poorly and get very anhedonic, depressed, and anxious. What is my body telling me?

    I will probably post some questions about this again in the future as I am extremely tired, anhedonic, depressed, and feel like I am always on the cusp of a panic attack (though I never actually have one), so I don't know if I can't really flesh this out. I am a male of 29 years. 5'10". 185lb...

    Vitamin D Supplementation is Improving my Sleep

    For the past few months I've been taking an oral vitamin D supplement, and I'm sleeping better than I have since I was a kid.

    How Do You Ensure A Good Night's Sleep?

    This is one of these issues that's been plaguing me for 2-3 years now. Actually, it's been plaguing me since I started working. I figure that's at least part of the issue - it's subconscious, or psychosomatic, whatever. Why do I think? Because it's almost exclusively an issue when I have to go...

    Chronic Pain Relieved Greatly By Benadryl/diphenhydramine & Nightmares (story-time)?

    I'm including details here that I've never told anyone/written that much about to my knowledge, but all of it does not need to be read if you're not used to my extremely long, often (arguably) strange posts I make here. So I was going to post here about it (the pain), but figured it would be a...

    T4 Causes Sleep Problems At Nights?

    I have read that it should actually improve sleep, and make you relaxed and sleepy but me and another person I give the t4 both experience insomnia or only a few hours of sleep in total, with tossing and turning, when we take it in the evenings. The dose is 25 mcg. Has anybody else experienced...

    Inclined Bed Therapy - Sleeping With The Head End Of The Bed Elevated

    I was surprised to see that there wasn't a thread dedicated to discussing people's experience with it so here we go. At the risk of stating the obvious, it is just raising the head of your bed 6 inches and sleeping at an incline. It has been reported to achieve some impressive health results...
