  • Sleep issues HELP

    Guys,
    I have been having re-occuring sleep problems for about a year now. I am convinced they are the cause of my super slow gains. I go in cycles; I take my sleep meds and feel great for a week or two, I make gains, my body changes daily then I try to sleep without assistance, I get a day or two of decent sleep without them then I get stressed out and toss and turn a couple nights in a row and BAM!! I catch a cold. Its like clock work. And the cold knocks me on my ass for 4-5 days and I slip back to where I was.
    I really think I have great potential, im 5'10 (almost) 23 yo and have seen 258 with a 4 pack ( slight chubbiness) but lately this sleep thing is killing me. I am back down to 240-247 and DAMMIT can't get up to 250 again. 3 weeks ago I was going awesome got 2.5 weeks in and was feeling so big and strong I broke the smith machine dead lifting. I felt like a beast and today I feel like a cheerleader after a week off from a cold.
    I have just about had it, I am going in for a sleep apnea test and I have ordered some valium but I HATE taking medications for stuff like sleep, aches, and colds. I dont want a band aid I want a cure.

    Please any help. I bought some ZMA as I am desperate and I seem to remember when I was young It seemed to help me sleep.

          Valerian root and melatonin together is one of the few things that actually makes me drowsy.

          I sleep like a damn log when taking those.

            A deficiency in Calcium has also been shown to cause sleep disorders...When you do take it, make sure it is before bedtime...

              Supplementing magnesium may help also...
