Shallow breathing, pounding heart, body feels clammy, chest is tight; anxiety running through knowing that you can't sleep, yet again. You dread night time, knowing that you "have" to sleep but you won't. Chronic insomnia is no joking matter. It's exhausting, mentally and physically and quite frankly it is torture.
A recent paper published in the Journal of Sleep Medicine & Disorders suggests that some insomnia cases could be caused by complex chemical interactions in the brain resulting from subluxation. But often, there is more to it and further testing may need to be done.
