Binge Drinking Linked to Insomnia

Fibro Daily June 12, 2013

It’s not unusual for people with health issues to turn to alcohol.

A new study shows that people with insomnia often binge drink. The reasons for drinking in any pattern are numerous: people with insomnia turn to it in hopes of relaxing enough to sleep, or those who suffer from other health issues might turn to alcohol to soothe their nerves or in protest against lifestyle changes. Such actions could result in insomnia.

We don’t need to remind any of you that Fibromyalgia patients often have trouble sleeping and adjusting to life after Fibromyalgia.

If you feel like you have any sort of issue with alcohol, you should speak to your doctor or contact a support group like Alcoholics Anonymous.

(The same goes for those who abuse any kind of substance; speak to your doctor and/or contact a group like Narcotics Anonymous or Overeaters Anonymous.)
