It;s like, constant crushing sensation in the chest, always tired, headachy, can't sleep that well... Is there anything safe over-the-counter to take for this?

I think that stress and anxiety can deplete your stores of B vitamins. I take a strong VitB50 complex.

I listen to a relaxation thingy on my ipod to get to sleep.

This book is very good.

Hi sbg.. I'm under huge mahoosive stress at the moment and totally idenify with your post.

here's what I do.. regarding sleep, I have no idea.. my pattern is a nightmare. but I do and try to keep regular times.. not that it helps much.. I tried those kalms things.. they didn't work that well.

chest sensation? head aches.. I have zone out time, run (weirdly it helps).

oh and I eat loads of bananas.

st john wort maybe?

Agree with taking Vitamin B's (nervous system is greatly effected by this)

Sounds like this.

Nytol is good for a short term sleep aid.
