Is it that you are just really uncomfy when you are sleeping or is it that your body isn't tired? Last night I swear I layed in bed for like 3 hours wide awake! It was driving me up the wall! I don't know why I couldn't sleep either.

If it is your brace then I don't have much advice unfortunately cause I have never worn one. But there are plenty of people on here that have and hopefully they can give you some advice on how to make it more comfortable.

Hopefully you will get used to your brace soon Jamie, then you'll find it easier to get to sleep. It can help if you have a nice warm bath before bed, and if you drink a hot milky drink. Ask your mum if she'll make you some yummy hot chocolate before bedtime :)

Jamie, Sometimes when you can't sleep the only thing keeping you awake is your mind. It's still awake so use it. You can think about anything peaceful or try thinking only about others. That doesn't work try conciously saying my right foot is all relaxed and then relax it, next my left foot is all relaxed and relax it....etc. until you are totally relaxed and then lie there and really listen to your breathing and slow it down. This really works. A doctor friend of mine suggested it.

Yah it is hard to sleep with a brace... but you just have to get used to it and eventually you will. It just takes some time thats all. You just have to be patient and it'll all work out i'm sure :D
