If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Insomnia

Does anybody have any links to hard rather than anecdotal evidence that MS causes insomnia?

So far on the interweb on medical sites at least I can only find insomnia listed as a secondary symptom of MS...

Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi bil,

Don't know if this will be of any help........are you on any medication? Early on when I was taking Baclofen I started having extreme insomnia. The head nurse at the MS clinic said the insomnia wasn't a result of the Baclofen BUT when I eventually saw my neuro, she said absolutely. Baclofen did nothing for me so went off of it and sleeping wasn't a problem soon after.

Too much sugar or colas also affect my sleep.

Take care.
