Does thinking too much lead to insomnia?

It can: Thinking 'too much" on certain topics can make you anxious and lead to insomnia. Some people's minds won't shut off at the end of the day -- they're still worrying about accomplishing tasks or making sure they don't forget something important. It may help to simply write down a list of these things, so your mind will know you have them -- and it doesn't need to keep reminding you!

Can staying up late every night lead to insomnia?

Sleep deprivation : Depriving yourself of good sleep patterns can set you up for a disturbance in your sleep patterns, much as shift workers have to deal with. Try to maintain consistent sleep habits as much as possible to avoid disruption to your rest. Occasional "all nighters" with study or fun activities is ok, but try not make it a habit, or it could backfire on you.

Does insomnia lead to body aches or vice versa?

Does insomnia lead to body aches or vice versa?

Yes it can: We see people with widespread body aches. These are usually people with fibromyalgia. Things that can make it worse include poor exercise and /or poor sleep and/or poor control of stress and psychological issues. When sleep is improved, by correctly idenifying the cause of the poor sleep and sometimes a sleep study can help, the body aches can improve. The muscle pain needs exercise!

Can taking high doses of vitamin c lead to insomnia? i think it is activating for me

Not reported but...: High doses of Vit. C are widely used and generally well-tolerated. The most common side effect of doses of 2 grams or more is loose stools and nausea. Other side effects are rare. In searching I have not seen any reports of insomnia. See http://tinyurl.com/zzz5rdx However, most Vit C is derived from corn. If you are allergic to corn you might react to corn-derived C. Try a corn-free form.

Does insomnia lead to depression more often or does depression lead to insomnia?

Hard to say: Insomnia is actually one of the symptoms that is used to diagnose someone with depression, i.e. One can be classified as depressed if one has insomnia, one other symptom and depressed mood for at least two weeks continuously. So, since insomnia is so integral to how depression is diagnosed, it would be really difficult to make a study of how often insomnia leads to depression and vice versa.
