I work in rotational shifts and have to work 6 or 7 night shifts per month. But I don't get sleep during day time. I can sleep for maximum of 3 hours. This is affecting my health very badly. Before this I never had habit of sleeping during day time. So now I am not able to sleep during day time after night shift. Is this any kind of disorder and if I consult any somnologist can he/she help this problem? Thanks.

Feela like depression

Hi doc, I had depression before 3years back and was under escilatopram for 5 months... and then i felt better. Currently I am feeling like panic,and racing thoughts, worried about my carrer. I had visited a psychiatrist for depression...last I visited 2 months ago...and I was ok and optimistic.

Now I want to move on and settle and move out...m feeling kinda insecure and lonely at try to be happy and i also get often migrane like headaches even when m not worrisome.
