Sleep Disturbance

Sleep Disturbance

Hello everyone! I have type 2 and have this problem in the night. I wake up at around 2:30 every night. My hands and feet are tingling, ears are ringing and I have a headache.

I use specially tinted glass to block blue light. I bought them on Amazon and they fit over my glasses. I used them when watching TV and using my phone at night.I also have a blue lighter filter app. on my cell.

What is sleep? I get on the average 4hrs sleep a night, and up @ 4am every morning wherever I’m working or not.
