I have the same situation True. Waking up in the middle of the night can be typical of adrenal fatigue due to low blood sugar or a spike in cortisol at the wrong time. I'm sure you already do this but avoid high carb meals and stimulants like caffeine in the evening to avoid hypoglycemia in the night waking you up. If you suspect a cortisol peak during the night may be to blame then phospatidylserine (PS) supplements may help. Only adrenal hormone saliva testing will confirm this problem however.
