    sleeping through vibrations

    just recently whenever i lay down to sleep i feel a vibration that prevents me from getting reasonable sleep. i have tried bed elevation, moving the bed, rubber tips with and without styrofoam, relaxation music, mattress pad, and more with no success. it is causing sleep deprivation, which can be a major issue. i would like to know if sleeping pills would force or cause me to sleep by ignoring the vibrations. if so it would have to be otc pills for now. i am in a old house rehabbed into apts on the....

    Hours of Sleeps

    It is recommended that you sleep at least 8-12 hours in a single day. I used to sleep 3-5 hours a day. Moreover, my body starts to catch up on sleeps by putting off on 8-20 hours.

    Resmed AirMini Travel For Sleep Apnea Has Anyone Tried it?

    Hello, there. Resmed just released a new CPAP machine called the AirMini. Has anyone tried it ? Is it better than the Z1 Auto? I found some useful information about it here: https://airmini.resmed.com/ https://www.sleeprestfully.com/blog/resmed-airmini-travel-cpap-review-2017/ but there is no information about a battery? Do you have to use a charger all the time?

    I'm not sure if this is serious or not...

    I do intend on going to a doctor, but I'd like to know what to expect and if other people have had this happen before. I am an eighteen year old human male, 5 ft. 11.5 inches tall, I'm in rather good shape, and have never had intercourse to obtain an STD. I had fallen asleep at around 3:30 or 4 and that isn't unusual for me. I had awoken and found that my legs were completely numb but I could feel movement in my hips. I noticed that my legs were convulsing (not violently, but enough to....

    Long-term use of Diphenhydramine

    I've had insomnia for years now and end up taking 25mg of Diphenhydramine (the active ingredient in Benadryl, ZzzQuil, and other over-the-counter sleep aids) most nights. I don't have any real side effects, and nothing I've read about the drug indicates that this kind of use would cause health problems, but I do wonder whether it might be affecting my liver--or my health in other ways. Does anyone know?

    Trouble sleeping?

    Hello, apologies for a long post. So about roughly 3 weeks ago one night I suddenly had trouble sleeping, it took me a long while to fall asleep and I ending up overthinking this and then thinking something wrong was with me. Since that night for a week afterwards I was extremely nervous to go to bed and was anxious in bed in case I struggled again to fall asleep which some nights I did. Once I get into bed too I don't feel like I want to go to sleep? After this I decided to cut caffeine out....

    Half asleep Half awake

    I'm really struggling with my sleep. Sometimes after a long day or just out of the blue, while I'm falling asleep or I believe I've fallen asleep, I wake up (I'm not even sure if I'm awake, I only remember these things in the morning) and think someone is in the room with me, so I usually sit up, it's not a scary experience like sleep paralysis because usually I think my friends are in my room, but the problem is I want to go sleep, but my brain thinks it's doing something....
