    Central sleep apnea

    Hi. I have severe central sleep apnea. My short term memory is gone. Concentration is very difficult. I have had to stop driving due to the inability to concentrate and due to getting lost. I have tried all the machines. The last was the ASV. Monitoring shows I sleep an average of 3 hours a night with 50-70 times per hour when my o2 sat drops below 80%. I'm tired of being tired. I do see a light ahead though. I am waiting to be scheduled for surgery to implant dual diaphram pacers. Has anyone....

    I'm Exhausted

    Every morning, I have to be out of bed by 7:00 in order to make it on time to school without looking awful. However, I keep postponing the time and can barely get myself out of bed, if I'm lucky, before 7:30. I'm exhausted during the school day and I'm lucky if I don't fall asleep in class. The weirdest part is that the latest I ever let myself fall asleep is 12, and most nights I go straight to bed at 11. I usually have extremely vivid dreams, half the time which are nightmares.....

    I have a weird sleeping problem

    I sleep with a wall to my back. Ever since I was young, whenever I slept facing the wall, I would have a nightmare. And I realized that at a young age. So everyday I always slept on my normal side. But these past few years I’ve slept facing it (and I wasn’t thinking about my experience from my younger years) and I would actually have some terrifying nightmares. The problem is that whenever I sleep facing the wall, it always feels way more comfortable than sleeping the other way. So the logical thing....

    Sleep study showed I wake up about every 5 minutes

    I'm wondering if anyone else has the same "maintenance insomnia" that I was diagnosed with. 2 hours into a sleep study, I told the nurse that I hadn't slept at all. She said I had but woke up about every 5 minutes, then right back to sleep for another 5 minutes. If I'm doing that all the time, it would explain why I'm so tired every day. I hope someone(s) who has the same problem and has found a solution will share their knowledge with me.

    Sleep issues

    The last couple months I have been having some issues with falling asleep and it's getting annoying. Lately when I think that I am comfortable in bed, my mind all of a sudden starts thinking about everything around me e.g. my hair touching my face - even if it's just one strand, my ears being bent just a tiny bit.. My pillow having a wrinkle in it. And I have to continually fix these things for hours on end until I finally fall asleep due to exhausting. Any ideas on how to help me with this....

    Sleeping issues

    Since losing close family members late last year I've had an increase in nightmares, talking/screaming in my sleep. I know some of my sleep issues are due to childhood memories coming back that are not pleasant (grew up in an abusive environment). Are there any good books that might deal with letting go of bad memories, overcoming being raised by a bipolar parent?

    I need sound to sleep

    Usually it is a podcast. When I lay down to sleep I tend to have an overactive mind so the only way for me to fall asleep is listening to a podcast. Is this negatively affecting my sleep wellness at all?
