    Messed up sleep

    I'm never able to fall asleep until almost midnight or one in the morning. When this happens I don't wake up until almost noon. I try to take something like melatonin to help me sleep but im never tired until late in the night. Even when I'm sitting around reading a book or something along those lines, I still can't ever Fall asleep. I need ways to help me fall asleep or get a better sleep schedule.
  • New Here

    Hi! I'm new to these boards so I'm trying out all the ones that relate to me and saying hello. I have sleep apnea and fibromyalgia and between the two it feels like I'm exhausted constantly! Then for a few days a month it gets even worse and I barely do anything but sleep for those days! It's awful! Any suggestions?

    I can't get up in the morning!

    This is a problem that I've been having for awhile and that has been getting worse the older I get. I have a really hard time waking up in the morning. I set about 10 alarms and hit snooze until the very last one. Even then, I still have to peel myself out of bed. I know I stay up too late but I can't seem to help it (I do still get at least 6 hours of sleep a night). I've tried so many of the healthy sleep tips (don't watch tv at least an hour before bed, stay off my phone in bed....

    How long does it take to get results from a sleep study?

    Just got myself a sleep study, great! Made an appointment to see the specialist to go over the results. I ask for the earliest opening. I am scheduled to talk to the specialist 106 days after the sleep study. Is this an average wait?

    I seriously can't wake up

    I am still in high school and its very important for me to wake up at a certain time, but no matter what I do I still cannot wake up. I go to sleep every night at least by 10:45 at the latest. The only medicines I take at all are Vyvanse (A.k.a. lisdexamfetamine 40ml) in the morning when I'm leaving for school and Lexapro (A.k.a. escitalopram 20ml) after I eat dinner (normally around 7:30). I have been taking these medications for almost half a year now and they have never made me have a problem....
  • I bit my tongue in my sleep

    This is the first time this has ever happened to me. Last night, in a dream, I had bit my tongue and I noticed that I actually felt pain (started to become lucid). The next morning I noticed that I in fact did bite my tongue. It wasn't that bad, just the very edge of the right side. Now I do have MANY sleep disorders, including: insomnia, hypersomnia, restless leg syndrome, periodic limb movement disorder, and sleep paralysis (before falling asleep). But I don't grind my teeth at night (only....

    Terrible sleep

    Hi. I've rarely had issues with sleep. I've been using a CPAP unit for about 20 years. It's worked well. But recently, I had shoulder surgery, and the couple weeks on pain meds has thrown my sleep off. I'm lucky to get 4 or 5 hours per night. I do get an occasional 7 or 8. My sleep has never been this bad, not even before the sleep apnea diagnosis and CPAP. I've tried Tylenol PM and even edible marijuana products which sometimes work. I don't want to use either of those on....

    What could I be experiencing that is obstructing my sleep ?

    Hi,I'm fairly young and a bit concerned about my health. I've noticed while sleeping I often suffer a series of( sometimes painful) jerks. Sometimes they are widespread all over my body, but are also isolated.The most common jerk I've experienced is a series of neck movements where my neck moves side to side,which is quite painful. More recently I've started feeling twitching in my leg,attempts to speak and woken up gasping for air about 4 times. I've had a history with sleep....

    Can't stay asleep, constant night sweats

    I'm so "tired" of not sleeping through the night. I have my ceiling fan, and floor fan and the temp set at 67 degrees. I'm always hot then cold then hot then cold. I don't need remedies for helping me fall asleep, I need things to help keep me asleep for more than a few hours at a time.
