    Introduction

    Hi. I'm a 48 year old mother of one who has struggled with a phase shift disorder all my post-pubescent life. Now my 18 year old son is struggling every day, trying to graduate high school, and I can't seem to get any help for him. It's breaking my heart seeing him having so much trouble. I'm hoping we can get some advice from the community. I think he has a delayed sleep phase disorder.

    Constantly waking up to pee...

    Hi everyone, After seeing countless doctors over the past 3 years with no improvement, I thought I'd post my situation here to see if anyone has a solution. I'm a 35 year old guy who has been waking up to pee multiple times a night for the past 3 years. Overall, I'm having to pee between 15-20 times daily. During the day, it's a minor annoyance, but at night it's awful as I'm getting about 4-5 hours of sleep every night, spending the rest of the night tossing and turning and....

    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....

    Unable to breath in air while sleeping

    I struggle to take in enough air while sleeping. I have not been able to sleep for 2 nights now. I often feel I will have panic attack and sleeping is now a nightmare for me. The mere thought of night sleep scares the hell out of me. I snore when I sleep. Is this sleep apnea? I have no clue. This has also affected my quality of life. I wake up with serious headaches. When I try to sleep at night sometimes, I struggle to take in enough air into my lungs and I end up waking abruptly gasping for breath....

    Face rubbing during sleep

    During my sleep, I seem to rub my nose across my face (up/down) quite vigorously. I have been told that I rub it every 10-15 minutes. I have been told this a lot but never looked into it. Can someone help explain what may be the cause of this and if there are any treatments for it as it's affecting my sleep and others sleep. Kind Regards, Yasmin
  • Sexsomnia Can Anyone Help Or Give Advise?

My major issue here and concern is i seem to frequently masturbate, i wake up in the morning and im just covered in dried up cum, i have had sex while asleep but this does not happen nearly as much as the masturbation. My penis started to get raw right underneath the head of my penis as i must be rubbing alot. I finally set up....

    Is your neck supposed to stretch/strain a little when sleeping on a pillow?

    When I sleep I have a little neck strain. I feel like it is required into order to put/raise your head on a pillow? But worried it is not required why and may be causing sleepiness.

    Snooze button

    Your article sounds like it could be describing me!! I don't have 10 alarms but I do hit the Snooze button several times and sometimes I don't even hear my alarm go off and it's really loud. My family can hear my alarm go off from across the house, yet I can't hear it and it's beside my bed. You may be trying to wake up during the wrong sleep cycle and there's an actual sleep calculator that tells you what time you should go to bed according to the time you wake up. Let me....
