    where are the real insomniacs on this site

    I went on here HOPING and PRAYING I might get help about chronic, entrenched INSOMNIA. 4 YEARS OF IT. There is NO HELP for insomniacs. We don't get sleepy; we are tired! We don't have apnea, or restless legs, or any of those "treatable" conditions. Our sleep system is BROKEN. Where is the research for us. Where can I go to get help. I would hop on a plane for any such help, but there is nothing. Insomniacs need to unite, but how do we do that? We can fly to Mars, we can push a button....

    What to do

    I will be up for four or five days at a time without sleeping. This is amazingly fun on the fourth day you start hallucinating & hearing things and the best part about it is that I never get hungry so I don't eat which means I have to put up with dizziness and fainting as well I've seen many doctors for this all they do is there best to prevent me from using your health Insurance

    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....

    Irregular sleep wake rhythm

    I’m trying to help my dad. This is going to be a long post, so sorry for that. He’s 68 years old and for several years now he has had weird sleep patterns. Due to his job, he worked night and day, so that probably messed him up. On top of that, he was very attached to his job and lost it when he was 63, he got depressed and never accepted help. He spent nights on his computer playing video games. He got over his depression when he retired and got his pension (he was worried about his financial situation....

    Sleeping too much

    My 18 year old son sleeps all night and all day. I wake him up multiple times and he goes right back to sleep. He'll do this a few days in a row, then get back on a normal schedule for a few days then the cycle continues. I'm not sure what's wrong with him. He says he thinks something is wrong too.

    Specific period of the day, nap into a hard sleep, have to be woke up

    My back story is waking regularly around 7 a.m. being fine all day. As I got older and unhealthy it changed for me and I could not get enough sleep. I was told I had narcolepsy fibromyalgia and I had muscle weakness throughout my body and pain. In The Last 5 Years I've had five different surgeries. I'm starting to feel better and more able to do things again. The problem I'm having now is with daytime sleepiness that comes on me around 9 to 11 a.m. . If I lay back down and take a nap....
