    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.

    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....

    My husband snores badly

    Hi everyone I am living with my husband in Canada. The problem that I am going to mention are the issues in many families. My husband is 53 and snores badly. I had tried many steps to stop this. I use to have better sleep in morning. Although I'm more comfortable, this isn't really the best option. Also because of the lack of sleep, I am facing a lot of health issues. Severe headache makes me lazy and I am not able to work. Lack of sleep really affects my health quite drastically. I need....

    sleep paralysis nightmares?

    This has only happened a couple times now, starting in this last year. I have woken up about an hour, or only half an hour into my sleep, but been unable to move and hearing or imagining things, but knowing that I'm in my bedroom and being aware that like I am awake. I feel pretty much completely awake but considering im unable to open my eyes or move i pretty much freak out, and have had different things happen to me during the minute or so im unable to move before the feeling starts to fade....

    My hand clenches my wife’s side as I drift off to sleep

    Hello - I don’t know where to turn. As I’m drifting off to sleep, my hand is on my wife’s side or my arm is wrapped around her and she’s holding my hand upon her chest, my hand clenches tightly, enough so that she shreiks in pain. At times the squeeze is enough to leave a bruise on her skin. I am 62, in otherwise good health, having just had a full blood test and physical. Holding her when she comes to bed is comforting for both of us and makes her feel secure. But we can’t keep doing this if I’m....

    Night Eating Syndrome?

    I wake up every night after about an hour of sleep. More often than not, I eat something and am able to go back to sleep for the rest of the night. I know this is not healthy and is interfering with my health & fitness goals. I've tried Melatonin, keeping a sleep diary, going to bed later, etc. The only thing that seems to help is eating something close to bedtime, which defeats the purpose of not eating at night. I'm very frustrated and don't know what to do! If anyone has ideas....

    Becoming violent when woken up

    I can probably count the times in my life that an alarm alone woke me up on both hands. I'm a VERY heavy sleeper, nothing will wake me up unless someone physically shakes me, and I have no trouble falling asleep. Since I can remember, whenever someone tries to wake me up I become violent. I'll yell at them, use expletives, or try to hit them to make them go away. I feel guilty asking my boyfriend to wake me up and put him through that every day, but being in such a heavy sleep, I can't....

    getting too much sleep and cant fix it

    I am 20 years old. I have been getting 9-11 hours of sleep every day for a couple of months. Every time that I think that I have my sleep schedule on its way to being fixed I relapse and it gets worse than where it started. Right now I am working a closing shift at a retail store and not getting home until 11am and I'm so wound up when I get home that I can't fall asleep for the next two hours. most recently I have tried using melatonin and chamomile tea to make myself fall asleep because....
