  • Increased wakeful events when using BiPap

    I’m a paraplegic with OSA. My belief is that the inspiratory phase is so fast, even the slowest setting is 600 ms (.6 of a second!), that it causes a spasm in my body and thus the more wakeful events. I’m more tired using a BiPap than without. Any suggestions? TIA.

    Unrestful Sleep

    I go to bed at a decent hour and I end up falling asleep for about 3 hours and waking back up. I could sleep for like 9 hours and then wake up in the morning like I got half an hour.

    sleeping through the night

    Hopefully someone has some words of wisdom. First, I don’t think I have slept more than 6 hours since I was in my 20’s (I am 59) and I was always an early riser (around 530-6 am). I guess my first occurrence of insomnia first started about 13 years ago where I couldn’t get to sleep because my brain wouldn’t shut up. My family physician put me on a low dose of Xanax and that seemed to do the trick. About 2-3 years ago my insomnia changed from not being able to get to sleep to not being able to sleep....

    Insomnia for 6 weeks

    I have been suffering from insomnia and anxiety after my brother died 6 weeks ago. I just found a bottle of 30 1 mg tablets of lorazepam in my late brother’s kitchen cabinet. I really need to sleep. I don’t know anything about these pills. Can I take the whole bottle at once? It doesn’t seem like a large dose.

    Can't sleep longer than 3-4 hours, feel like I awake every night from a nightmare.

    Well for the last couple of months I've been trying to sleep but I can't sleep for longer than 3 / 4 hours. and when I wake up i'm sweating, my heart is racing like I've woken up from a bad dream, but I can't remember dreaming if that makes any sense. It's like I am waking up from a horrible nightmare but I can't remember anything about the nightmare. I can't get back to sleep after this happens either. Does anyone have any suggestions to help me?
