    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?

    teen with severe insomnia

    I have a teenager with severe insomnia & I don't know what to do. We;ve already visited a psychiatrist and a sleep specialist who have given the same speech about staying out of bed during the day, stress, etc. She's started to get physical exercise during the day, cut out caffeinated beverages but over time it seems like the insomnia has gotten worse. We've tried antihistamines, melatonin (which ended up doing nothing except giving her extremely unpleasant dreams, and the sleep specialist....

    Falling Asleep

    I find myself looking at the computer and dozing off. I sit in meetings - start dozing off. I could be sitting at a concert, play, movie, etc. and I could be dozing off. Watching TV sitting up - will catch myself dozing off but then when I go into bed - I am wide awake. I have also found that I can start dozing while driving. I am constantly moving around in the seat - especially driving a long distance. HELP!!

    Does it seem like I may have a sleep disorder?

    Oh most normal nights I will average ten hours of sleep. While I am asleep I rarely seem to move. Yet if people touch me I will lash out violently at them and if I do speak I end up cussing the person out. I will remember it every now and then when I am woken up and cussing, yet at times I won't remember lashing out and trying to injure them. I also don't do well falling asleep before three in the morning when not o a schedule I need to absolutely keep. If I do fall asleep before then I will....

    Numb body after waking up. (NOT sleep paralysis)

    Today I took a nap, and when I woke up it felt like my whole body was numb or "asleep" (the same feeling you get when you fall asleep on your arm and it's all painful and tingly). So I was able to get out of bed but when I stood up from bed I just fell to the ground instantly and my body felt like jello. It felt like I had lost all control of my body. I had to lay on the floor for a little bit as my whole body still felt numb and I couldn't get up, I couldn't even crawl I was....

    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....

    Melatonin Benefits, Risks: What You Need to Know

    More than 3 million adults and a half-million children take melatonin as a sleep aide, and that number is expected to grow. Taken at the right time, in the right dose, it can, indeed, repair a sleep schedule thrown off kilter by jet lag, a long weekend filled with late nights, or certain circadian rhythm disorders. But for insomnia that happens now and then, research shows its effectiveness is limited. And some fear that if misused, it may do harm. Find out more here: http://wb.md/2hCUMcc Do you....
