    So this is weird. I was in bed with my boyfriend laying down, face up, after a night out. I had had about 3 drinks all night.

    Great night sleep tip

    I stopped drinking coffee after one pm & take my showers with jasmine or chamomile candles. Listening to soft classical music with dim lights. I also changed my regular curtains for eclipse curtains. When I can get a daytime nap, take time to meditate or just need some quiet time the curtain change REALLY helps.

    unusual sleep disorder

    I have been suffering for many years from a problem that multiple doctors and sleep clinics have never heard of before. As I begin to drift off to sleep I experience what can best be described as a head rush, a quick, intense rush of blood or energy, I'm not sure which, to the head.

This doesn't happen....
