    PTSD nightmare strategies

    My husband suffers from PTSD nightmares and I just hate sleeping next to him when he is having a really bad time, even if he takes his medicine. I want to know if there is any strategies I could use to help him calm down in his sleep, or how I could wake him up without him hitting me in his sleep. Lately he has been not getting any sleep and I want to do my best to help him.

    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?

    Introduction

    Hi. I'm a 48 year old mother of one who has struggled with a phase shift disorder all my post-pubescent life. Now my 18 year old son is struggling every day, trying to graduate high school, and I can't seem to get any help for him. It's breaking my heart seeing him having so much trouble. I'm hoping we can get some advice from the community. I think he has a delayed sleep phase disorder.

    Waking Up In Haze-Not Just Tired

    This is very difficult for me to explain not just because it's been an issue for 13 years, but because I have no great way of describing these symptoms. Basically, I wake up and do not feel rested. Specifically in my eyes..I have this Haze or feeling like I didn't wake up properly. It started when I was 17 and has been going on till now when I am 30. It used to go away if I took a micro-nap or fell back asleep later in the day. Also, it used to not happen when I woke up to something like....

    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....

    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....

    Face rubbing during sleep

    During my sleep, I seem to rub my nose across my face (up/down) quite vigorously. I have been told that I rub it every 10-15 minutes. I have been told this a lot but never looked into it. Can someone help explain what may be the cause of this and if there are any treatments for it as it's affecting my sleep and others sleep. Kind Regards, Yasmin

    Is your neck supposed to stretch/strain a little when sleeping on a pillow?

    When I sleep I have a little neck strain. I feel like it is required into order to put/raise your head on a pillow? But worried it is not required why and may be causing sleepiness.
