    Medication for Sleep

    Hi, First off, I apologize if this is the wrong place for this, and please feel free to direct me to the right place if so. My problem is the night before an important event, whether it's an interview, presentation or anything that requires me to have a well-rested night, due to thinking/worrying too much about it, I end up either being unable to sleep till very late and/or having a horrible night sleep. I've tried various "natural" techniques to try to sleep, but my mind is just....

    Woke up then I fell

    2/25/18 Woke up from a nap I took that lasted about 2 hours. Felt a kind of tingly sensation like when you need sugar I would probably relate it to. Walked to bathroom did my stuff and I just stood there. No idea how much time past because I had not looked at the time but I was lost in thought. Next thing I knew I heard a crash and I was on the floor. I felt nothing no pain from falling no explanation for why I was now on the floor. My parents were asking what that noise was and I just told them....

    Central sleep apnea

    Hi. I have severe central sleep apnea. My short term memory is gone. Concentration is very difficult. I have had to stop driving due to the inability to concentrate and due to getting lost. I have tried all the machines. The last was the ASV. Monitoring shows I sleep an average of 3 hours a night with 50-70 times per hour when my o2 sat drops below 80%. I'm tired of being tired. I do see a light ahead though. I am waiting to be scheduled for surgery to implant dual diaphram pacers. Has anyone....

    Not able to sleep

    I have been like this for 5 years now. I can't sleep. I am sleepy but when it's time for bed I am wide awake. Before I know it, it morning. Sometimes I don't sleep then other times it might be 5 in the morning before I go to sleep. Then I don't feel like doing anything at all. I have tried things to help me sleep nothing. And now my body system is weak and I get sick and my muscles in my neck and shoulders hurt from tighten up. I don't know what to do?

    Messed up sleep

    I'm never able to fall asleep until almost midnight or one in the morning. When this happens I don't wake up until almost noon. I try to take something like melatonin to help me sleep but im never tired until late in the night. Even when I'm sitting around reading a book or something along those lines, I still can't ever Fall asleep. I need ways to help me fall asleep or get a better sleep schedule.

    What’s going on with me?

    I’ve been having really weird things going on just as I’m falling asleep. As I’m starting to fall asleep I get really vivid dream like images which jolt me back to wakefulness. I then have to rush to the bathroom as I feel like I’m going to vomit. I never have, but the nausea stays with me for a while. I then repeat the cycle maybe 2 or 3 more times before falling asleep. This makes me feel really emotional/ disoriented/ misplaced for a few days afterwards. I’ve been trying to figure out why by noting....
  • No matter what time I go to sleep, I have no say as to when I wake up...HELP!

    Ok so I've been dealing with this for the past 10 years of my life and it is finally sending me over the edge. No matter if I am asleep by 8 PM or 2 AM the only times that I can actually get up with an alarm is either 6 AM-7 AM, and when that alarm fails like usual I get up sometime between Noon - 2 PM. It is driving me insane and making me feel depressed. I have never been able to wake up at 9 AM in the morning consistently, with the only exception being if I have something REALLY important....

    I'm awake when I dream, but not lucid dreaming

    Struggling to find info online about this so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read. ☺️ I recently got quite ill with bladder and kidney problems, and my initial meds made me even worse, and my sleep problems only started since I got ill 5 days ago. It's hard to describe what it's like when I'm sleeping but I'll try my best. When I'm in a deep sleep, I start having vivid dreams but I'm awake. I can move because I toss and turn a lot to try....
