Common Questions and Answers about Sleep disorders can t wake up


Avatar f tn I wake up my husband in fear a few times a year - usually I just wake up in fear and then go back to sleep. When I wake up, though, I still can see the face of the people that are watching me. Sometimes I feel that they are almost trying to tell me something. So, I'm looking to this list to see if there is someone that has a solution for me.
Avatar n tn i wake up in the mornings feeling very jittery likesomeone is struming me from the inside. i have mvp and this started then and my nervous system is causing it. every morning and sometimes during the day, kinda feels like you have had tons of coffee when i have had none. just gotta live with it i gues at least in my case.
Avatar m tn If the symptoms still do not resolve, then you have to get assessed for sleep disorders. Certain sleep disorders like obstructive sleep apnea can cause disturbed sleep and hence the need to sleep more. And others like narcolepsy can cause excessive sleepiness per say. If it persists or is troublesome consult your doctor for assessment. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I now wake up in the morning angry at them. I sleep fine, but the moment I wake up, I think of really angry thoughts. Since then I also suffer from severe anxiety tight places like in a car, bus, or airplane. Before then I didn't have these issues. What is wrong with me? I've never been on any drugs. I've been to a psychologist, but he wanted to put me on drugs. I said I want a natural way and not have to rely on drugs.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem both you ladies have. Very frustrating I can't even go out with friends for a meal. I can eat very little at a meal. I would like to find out more about what you are going through. I'm on Propulsid 10MG 4 times a day. I tried the 20 MG but it made me real dizzy. I have lost 7 pounds since I've been on it(7 days). The last couple days I am very Ill after I eat. I can't lie down or sit down after meals. I'm only comfortable if I am standing or I go for a walk.
Avatar m tn Here's the deal: 1)Always have had a hard time falling alseep. Average is 30-45 minutes to fall asleep but have had less and more sometimes. 2)Wake up on average 10-12 times a night, some days less, some days more (and those are bad nights) 3)Always have been an "owl". tend to work and think better at night, daytime sluggish until i get a "second wind". 4)i am now 39 and the quality of sleep is continously crappy.
Avatar dr m tn They pointed out, however, that it’s unlikely that OSA causes dementia, and that the lowered oxygen levels and sleep fragmentation is what can aggravate poor cognition and memory loss. I disagree with the last statement. The fact that 70-80% of Alzheimer’s patients have OSA is a very high figure. The minimum criteria for a sleep apnea diagnosis is 5 apneas or hypopneas per hour, and each episode has to last longer than 10 seconds.
Avatar m tn You will need to consult your primary care physician, who may schedule you for a polysomnogram (sleep test) to rule out sleep disorders and initiate appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I try and scream and move as violently around as I can and scream as loud as I can. When i wake up, well iu think i am awake, only to actually wake up moments later. When i actually wake I try so hard to get up but I am so tired that I almost immediately fall back into it. I am aware that I have fallen back into it and try and pinch myself to wake up. Its like my arms and hands are pinned down and I cant seem to grip.
Avatar n tn I am getting real dizzy spells while sleeping...they start in my dream and wake me eyes won´t focus on anything...the dizzy spells are so bad, i break out in a cold sweat and have to throw up..then they carry on thru the day...I had this same problem last year at this time...the dizzy starts it seems while i am sleeping on my left side...but only this time of year..
Avatar dr m tn The answer to this seeming disparity depends on where these people lie on the sleep-breathing continuum. Why Some Need More Sleep While Others Can Do Without If you are one of those people who wake up refreshed and recharged after a good night’s rest, then your sleep quality is probably the kind that the researchers are pointing to when they say that sleeping more can make you more creative.
Avatar n tn However, if you have something like sleep apnea, where you wake up and you're not breathing, or maybe you've done it and didn't remember it but someone noticed that you wake up during sleep, then definitely go to a doctor and ask them if you have sleep apnea. That can be a serious problem. Otherwise, especially if it's just psychological, don't worry about THAT please - falling asleep doesn't mean your body shuts off - it is working just as well as it is when you're awake.
Avatar n tn I'm a 60 year old men, in excellent health, except for experiencing tremors during sleep that wake me up and have difficulty going back to sleep. As I start to fall sleep again, I feel these "rumbleling" (tremors) around my upper body. I immediately wake up again. These tremors last for about 10-15 seconds after I wake up. The first time I experienced this condition was exactly two years ago. It lasted for about four days and it simply went away.
Avatar m tn The combo I use has been for years, but I have to tell you that when it does get me to sleep I do sleep like a log and wake up "rested". The only problem is, I don't like the idea of facing another day. Oh, my, waidaminnit, waidaminnit.. I knew I'd seen that "remeron" somewhere before. That's the stuff (aka mirtazapine) that resulted in the flashback. Well, it was sort of a combination flashback and nightmare, I guess.
Avatar f tn I have always required at least ten hours of sleep to be able to function properly. There are days in which I wake up and my body just hurts, & if someone touches me, it feels like I am bruised. (First rheumatologist diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia, second rheumatologist said it's definitely not fibromyalgia, but she never believed there was anything wrong with me, even though she saw at the time of my finger swelling.) In high school, I gave blood & had a false positive for HIV.
Avatar f tn 30 am). A few times we've tried to help her sleep without us but the crying and gagging and screaming will not stop and she does not give up..she will do this with no end. I feel sorry to see her so scared. She said she is not afraid of anything in particular in her room, we've tried the lights on nothing seems to calm her down. In the waking hours she is a good, calm child..but not very independant..
Avatar n tn These occur when dreams invade slightly into wakefulness during the transitions from wake to sleep or from sleep to wake. For some people it may just be a vague sound or color/shape, but for others the hallucinations can be quite complex like a dream almost. They do seem very real, in my experience!
Avatar m tn My sleep is very broken to say the least, I know of at least 4 times on average I wake up during the night, and what I would describe as generally a very restless sleep. I wake up not feeling refreshed and feeling like I could do with more sleep. I seem to be able to accomplish my tasks during the day, I have the energy. But in some respects, it's almost like Im generating the energy from somewhere, like Im sucking it in from around me, rather than using my own reserves.
Avatar m tn Valerian is most commonly used for sleep disorders, especially the inability to sleep (insomnia). It is frequently combined with hops, lemon balm, or other herbs that also cause drowsiness. Some people who are trying to withdraw from the use of “sleeping pills” use valerian to help them sleep after they have tapered the dose of the sleeping pill. There is some scientific evidence that valerian works for sleep disorders, although not all studies are positive.
Avatar f tn Isn't helping much for the pain, but it does make me sleep. Problem with the depression is that I can never make up my mind what to do. If I plan to something, you can bet I won't do it but will do something completely different. I can't make decisions if there is a choice. I have been treated for depression on and off throughout my life. My father suffered from depression when he was younger and my mother doesn't even understand what depression is.
Avatar n tn Quix, You're correct if I can't care for myself how can I care for my kids.My son wanted to call an ems and I told him no. Right now pain is an understatement.I'm gonna go to bed and think happy thoughts after a few meds and be optimistic that this will all be gone in the morning.If not ,if its worse I will go directly to the ER. My x-hubby is staying the night just in case.
Avatar m tn I have had similar problems for years. I wake up generally during the beginning of my sleep. I wake up with a sensation that I have stopped breathing. When this happens I scream out "help". and go back to sleep and it keeps happening finnally at some point I am able to sleep. My husband tells me I wake up about 20 times each night. I was told to go to a sleep clinic but I've herad you have to wear a mask and I have clostephopia (not sure it's spelled correctly.
Avatar n tn I have found that my depression tends to run in waves and the mornings have always been the worse time for me. I take antidepressants regularly and have learned to take my meds first thing when I wake up and my second dosage later in the afternoon with hopes it will carry me thru the night. There is also melancholia depression, it is simply being depressed in the can go on ine and read about it and see if it sounds like what you are experiencing.
707647 tn?1251492147 Take an afternoon nap after a poor night’s sleep 9.Increase your exposure to early morning sunlight as soon as you wake up to establish a more consistent sleep rhythm. 10.Exercise by taking a brisk walk 3-6 hours before bedtime. This will improve your sleep by causing a greater rise and fall in your body temperature. Dr. Gregg D.

Avatar m tn Hi, for a little over a month now, I have been having this problem where I go to bed and can fall asleep relativly easely but regardless of what I do I wake up an hour and a half later, systematically.. ALWAYS 90 minutes after I fall asleep. I wake up and try to fall back asleep an average of 3-4 times every night and wake up in the worse possible shape the next morning..
Avatar n tn Thats why when I take adderall and have to do a specific task like study, I do it at my house or some where else where I can be alone. It makes it alot easier to wake up the next morning and recognize that alot of my paranoia and about people doing things to me was a result of being on adderall. And if your not freaking out around ppl it is a matter that you can handle and not have to worry about the opinions of other. I do suggest that you go and see a clinical psychologist.
Avatar n tn Ahhhhh, an echo of my words across the years.... Okay then, I'll just wait until I wake up some day and can't move my legs to get out of bed. As it turned out, it was an episode of complete urinary incontinence after exertion in August heat that turned the tide (ever so slowly). Also like you, I was hard on myself at times. Sans diagnosis I had accepted myself as 'weaker' or 'less able' and finally 'too old' to keep up.
Avatar m tn thank you,this is a **** time really ,my head is full with scenarios ,can`t sleep,can`t eat .
Avatar n tn Then I am very scared and I feel tingling all over my body. I go back to sleep, wake up again, go back to sleep.. Then I start to dream, dont remember about what, but during this dream I suddenly hear this loud noise. The noise reminded me about the violent shaking I just experienced and the noise I heard was so freightening that I instantly woke up as if I was afraid that the shaking would start again. From then on, around 7:20 AM, I was too afraid to go back to sleep.
Avatar m tn but as i was feeling better i went of zoloft and with in a couple of days it was back the promblem im having is on the verge to sleep i here a noise and it starts the inner shacking in my chest i thought it was my heart at first, but its like shacking from the inside,it feels terrible, it helps to have your bedroom door shut no noise just a black room helped me alot to get to sleep, it doesnt happen to me when i am in a deep sleep i can wake up and i will be fine just when im on the verge of a d
