Common Questions and Answers about Sleep disorders early waking


443862 tn?1238003039 It's known that menopause in early stages cause sleep disorders, diabetes also can do that, don't know much about the the thyroid disorder but it can also contribute. I have also sleep disorders, and I found that a nap during the day help me to sleep better at night, believe or not... incredible. Try also night sleep tea, a glass of warm milk or in extreme case ask your doctor for Ambien CR, I take it and help me a lot, but be careful, can be habit forming and lose its capabilities.
Avatar f tn Dear Lizlong83 Sleep disorders are common in children who have genetic disorders with so much going on. Also they are common in the general poplulation You did not mention what kind of sleep patterns. Or how old she is. It can be genetic with a predisposition to the sleep pattern because of your child's medical condition. Or it can be something as simple as a young child in school who has pinworms and is kept awake all night by them. Which is EXTREMELY COMMON but often undiagnosed.
Avatar f tn And certain illnesses can cause fatigue (hypothyroid, diabetes, anemia). If you have sleep disorders and/or your sleep stages are out of kilter, you will feel tired during the day. A sleep neurologist could be helpful, and will probably want to do a sleep study to get a full picture of what's happening while you sleep.
Avatar m tn If this is a long standing problem, she may want to have sleep disorders ruled out with a sleep study so she knows exactly what she is working with. If she has no disorder that needs treating, her doc may prescribe an appropriate med to help her sleep, or even to help with stress. But meds without knowing why her sleep is disrupted would not be the path I would choose. Long term sleep deprivation can have health and mind consequences.
Avatar n tn I am a 28 year old mom of three. For the past few months, upon waking in the early morning, I am having breif periods of shaking that last about 10 to 15 secs.of the arms and legs. I do not experiance any more trought out the day. I have started taking cymbalta for about 2 months for anziety. thank you.
Avatar n tn It didn't really do this though (at least the dose I was on - 20mg), although it did make it very easy to *return* to sleep after waking (usually minutes instead of hours). Eventually I stopped taking it as it really wasn't the solution I needed, and it had other undesirable effects. The doctor I see now has prescribed me cipramil in combination with valium (when needed). Is this really the right solution for me?
Avatar n tn I agree with going for polysomnography, an overnight sleep study for definite diagnosis and to rule out other types of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Primary insomnia refers to insomnia that is not caused by any known physical or mental condition and can be caused by many different things like alcohol, anxiety, coffee, or stress.
778037 tn?1377989800 Flycaster will probably tell you the same thing when he checks back in, but waking up with a dry mouth and unable to breath until you change position sounds like some kind of sleep apnea. Whatever this sleep issue is, it needs to get diagnosed and remedied. I agree with Flycaster that you need to see the doctor. Your PCP can decide, based on your medical details, if you need to see a cardiologist or a sleep medicine specialist first.
Avatar n tn About the hallucinations, they can be a side effect of some meds, a symptom of certain sleep disorders, or even a result of low oxygen to the brain in obstructive sleep apnea. You may benefit from an overnight sleep study, but you might need to get those hours of sleep better - hard to test someone who is awake. I was one who would stay up all night till I crashed. I avoided sleep because it was so miserable unless I was dead tired.
Avatar m tn Having to lay in bed before falling asleep and waking up tired even after many hour are lear signs that you sleep is disturbed. Insomnia (one of many sleep disorders) means that your brain, just can't shut down. I too have had sleep issues for ever. In fact ist´s been known that child insomnia can contribute for many later disorders. Of course you shloud see a doctor and try to explain your difiiculties and your historial, also speak to him about non drug treatments.
503651 tn?1223178201 Frequent awakenings can be symptomatic of sleep disorders. While there are many sleep disorders, the 2 we hear the most about are sleep apnea and periodic limb movement disorder. Some possible symptoms of sleep apnea can be morning headaches, waking with sensation of choking or shortness of breath or fast heartbeat, snoring, daytime sleepiness.
94902 tn?1330483267 He was waking up every two hours, Medina has been doing that at times but mainly every three hours. We co-sleep, that is the best option for me at the moment because I'm really buggered and due to breastfeeding. I think Medina is teething but it may be also changes in her development. When they reach major milestones that also plays a role in their sleeping. Babies also go through a growth spurt at around 5.5-6 months. But you're not alone!!
Avatar m tn I do think that my sleep problem has something to do with my Chiari, but I dont think it is sleep apnea, coz I am not waking up gasping for air. My problem is that when I wake up I dont feel refreshed, like I havent really slept, this problem has progressively got worse since 2007. It has come to a point where it is really bothering me and I need to proactively do something about it. I think I have an issue with non-restorative sleep, can someone tell me if I am right?
Avatar f tn Could be asthma related, could be an anxiety issue. I've heard of people waking up with panic attacks. It could also be sleep apnea where you stop breathing for periods of time while you sleep. It is really important to get this checked out asap.
Avatar n tn Once I also had a strong sensation of almost vomiting as I woke. After the first episode I was tested twice in a sleep disorders lab for sleep apnea. Both times they could see nothing wrong at all from the results. So I quit smoking and stopped eating late at night (a sure trigger), but the episodes have continued, sometimes more than a year apart, at other times very close together - last week I had two in 8 days.
Avatar m tn Some possibilities include sleep behavior disorders (like restless leg) or obstructive sleep apnea. Incidentally, you mentioned weight gain; increased weight is one of the risk factors for obstructive sleep apnea.
4587140 tn?1356853647 originally I had some tremor in right now it is both right and left, I was told I have seizure activity at night at my last hospital stay but since when I can sleep I do such things as kick and move my legs sit up tap my arm like its a watch often fall asleep mid day and then argue with my caregiver about whether i was asleep and talking at the same time.
4686261 tn?1358138792 wake repeatedly and don't feel I have truly gotten to sleep until early in the morning, after 4am. If left to my own devices & schedule, I would be up late into the night and sleep til 10 - noon. I wonder if that is the problem I have?
Avatar f tn And now I'm getting used to it I don't have any trouble sleeping and waking but!! The issue I'm facing now is that today I was in a totally deep sleep like coma and I couldn't hear the alarm, nor my phone ringing (I got 8 missed calls from my work) until I suddenly woke up by myself, yet I went to bed 10:30pm yesterday night.. This happened several times before and I'm totally in coma without dreams nor awareness.. I went to the doctor but they didn't find anything wrong with me..
1575311 tn?1312798384 They either don't work at all or make my sleep more erratic. I just want to go to sleep a few hours earlier so I can be up early if I have to without staying up over 48 hours after. Any suggestions or can anyone relate? I have another sleep study on Jan. 31st and I'll see what they reccommend, but I value help from others with the same condition. Help from experts in the forum is welcome too.
Avatar n tn I would like to suggest you to get a sleep study done to know the present condition and get evaluated by a sleep doctor for the sleep study assessment and review of your early medial documents and Xyrem. You can ask him for the prescription and hope you would get it, if required now. You may take little more time to get adjusted to new place and people. Keep physically active and update on your progress. Take care.
Avatar m tn 5 - 2 hours each night. Sometimes I just drift back to sleep, and sometimes it is difficult to go back to sleep. I did a sleep study and they diagnosed sleep apnea. I had always slept well and was never tired or sleepy during the day, and so I have no idea as to how suddenly I have sleep apnea. The problem started for me one fine day when there was absolutely no stress in my life.
956292 tn?1334058469 The fatigue isn't gone, but I'm thinking more clearly and the fatigue is better with the Provigil and the other medicine to help me get a deeper sleep. MS and other brain diseases can cause sleep disorders including sleep apnea. I would highly recommend a visit to the sleep disorder clinic for the sleep study if your insurance pays the cost (highly costly).
1327431 tn?1327075704 They may also be associated with sleep disorders (eg, sleep apnea, periodic limb movements), medical conditions that cause pain, psychiatric diseases (eg, anxiety, depression), or the use or withdrawal of alcohol, nicotine, or other substances. The investigations which will help to diagnose the type and cause for insomnia are Polysomnography, Multiple sleep latency test and Actigraphy.
Avatar n tn What you describe might be sleep paralysis. I would recommend that he see a sleep expert. There are sleep disorders that may accompany sleep paralysis. This would be especially true if he has daytime sleepiness or trouble sleeping at night.
Avatar n tn Go have a sleep study done, its very easy and non invasive. Many sleep disorders manifest themselves in different ways. Sleep Apnea for instance, or RLS (aka jumpy leg disease).
Avatar n tn Relax and try to go to sleep as early as possible. You can also get a sleep study done. Take care and share your thoughts.
Avatar n tn During the arousal, the patients may jerk or shake their body or limbs, depending on the severity of the sleep apnea. A number of unusual movement disorders may be associated with sleep like Alternating Leg Muscle Activation, Excessive Fragmentary Myoclonus to name a few. Please consult a physician and neurologist for management of the symptoms. Hope this helps you. Take care and regards!
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.
