have you asked your doctor to prescribe some sleep aids? i take ambien occasionally and it works very well.
Hi I did the same thing last night. I hav'nt said anything to my doctor about meds for sleep!!! I have sleep apnea. and wear a CPAP mask when I sleep. I also grind by teeth and wear a bite guard to bed. I think it's stress. My husband job is cuting back a lot. Some have been laid off. So far my husband has'nt been. But his hours have been cut a lot. Many days he does'nt work a all!!! His job has cut back on other things too. Like our heath ins. has gone up so much it's hard to pay what they don't pay. His job also says if things don't get better they may cut out our heath ins. complety. And I don't have a job.
All this stress is making my Lupus symtoms worse. Sorry I went into all this. But thats why I not sleeping!!!
Hi again, I can't remember the last time I slept all night. I toss and turn each night, changing positions to be more comfortable due to hip and knee pain,etc... Also insomnia, I seem to wake at 3 each night or if my husband gets up for work at 4:30 I can't fall back to sleep after. I take adavan (an anxiety pill) to help me sleep.
Julie46, Sorry you have trouble sleeping also. Sounds like you have some of the same problems I have. I'm here a lot late at night playing games and reading threads.
