    Default Trouble is!

    I can not get good night sleep at all some nights are better than others but most nights find self waking up at least once and not beinng able to fal back for while. It sucks and leads to me not feeling closes to my self next day. I also than keep my boyfriend up which he is allways so caring but i feel bad. If i take so pills i can go back fine but i wanna not have to. Any natural suggestions or things you guys have found to help?

    Steve is right. This is a problem we all have. If you can find an answer please share it because I have yet to find it!

    All of us go through that, it took me years for me to finally go to accept I needed to pills. I have to admit it has been nice sleeping through out the night and I might wake up once for the bathroom. It used to take me hours to fall asleep and I would only sleep for a couple of hours then wake up.

    I know that Melatonin is supposed to be bad for Lupies, but my rheumy suggested trying it. It works for me, without any ill effects.
    I've found that it works better if I take two Magnesium Citrates with it. I've also found that it makes me sleepy for about 12 hours, so I take it at 8 pm if I intend to get up by 8 am. I'm sleeping much better now - I sleep well until 2:30 or 3 am, make my trip to the restroom, and then sleep well again after a minimum of tossing and turning. I've tested out skipping it some nights, and I go right back to waking up every two hours all night.

    I'm weird and react badly to most medications, so I'm just glad that I seem to be weird and don't have a problem with Melatonin.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    I use a muscle relaxer. It calms my nerves and musclesand give me six straight hours of sleep. It's also easier to fall back to sleep after a bathroom trip. I sleep much better when I take it, and after 40 years of trying to sleep.......

    Sometimes we have to rely on meds.

    Meditation helps
    A glass of your favorite alcohol if you can use
    A hot relaxing bath
    Sex- tee hee



    These are all the natural non meds that I can think of

    I wish there was and answer to a good nights sleep. I get on the average 4 hours sometimes because of pain and sometimes because when i wake up i cannot go back to sleep it is frustrating. Bonita
