I woke up after about 8 hours sleep with a racing heart. For over 4 hours in has been above 100 and as high as 134. I can feel it with my skin through out my body. My Garmin HR says it has remain elevated at this rate since 6:40 am. My normal resting rate is 57. I am about 300 lbs, 65 years old and exercise regularly. I am probably low on iron right now. I am starting a head ache.

I ve had trouble sleeping for 3 months now, waking up 3 or 4 times in the night and at about 4 or 5 am. I ve been to the doctor, tried some sleeping pills for a few nights (they made me too groggy until 10:30am and I had to be up at 7am for work, so stopped). They referred me for CBT but I ve heard nothing yet and got my own therapist now privately, for various things, not just the the sleep. After three sessions she thinks I m doing pretty well, but has given me techniques to relax. I ve been to a hypnotherapist twice, the 2nd time worked for two nights, and have tried MP3 downloads, none of which worked. I ve just started a new job and have spent hours feeling almost painfully tired in the face of trying to work and living for the weekend so I can sleep and not have to get up before I ve had enough sleep. Today I couldn t quite manage it before crying, and wailing with it. I haven t cried properly for a long time, but needed to weeks ago when I had some upset with a friend and even then couldn t let it out, so I was so tired that I cried properly. I m sure it ll help, but I just don t know what more I can do. I can try more exercise and relaxation, and turning the pc/tv off earlier, but I can hardly make it through a week at work at the moment which I can t afford. I have an appointment with my GP, but to be honest, I get little real understanding or help from my doctors (whichever one is in today, anyway) when everything comes down to anxiety that I ve dealt with on and off for years. Is there anything I ve missed? I tried staying up until 2am to be too tired to wake up, but I still woke up, still felt exhausted, and didn t have a week or two clear to let it work any better. Going to be at 10pm is better than 11pm or midnight, but the constant waking up is ruining any real benefit.

A few hours ago I was sleeping on my couch with my head on the arm rest, and after I woke up, my left ear was numb. I figured it had gone to sleep or something of the sort, but a few hours later it still has a numb feeling. Upon various searches, I am thinking that it is a pinched nerve, but I m not too sure. Any ideas?

I am in Vet school and I had a test. I woke up early today to study and when I woke up i immediately felt nauseous and threw up. Could this be due to lack of sleep (i had only about 4 hours of sleep). I also felt nauseous earlier this week when I had about 6 hours of sleep and dry heaved immediately after waking up.
