my 6 yr old daughter has been dealing with a breathing tic (we think) for over 3 months. she continously takes deep breaths and at times, when outdoors but not overly exherting, she places her hands on her knees to breath in deeply while expanding her lungs. her twice taken xrays look normal, according to her doctor. we have taken her to a child pulmonoligist and my daughter was given a hemeopathic supplement that has not accomplished any change. at times my daughter complaines of rapid heartbeat and at times nausea. as she is sleeping all seems to appear normal. my wife and i are considering bringing her to mayo to get to the bottom of this. your thoughts? my 6 yr old daughter is normal in ht and weight and has no medical history.

Does the rocking of a ship increase insomnia in those who have recently had a stroke and exhibit an increased startle reaction? I recently shared a cabin with a stroke victim who claimed she could not sleep all night. What I noticed is that repeatedly in the middle of the night she would suddenly and violently wake up without cause and think I was making noise. She also the week before the trip underwent an invasive procedure endoscopicly to see if she needed a stint placed in her artery. Could she be reacting to that, too? She claimed she slept better once we were in a hotel on land and I got my own cabin. Others in my family report that I am a quiet sleeper, so I believe I am not the cause of her insomnia which has plagued her all her life. A very light sleeper, or is something more serious going on that her doctor needs to know about? Thanks for your answer in advance. Nina Daniel
