I have sleep apnea and didn t get a good night s rest last night. This morning my blood pressure was 170 over 105 according to my home digital monitor. I did almost vomit, but it was more like that vomit reflex when you smell something rancid. Should staying home from work to get more sleep be enough to level myself out? I m 38, 5 10 230lbs. I don t smoke but occasionally I am exposed to second hand smoke. I drink maybe a few times a year. I don t use any illegal drugs, tend to avoid taking medications at all unless I NEED to and haven t used any OTC like Tylenol or aspirin in more than a month maybe.

I ve been in and out of my doctor s office all summer with a variety of complaints. Back pain, numbness/pressure in my thigh and then shoulder. upset stomach/queasiness, cramping. I ve had a lower back x-ray which was negative. Some blood tests to evaluate my thyroid and my doctor said to just see if anything looked off, all ok. And I was tested for a UTI. I m now in physical therapy, ostensibly to treat the back pain. And I have Xanax to take for sleeplessness and anxiety at night. I m willing to believe that I am anxious--but I really think it s because I don t feel well and I don t know what s wrong with me. I m a 27 year old female, generally very healthy, I eat well and exercise regularly (teach aerobics). And I d just like to feel better. As of late, I think I m having night sweats and I wake up throughout the night. The back pain is also now in my upper back and I have pressure, feeling of pushing on my ribs most of the time. Also, my normal temperature is around 96. I don t want to continue to haunt my dr s office, but should I be concerned?

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
