Hi Doctor, My name is XXXXXX and I am seeking a professional’s perspective regarding my sleeping issues and whether or not I should be concerned. About once or twice a week for the past 6 months, I find myself unable to fall asleep even a wink. Over the past few weeks, things have gotten worse. This past week, I haven’t been able to sleep at all since the nap I took on Monday afternoon (it is now Friday at 5:00AM so roughly 85 hours sans snooze). I am experiencing hallucinations and an impaired cognitive ability. Here may be some of the underlying causes of my insomnia: 1. Stress and Anxiety. I am at one of, if not the most, stressful periods of my life thus far. Plus this insomnia isn’t exactly helping to relieve any anxiety, so this could be the cause. However, I did take (on two separate nights of course) a Xanax and a klonopin , both of which were successful in greatly relieving my stress and anxiety, but they failed to help me produce any z’s. 2. Medication. Specifically, Adderall . Although this is the easiest explanation for my insomnia, I’m all but certain that this has had very little to do with it. I say this because of my experiences over the past two weekends. I have been taking Adderall for many years now (currently 45mg per day) and I’m all too familiar with the intense hunger and overwhelming sleepiness that comes the day or two after I stop taking it. Unfortunately, however, the past two weekends have been much different. I was able to nap both afternoons, but my nights were still sleepless and it was nothing like the comatose 48 hours that I’ve grown accustomed to. I am further concerned because Ambien , a drug I’ve been taking with successful results for as long as I’ve been taking Adderall, seems to have lost its effect on me in an abrupt fashion. To put it into perspective, I’ve taken between 5-10 milligrams for many years now with very little effects of a tolerance build up. Tonight, I took 20 milligrams (out of desperation) and it feels like if I took two tic-tacs it would have had the same result. I have also tried antihistamines and Nyquil , both of which used to KNOCK ME OUT. No luck. In your professional opinion, do you think my insomnia is being brought on by a combination of stress and stimulants, or might there be some sort of physiological or hormonal explanation that proves Wikipedia simply have all the answers? In either case, what course of action would you REcoMmend (Sleep pun!)? I apologize for turning this into an essay, and thank you for any guidance you can offer. Help me sleep again and I promise to dedicate my first dream to you. Sincerely,

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
