Hello Dr Samuel N. Grief. I hope you not in a state of continuous grief. (small pun). I do have a quick answer, and I work in mostly in biologics with APis improving patients with MS. So back to my question, I am very motivated, a real go getter, i exercise and and I m very active. problem is I cant stay asleep and I am up every 1 to 3 hours, with my mind racing. I take 1/2 tablet Ambien CR every other day with a glass of wine, that usually does the tick, but lately I am feeling some sort of respiratory distress usually at night when I lie down. Im thinking it allergies but feel this drug: ms be taking its toll on my heart. Cant find any literature and Seeing a pulmonologist is a few weeks out? Should i be concerned?

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.

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
