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.

Since March I have had level II pitting edema in my legs and feet (about 8-15 of fluid) twice. My cardiologist refers to this as right-sided heart failure. My liver and kidneys are fine, EKG and echo normal and no blood clots. I had a right heart catheter that revealed a pulmonary wedge pressure of 20. They did not check the left side of my heart. I was prescribed Lasix and told take it from time to time as needed, and Spiranolactone to take indefinetly. I have mild obstructive sleep apnea and was told this may be causing the elevated right-sided pressure which eventually leads to the edema. I wear a CPAP every night. I feel very tired at points in the day to where I cannot hold my eyes open, and I am also extremely bloated in my stomach. I feel pressure near my sternum. A tight band sensation wraps from my back around to chest at the sternum level, which makes wearing a bra complete torture. The last thing is that most mornings upon waking I will gag until I vomit. Please help me I am desperate for answers and have been to ten doctors. Stacie

I suffered a compound fractured patella requiring surgery/wiring 8 weeks ago. Since then I have struggled to get back into any sort of normal sleeping pattern resulting in about 4-6 interrupted hours of sleep at different times over the course of the day. I have been taking 10mg diazepam that has helped with anxiety but not sleeping

about two weeks ago, i started waking up every night, not sure what causes me to wake. but, while i am laying there, my heart stops beating for a second and then restarts as normal. it will happen about three or four more times and then i eventually fall back to sleep. and then two nights ago, every time i go to lay down i get a horrible headache, when i stand up, it goes away. so, i was just wondering if i should be worried?
