Morning usually i post in chronic pain or headache forum but today i would like to post here as i think i have some fatigue problems, I haven;t sleep much in the last two weeks maybe longer last night had to have been the worst, bags under my eyes, night mares etc, currently i am taking cipralex 10mg in the morning, but trying to get a good night sleep is almost impossible, i was just wondering what i can do or say to my physciatrist that will make him understand this.

Twiggy,

I am having the same problems for the past two weeks. I have not been diagnosed with CFS or Fibromyalgia. I have OCD and once I have a few days without a good nights sleep, I obsess about the coming night all day during work, play, social events etc. My doctor has me on Zoloft 150 mgs and Klonopin 5mg/2 times a day. I try everything. Last evening around 6:00, a I ran 5.5 miles on the treadmill in 45 minutes. I worked out like a psycho Saturday and Sunday. I don't know what to do. I actually don't think I'll ever get to sleep. This weekend I am thinking of skydiving so maybe when I'm trying to fall asleep all I can think about is falling from the sky. I have a job that demands me to be alert and right now I feel like I am a zombie. A worried, stressed out, anxious zombie though.

Maybe I should try a Sleep Aid although they scare me (addiction, not working, dependance)

Hello Wiley nice to meet u. Currently i am working full time and that is putting alot of stress on my body, i currently have no diagnosis for my back condition either, I know that it harf not to be worried about alot of this but a sleep aid might help u to get some well deserved sleep that your body can rest. DO you currently see a psychiatrist maybe u can talk to him about your sleep problem and he or she can prescribe something for you that will help. Hope to here from u again Twiggy2.

Hello i haven;t posted for a while. I am experinceing sleeping probs again not sure why. i go to bed relaxed but up every two hours sometimes. I am going to cut coffee out early on in the evening because that as an effect. Drink a warm glass of milf and see if that helps any if this continues more i will call my family doc and explain to him whats happening. i imagine that most people would feel cranky after not getting a good night sleep as i know i do. anyway does anyone have any suggestions other that sleep meds that would help. We don;t have alot of money to keep putting out money for prescribed crap. Thanks Twiggy2

Thanks hippimpmom2 for your reply. I can take ativan for anxiety and help with sleep or zoplicone. I was doing ok for almost a month without this happening i am suppose to go back in a month to see my family doc i am going to have to start a sleep pattern diary to keep track and bring it with me at my appointment. I was suppose to start one the first time i was having this kind of problem but i never did becuase it didn;t happen as much but now that it is going to be a concern for me again i will do so in hopes that we can come to some kind of treatment that will work. I will let you know how things go. Twiggy2 P.S nice to meet you.
