I've had trouble ever since I stopped all my medications.
I didn't sleep for three days/nights straight during withdrawal.
I have been taking a third of one 10mg Ambien... don't know if it's in my head but it seems to work for me but I'm awake around 5am.... I try not to take the Ambien three days in a row.
I use this sleep meditation CD: www.http://store.chopra.com/productinfo.asp?item=160
...and I'll tell you it works like a charm... my husband also tried it a couple of nights and he was impressed!
Also I just got a Medipillow.... it says it's good for neck pain suffers..... you fill a bladder in it with water.... used it last night and so far so good!
Hope you get some sleep soon!
Slight reversal of the normal cervical curvature. Ther eis a 2mm antherolisthesis of C3 with respect to C4, a 2mm retrolisthesis of C5 with respect to C6 and a 2mm retrolisthesis of C6 with respect to C7

C2-C3 osteophytes medial to the right intervertebral foramen and involving the right uncovertebral joint with minimal to moderate foraminal narrowing.
C3-C4 herniation fo the disc medial to the right intervertebral foramen and encroaching uponthe medial aspect fo teh foramen measuring approx. 2.5mm in the AP diameter. There is marked compression of the right nerve root sleeve. There are osteophytes involving the right uncoverterbral joint with moderate to foraminal stenosis. There is minimal anterolisthesis of C3 with respect to C4
C4-C5 herniation of the disc in the midline measuring approx. 2.5mm in the AP diameter woth minimal flattening to the ventral aspect of the cord. There are osteophytes involving the right uncovertebral joint with moderate foraminal narrowing
C5-C6 posterocentral herniation of the disc measuring approx. 3mm in the AP diameter with flattening of the ventral aspect of the cord. There are osteophytes involving the right uncovertebral joint woth moderate foraminal narrowing. There is minimal retrolistesis of C5 with respect to C6
