I've had a terrible time trying to sleep for the last month or so now. I am not having abnormal BMs at night, however if I'm lucky enough to fall asleep, I'm still waking up 2-6 times to urinate. I'm not even drinking more than 3 glasses of water after 6pm! I thought it was a UTI, but I never have any painful urination... my face feels flushed, and hot, yet my hands and feet are freezing... and my temperature reads 35.7 degrees celsius!
None of this is new, it comes and goes... I know I should see a doctor, but it took so long just to get any help for the IBS, I don't want to go through it again unless it's serious. More than anything, I just want to sleep. I was practically passing out earlier, and now I can't even stay still in bed - and feeling like I need to urinate 2 minutes after I just went doesn't help either.
Also, in the last several months I have this weird thing... when I lay down to sleep I sometimes experience high pitched ringing in my ears... and my entire body feels numb. I literally jerk awake just to *feel* again... it's so weird. :( I dunno... sorry for the rambling, I'm just exhausted from lack of sleep. I feel like I can *go* again... 4th time in the last hour. It's going to be a long night.

“Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.” ~ Emanuel Swedenborg
