Is this a sleeping disorder?

A: I have delayed sleep phase syndrome, but you must meet other criteria as well... It is Insomnia - Chronic inability to fall asleep or remain asleep for an adequate length of time Something to help would be running before you go to bed, since you use more energy and your body will be more tired so you will probably fall asleep easier.

What is this sleep disorder?

What is this sleeping disorder?

A: Just wondering, how do you know your still not just asleep dreaming? I''m psychically awake. I can get up and walk around. Overactive ESP? Maybe you''re having the kind of dreams Hertaru is always asking about. Sounds like lucid dreaming to me. Can you decide that you will fly & then go ahead and fly in these dreams? I do, do a lot of lucid dreaming, not always by choice. but if I''m think about something a lot I will do it. Like one time I was getting my new computer delivered and had a dream about that, That works for negative as well. BUT that is not what I''m talking about here. The thing is my question is really unpleasant. I will feel STUCK in my awake dream thing and I don''t get any real sleep. Sorry if you don''t understand what...


Is there something we could do for sleep disorders.He is 44 and has trouble going to sleep and staying asleep.He worries excessively on everything

A: Health advice on sleep disorders The sleep disorder you describe sounds more like a mental than a physical problem! There is, however, help at hand. If you have trouble sleeping, the first thing you must do is beef up on your exercise. If you already exercise, you must increase the duration of exercise.

sleep disorders - what is the best over the counter medicine to sleep?

A: Hello cantwait. The otc sleeping drugs aren`t the most powerfull, and not meant to treat the more severe, sleep disorders. Two that you might find a help are Sominex and Nytol. Regards, pledge. Hi, depending what country you live in, you can buy Melatonin OTC. it occurs naturally in our bodies so it isn`t chemical based. Although a natural product, it can be quite potent so start off on a low dose. As far as I`m aware you can buy it in strengths of 3,5 & 6mg tablets. You must have a dark room to sleep in for the tablets to work most effectively. They worked well for me.. I alternate between Unisom and Tylenol PM so that they stay effective and my body doesn`t build a tolerance to one or the...
