What type of sleep disorder(s) could this be?

A: Perhaps you are overwhelmed with your life. Sounds like you need a vacation. I wouldn''t be so quick as to label it as a ‘disorder'' yet. By lately @Sampson, I mean the past 3 or 4 months :-/ I don''t know, that sounds terrible! Some parts of what you described happen to me sometimes. I''m really accustomed to sleeping with my SO and when we''re apart, I get really anxious around bedtime, and suffer from the same need to exhaust myself. I''ll often go to sleep at 7 or 8 am when he''s not around, just because I can''t sleep before then. I''ll have weird dreams, sometimes sleep for 4 hours and get up, sometimes sleep the whole day. It''s miserable. I''ve started...

My son is 15 and has a sleeping disorder. I don''t want him on any medication as he is too young and so please suggest some home remedies. He is a poor eater too.

A: The problem your son is facing sounds like it has some simple solutions to it. The first thing to tackle is his habit of eating poorly. Generally, poor eaters are typically poor sleepers as well. So you should start ensuring that your son eats properly and well. The solution may be that you might have to work a little harder than usual at ensuring that he eats well and properly. Try to make different types of food so that you can zero in on what he likes to eat. Give him more of that and your problem may just be solved. You can also try to give him small but rich snacks throughout the day. You could try to give him things like nuts and cheesy sandwiches. This may also show positive results.

I have a sleep disorder and take Adderall. If I go 2 days without it, I sleep. But when I start it again, the medicine takes days to work again. Why?

A: Adderall (dextroamphetamine+amphetamine) is a psychostimulant which increases the brain chemicals dopamine and norepinephrine to improve symptoms of ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and narcolepsy. When a medication is started, in order for it to get to what is called the ''steady state,'' it takes, on average, 5 half-lives to reach this state. Steady state is when the medication is at the therapeutic level in the body twenty four hours a day. The half-life is how long it takes the drug to be eliminated by half the amount in the body. The average half-lives for the two ingredients in Adderall (dextroamphetamine+amphetamine) are 10 and 13 hours. Therefore, the steady states would be reached at 5 times those hours, which are 50 and 65 hours on...


sleep Disorder?

A: I"ll help insofar as I can, Alyssa. While we know a lot about dreams we can"t say what they"re for (though there are several reasonable theories), and we know absolutely nothing about interpreting the content. Several factors are known to increase dreaming but I don"t know of any that reduce them. It"s likely more a matter of controlling the waking during the dream than of reducing the dreams themselves. The best explanation and management will come from a sleep clinic. Here you simply sleep over a night or two while your head is instrumented (painless recording sensors are attached to the surface). They may call for a neurological workup, which will require a referral from your or their doctor. To find one, go to Google (if you...

Do I have a sleeping disorder?

A: Have you considered going to a sleep clinic? We can all, here, take stabs and guesses at what is going on with your sleeping patterns but without more information and more knowledge on the area all it will be is guesses. Talk to your parents about getting you into a sleep clinic so they can study your sleeping and possibly figure out what the true problem is. Once the problem is discovered a Dr can go over it with you and help you find safe ways of dealing with it so you can get the sleep you need to be active during the day. You probably should see your doctor to have him do a complete evaluation of you. It may be nothing at all, but you could have


Various forms of sleep disorders

A: Given the symptoms you reported (sitting up in bed while sleeping, stop breathing at night, and gasping out loudly for air afterwards, history of sleepwalking, and snoring), you might be experiencing two forms of sleep disorders. The sitting in bed might be a mild form of the sleepwalking. sleepwalking is more often seen in children where it is supposed to be caused by a delay in maturation. The snoring and breathing problem while sleeping might be related to obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea might be caused by brain injury, old age and increased soft...
