Hi there sweetyfeisty, I can relate to your sleep issue. I m being treated by Mayo Clinic and I haven't slept in 7 months..chronic insomnia. The way they practice is very strict. Their ER would kick me out if I went to be treated there.
Re: your meds. is there a reason you are not taking ambien, lunesta or sonata? These are sleep meds that we consider gold standards. They do not work for everyone obviously (like most rxs, your mileage will vary)
Have you gone to a sleep lab yet? I am going tomorrow nite and am terrified. I don't see how I could have sleep apnea if I can't sleep all night and am unable to take naps. Maybe I should bet the lab techs money and put up $100 that I don't have apnea. So after being awake allnight in the hospital, I would have something to look forward to.Gosh, could they skew the results, though???
My best, ginger
