: Hi,

: I don't know if anyone is in a similar scenario, but my boyfriend has had erractic sleep patterns for almost 3 years due to chronic pain. If lucky, he sleeps 2 to 3 hours a night (usually interrupted). Currently, he is taking Neurontin and Oxicontin. At night to sleep, he takes Tylenol Pm, Melatonin, and sometimes Ambien (not with the Tylenol). Nothing appears to help him. Sometimes, he tries to work to make himself exhausted...but that makes him more agitated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S.-He will not try hypnosis. My email address is MRcl3@aol.com. Thank you. Belinda Bishop


Belinda,
I have been experiencing sleep problems and excessive daytime sleepiness since I was in my mid teens (I am now 35). I was recently diagnosed with ideopathic hypersomnia. Although, I don't think this is your boyfriends problem I have spent a lot of time analyzing me sleep, sleep habits, and overall physical wellness. I very often had problems at night with neck, back, foot, and leg pains that would not allow me to be comfortable during the night, thus making for a terrible nights sleep. I now have been going to a chiropractor for two months. Not only am I able to lie comfortably at night, but also breathing and sinus problems that would cause me to wake during the night, have disappeared. A word of caution though, be very careful if you decide to seek chiropractic care. My wife visited a chiropractor a few years back that was into some very questionable natural practices. I'm sure if you are interested, my Dr. may be able to recommend someone in your area...just drop me an e-mail.Although I am still battling my daytime sleepiness, my body physically feels better than it ever has.
