ive tried EVERYTHING i could come up with and i just cant sleep. I went to my doctor and i was perscribed medication, but that didnt work, Ive searched the internet, asked friends, and i even tried some wierd sleeping app on my phone, nothing works. Im getting kinda worried that my mind just cant handle it, i really need some help.
if your an addict well that's what would happen. If that's an insominia like i used to have 15 years ago, then try to calm and have a plenty of relaxation, rest and sleep. Try to sleep in you regular time it at night your regular time is 11pm then you have to sleep at that fuckin time... do it regularly until you get well. If it dosn't work, try to go to mental hospital. no joke man. relax and don't be freakin' fuckin out!!! "TRY TO FIND YOUR INNER PEACE"
Ok firstly. You would shut down without sleep for 4 days. But thats if you can stay awake because without warning you will fall asleep every 5 min. For enough enery for a few more minutes. But i know you dont mean 7 days. A week. You would be dead. But. Trust me. Listen to this with headphones. While in a dark place lying down an this will calm you down. Goodluck

** Children can also suffer from insomnia. The signs of sleep deprivation may appear at school—poor scholastic achievement, irritation, lack of concentration—perhaps leading to a wrong diagnosis of hyperactivity.
Some children fight sleep, preferring to sing, talk, or listen to someone telling stories—anything instead of going to bed. This may just be a ruse to get parental attention. In some cases, however, a child may be afraid to sleep because of frequent nightmares related to horror movies, violent news programs, or quarreling in the home. By promoting a peaceful and loving atmosphere at home, parents can help to avoid these problems. Obviously, medical advice should be sought if symptoms persist. Without a doubt, a good night’s sleep is as important for children as it is for adults.
*** THE PRINCIPAL CAUSES OF INSOMNIA
▪ MEDICAL: Alzheimer’s disease; apnea, closure of the upper air passage during sleep; restless legs syndrome; Parkinson’s disease; periodic limb movement disorder, movements accompanied by periods of awakening; asthma; heart and digestive diseases
▪ PSYCHIATRIC: depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder
▪ ENVIRONMENTAL: light, noise, heat, cold, uncomfortable mattress, restless mate
▪ OTHER CAUSES: alcohol and drug abuse, side effects of some drugs
** DIAGNOSING SLEEP DISORDERS
A polysomnogram is a group of tests performed to map sleep while the patient is sleeping under the most normal conditions possible. The following are the basic elements necessary for an evaluation.
▪ Electroencephalogram—The tracing of electrical activity in the brain, used to classify and quantify the various stages of sleep.
▪ Electrooculogram—Records eye movements observed during REM sleep.
▪ Electromyogram—Used to monitor the tonus of chin and leg muscles during REM sleep.
▪ Electrocardiogram—Used to monitor heartbeat throughout the night.
▪ Respiratory airflow and movements—Measured by recording the flux of air through the nose and the mouth as well as the movement of the abdomen and the thorax.
▪ Oxyhemoglobin saturation—Measurement of the level of oxygen in the blood vessels determined by means of a device called an oximeter, attached to the patient’s finger.
personally i don't think this website is the best place to go to, none of us are experts in insomnia. My dad has insomnia and he really struggles, but what he does is go to bed a little earlier every day, and wake up a bit earlier each morning. Then you get so tired you're happy to go to bed. Also you need to aerate your room, open the windows so it's not too stuffy, maybe read a book you've read a million times (so it bores you and you doze off) and don't nap during the day. Aside from that, not much i can reccomend, maybe go to a sleep specialist and ask them. You're not alone, millions suffer from this, and it does get better! Good night x
What did your Dr. persribe? Lunesta, Ambien, ect? They are all hypnotics but not very strong at all. I am not sure of your age, you can try benydryl it helps there is OTC sleep meds that have the diphenelhydromine in it but its a joke. I have sevier insomnia, and with all the prescription sleeping meds (benzodiazipines) hypnotics, they dont help me either so i guess my next step is a barbituate but that is few and far between. Hope this helps some. Temazapam, halcion, doral (hard to find), fluazapam, drs dont like to prescribe these but some might. good luck
i was in the same situation as you stormy. and there is one full proof way to fix it. take me seriously, because im not joking. i dont care how old you are, have someone buy you some fire ball, or sky vodka, or kentucky delux. sit on your bed, and drink until your body shuts down, you'll passout or sleep. your welcome
