I'm concerned: that you most likely have a serious "sleep disorder" and you are correct that TENSION and STRESS are playing a role in the problem ! Speak with your Primary Care Giver ASAP and ask if you need a referral ....\ Hope this helps! Dr z

There's been a change in the format of setting up telemedicine visits over the past few weeks on HealthTap. Instead of going to the URL I directed you to use above please call CUSTOMER SUPPORT at 650-376-6110 to schedule a LIVE consultation if you'd care to discuss your question in more detail. Cheers!.
