Back in the day I would be able to fall asleep at the time I want what happened?

I struggle to fall asleep and wake up every few hours regardless of where I am. Zopiclone did not help much. What might be the problem?

Bad dreams: If you rule out the external causes mentioned by dr. Olson the remaining cause is waking during dreams. We go into rem sleep, in which we dream about every 2 hours at the beginning of the night and about every 75 minutes at the end of sleep. The bad dream may be awakening you without your remembering the dream at all. This is more likely if you awaken with a fast pulse. If so, see a therapist. ...Read more

I get numbness in my right leg and at the same time dizziness to the point where I think I am going to pass out in a split second.

I get numbness in my right leg and at the same time dizziness to the point where I think I am going to pass out in a split second.

See below.: I recommend that you have someone take you to the emergency room to have this evaluated. I cannot tell from your information how old you are or anything about your medical history, so it is difficult to know how serious this is. If you have your own doctor, you can certainly call them first. ...Read more

What can I expect when going in to get two teeth pulled?

What can I expect when going in to get two teeth pulled?

To be numb: You can expect a lot of pushing and a little pulling. Some bleeding after followed by some oozing of blood for the first 24 hours. After the anesthetic wears off, you should expect to need something like advil (ibuprofen) for the pain. Maybe if the extractions were complicated you might need some rx pain meds. If there is an infection you might be on antibiotics. ...Read more

How to destress quickly, when one has a lot going on in a day..? Sometime it seems i don't have time to breath during the day, what can I do to relax?

How to destress quickly, when one has a lot going on in a day..? Sometime it seems i don't have time to breath during the day, what can I do to relax?

Prioritize: There's only 24 hours in a day, 6-8 hours of which is for sleep, the rest is for work, physical and mental activities. At work, you have to space yourself. If you're tired or exhausted, stop working and do some slow deep breathing, neck/stretching exercise, look at nice imagery or just close your eyes and think of nothing. Our mind and body is like a car. We need stops and break every now & then. ...Read more

I am a truck driver. I am getting a cortisone injection to my left hip for the first time. Is it ok to go to work after the injection? Climbing up and down getting in and out of the cab I would say be an issue do you agree?

I am a truck driver. I am getting a cortisone injection to my left hip for the first time. Is it ok to go to work after the injection? Climbing up and down getting in and out of the cab I would say be an issue do you agree?

Treat the cause?: There should be no problem in continuing your normal activities after a cortisone injection. However, I'm wondering if the act of climbing in and out of your truck is in part the cause for your hip pain? If it is and you don't change anything about the way you're doing that - you might find the cortisone injection doesn't work the way you want it to. ...Read more

Is it normal to be able to wake up in the morning and then like an hour later go back to bed? I have always been this way. I just love to sleep.

Normal: There are many variations on sleep patterns.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I am one week post c-section. Is it ok to go up and down stairs? We don't have a bathroom on the the first floor and i don't want to be stuck upstairs

I am one week post c-section. Is it ok to go up and down stairs? We don't have a bathroom on the the first floor and i don't want to be stuck upstairs

Yes: It is generally not harmful to walk up and down the stairs after surgery like a c-section. It may be painful, so try to limit the number of trips. You may find it less uncomfortable to walk down the stairs backwards as it may be less of a strain on your incision. Always have help close by when taking the stairs. ...Read more

I itch at night when I try to sleep it starts in one spot then jumps from one spot to another I don't itch during the day explained this to my doctor ?

Allergies, possibly: It is possible to be allergic to the material in sheets. It is less likely in the setting you describe for sheets to be infested with scabies, since the itching would be with you all day. It is worth a trip to your doctor for examination and testing. ...Read more

What makes one unable to go to sleep at a reasonable time? For the past few days i'm am unable to fall asleep before 12am. Why? What can I do to help?

Sleep hygiene: Most sleep experts recommend keeping your sleep patterns structured to maximize the chance of good regular sleep. Attempting to sleep at your usual bedtime, in a dark/quiet room, is recommended. Be up at your regular time in the morning, avoid napping during the day, & attempt again to go to sleep at your regular time. Relaxation techniques can be very helpful for sleep. See your doctor for help. ...Read more
