Need a doctor: You should have a check up with a physical examination and blood testing, to see if there's something wrong which would respond to some form of treatment. You also need ongoing drug abuse treatment, if you want to stay clean and off drugs, which is what I recommend. Meth Addiction can be tough, you need all the help you can get and need to do whatever it takes to stay clean. Good luck. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of hynogogcic jerks can u wake up gasping for air for instance?

Anxiety: Many folks who are highly anxious have a fear on not getting enough air. When we are between sleeping and waking we can feel quite vulnerable and pull out of the relaxed state with a start. Get help from your doc or a clinical psychologist, more likely the latter will be the one to help you through this. Magnesium level can be tested for and supplemented if needed. Low mag can cause jerks. ...Read more

Get : Get yourself an appointment with a sleep medicine specialist in your area. It may take some work/time, but there is help available and you can lead a normal life with proper management. Yes, chances are that you may have to manage this condition from now on.

Would sleep issues with bipolar include body aches, takes a while to wake up, and irriatable every single time I wake up.  Known to fall asleep everywh?

Possible: Bipolar disoder can cause a variety of problems with sleep and mood. However, the "falling asleep everywhere" is not a common problem with bipolar disorder, unless you are experiencing severe depression. If you are currently taking medication, it is possible that you are experiencing some sedation that may be interfering with your normal sleep cycle.

It depends. With any: illness, including depression, a complete evaluation is always the deciding factor, along with the patient, and prior to prescribing anything. Once the patient and the provider have discussed the risks, benefits, alternatives to the treatment, based upon the findings, then would a med be justified. In your case, there are many meds that may be beneficial for you. Please discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

How long does it take for the side effects of lyrica (pregabalin) and zolpidem go away? I feel sedated + dificult the breath when waking up meds for 16d

How long does it take for the side effects of lyrica (pregabalin) and zolpidem go away? I feel sedated + dificult the breath when waking up meds for 16d

Meds go away: It could take a couple of days for the effects of these medications to leave your system. With that being said it is unlikely that these two medications would be causing you sedation and breathing problems 16 days later. I would recommend that you follow-up with your prescribing physician on this issue. It is likely that something else is going on. ...Read more
