Insonmia for couple weeks, have no problem falling alsleep, but wake up in 3-4 hours.

Insonmia for couple weeks, have no problem falling alsleep, but wake up in 3-4 hours.

Try this: Don't look at a clock or expose yourself (more than necessary - i.e., toilet) to any sensory stimulation - just close your eyes, roll over and 'continue' sleeping. Some very slow breaths focusing on sinking deeper w/ each exhale may help. If this works, great! if it doesn't, ask your doctor or find a sleep clinic. There are books you can read for ideas too. In general, limit arousal. Best wishes! ...Read more

At night while sleeping, i wake up with a racing heart&tons of drainage down throat.I cough after.The fluid&racing heart go handinhand, for months now?

Postnasal drip: Postnasal dripping of mucus while you are recumbent in bed may be caused by excessive dryness or dust collection in your bedroom. I believe that the rapid heart beat is secondary to the nasal dripping and not due to cardiac pathology. Taking an antihistamine like benadryl (diphenhydramine) at bedtime may prevent symptoms but avoid decongestants like Sudafed or neosynephrine nasal spray which accelerate the heart ...Read more

Been taking nortriptyline for headaches. Almost a year on it. 40mg before bed. Headaches are better but waking up in mornin & feelin alive is hard?

Side effect possibly: I'd check with your doctor to check into the possibility of the medication causing a side effect that you are not comfortable with and to see if an option exists. I think nortriptyline works very well in many patients to control chronic headaches but certainly I have a number who do not tolerate it well and we have to switch them to something else. Many options so I'm hopeful you'll find one ...Read more
