Got a sharp pain during sleep. Around waist line, just above buttock. Not in thigh or lower. Relieved when laying on side. Sciatic nerve likely?

Local pain condition: Both the nature of pain, as well as its localization help to determine cause. Anterior waist pain is different from posterior pain. Nerve pain tends to radiate more. Sciatic pain typically tends to be more lower back, buttock and into the posterior thigh regions and to the sole of the foot.

I've urinated a little during sleep. 4 days already, Ever since my older sister started staying in my bed with me. I don't have any dreams?

Urinary symptoms: First, make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection by seeing your doctor.
Having another person in bed with you is difficult; you may not want to get up to urinate and wake your sister so your bladder overflows and causes the leakage at night.
It sounds as though there may possibly be some complicated family dynamics. Talking to a doctor about these issues may be very helpful. ...Read more

My 5weeks old son is making weird noises before and during sleep. It sounds like crackles or a car engine that would not start. Should we be worried?

Noisy breathing: How long has this been going on? If u noted the problem soon after birth, he may have laryngomalacia. Its a condition where the laryngeal portion of airway is floppy&falls in during breathing. If ur son is otherwise ok & does not turn blue or have difficulty breathing, he should outgrow it. With time, the cartilage will have more calcium in it&the floppiness will disappear. See ur pediatrician. ...Read more

During sleep yesterday I saw someone opened my room door but no one at home except me. Then I saw daylight inside my room @ 3-4am. Am I hallucinating?

Not really. Dreams!: What you're describing are not hallucinations in the sense of psychosis. There are, however, common hallucinatory like sensations that can occur just before, during and just after sleep stops. There are called Hypnopompic and Hypnogogic hallucinations. They are not true hallucinations but are more like illusions that seem very real. The most common are hearing bangs just before waking or sleep ...Read more

Improve sleep: Taking supplements to fix your sleep is not the cure. To improve your sleep the biggest question to ask is why are you unable to sleep in the first place. Do you snore at night or have difficulty breathing? Do nightmares keep you up? Perhaps it is too much caffeine or lack of exercise. Sometimes people have cannot turn off their brain and thus can't relax enough to sleep. ...Read more

Is it normal to have cortisol surge during sleep, causing slightly higher morning gluc level then bedtime level? Typical: morning ~ 98, bedtime ~83.

"Dawn phenomenon": Hi. Yes, cortisol begins to rise in the wee hours of the morning and is part of what leads to the "dawn phenomenon", the rise in glucose often seen beginning before awakening. I hate to assume, but assume you're diabetic or you wouldn't be checking your sugars. Based on your bedtime and morning sugars, at least, your diabetes looks very well controlled! ...Read more
