As a massage therapist who gets many people that sleep on their side and are in severe pain in shoulder and neck. How do you change their sleep habit?
My therapist recommended taking a magnesium supplement for general anxiety and help with sleep. How long does it take to notice effects, if any?
Careful which type: Magnesium citrate is a good bowel prep. Magnesium oxide is a good relaxant. It is not designed to put you to sleep, but it can help relax tense muscles. One or two pills of 400 mg each per day should have some positive effect within one week to 10 days. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal to be so anxious and dizzy/disoriented when not getting enough sleep? I tried ativan (lorazepam) as prescribed from therapist but it's not been working they told me to try 2mg valuim.
Some advice: Sometimes getting too little sleep can cause such symptoms. But taking Ativan or or similar drugs can cause such symptoms as well. The big question is how all these symptoms began, whether you had symptoms before taking Ativan, and do you have an anxiety or other psychological issue that may be addressed with talk therapy and a small dose of SSRI such as Prozac or Zoloft (sertraline). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Haven't been sleeping well at all, ER told me to try 1 mg of ativan (lorazepam) and I did, no effect just more tossing and turning, therapist gave me 2mg valuim and told me to try that lasts longer? Anxiety 10/10
I have severe fatigue, no motivation, no energy. I sleep fine and really have no stress. I have seen therapists and family doctors.
If doctors have not: found a medical explanation and therapy has not been helpful, and if you have not yet had a psychiatric evaluation, then consider one. There are many possible explanations but must consider if depression and/or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), a debilitating and complex disorder characterized by profound fatigue, may be producing your symptoms. Best regards for relief. ...Read more

Yes but: Yes , but if this is more than an occasional problem, the situation should be more fully evaluated. As always you want to be sure that there is no physical problems and that would include drug and alcohol issues. Obviously psychological problems can be cause of insomnia and they can be addressed by psychotherapy or medication or both. There are good sleeping meds such as Ambien (zolpidem) when appropriate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
