Will I ever be able to sleep through the night with addisons?

Will I ever be able to sleep through the night with addisons?

Absolutely: Because your adrenals are not quite up to par, your hormone levels are a bit off, which means that your "sleep architecture" is disrupted. But if you sleep in the dark (including night lights), turn off all electronics well before bedtime, take a warm bath before bed, keep the room temperature down, clear your head of intrusive thoughts, and maintain a regular sleep schedule, you should be fine. ...Read more

Talk to the doc who prescribes your meds about the safest way to stop them. Talk to your therapist, too, about maximizing the use of your coping strategies (hopefully you have been given some). ...Read more

Calm flight: You might try Melatonin, which is OTC. But check with your pcp first. An eye mask may also help. Avoid caffeine the day before until you've landed as it will keep you awake and heighten anxiety. Listen to "sleep music" or whatever soothing sounds you prefer on youtube.

What can I do to help me get to sleep at night? Trouble getting to sleep i will be sleeping on the chair, but when i go to bed be wide awake.

Lots : Lots of people have problems getting to sleep, staying asleep, or both. In many cases, poor sleep is caused by bad sleep habits. The good news is that bad sleep habits can be fixed by good sleep hygiene. The even better news is that good sleep hygiene doesn't cost much, and unlike some pills, won't leave people feeling groggy in the morning. Here are some basic sleep hygiene tips: it is best to wake up at about the same time, and to go to sleep at about the same time, 7 days a week. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods in the hours before bedtime. Have a consistent, relaxing bedtime routine. A warm bath, a good book, listening to relaxing music, stretching exercises, or watching a low-key television show are good options before bedtime. Use the bed and bedroom for sleep, not for studying, television, telephone, hobbies, or surfing the internet. Make the bedroom comfortable, quiet, and dark. In the morning, get exposure to bright light. The morning is also a good time to get physical exercise, which boosts energy during the day. Avoid napping. Many medications can interfere with sleep or can make people drowsy during the day. A talk with a doctor can sort these problems out. Signs of a severe sleeping problem include falling asleep at work, at school, during conversations, during meals, or while driving. People with severe sleeping problems need to see their doctor right away. Even people with mild sleeping problems can be drowsy during the day. Never drive when drowsy or sleepy, and if sleepiness occurs while driving, pull over and take a nap. ...Read more

Family Doc: Your friendly family pcp is always the best place to start! you are tired, tired, tired, and have up and down back pain. Further history & physical are first; then bloodwork (cbc, cmp, tsh). If normal, you're not depressed, and fibromyalgia has been ruled out; then try the next level. Your meds may need to be changed and a sleep study or cardiac/gi eval may be in order. We are the puzzle-solvers! ...Read more
