    Hi Ima - I replied to your post, like this one, but in a different thread/forum yesterday... I cannot find it now, this place is huge [its great tho]

    Anyhow, I want you to know someone read it... wherever it is.

    And, that I don't sleep much either. And, lately, sleep or no sleep, I am terribly sleepy most of the time, nodding off for 10 mins, never sleeping more than 2 or 3 hours...

    I made a friend of you too - in Profile. I hope thats ok. I just relate to your troubles.

    are you a chronic Pain type too?

    Forgive me hon, I'm old and forgetful. Have you said whether or not you have seen a doctor about this? If you haven't could you? I know that if you don't have insurance you may be putting off going. But I'd hope you would go. I hate for anyone to always be feeling bad. Lack of sleep can cause a lot of things, depression is one of them when you feel so bad all the time.

    So can you tell me have you seen a doctor? I surely hope you will if you haven't yet.
    My neck stays so sore from dropping off to sleep sitting up. I went from Wednesday night in bed until Sunday before I went back to bed. I spent all that time in a recliner. nodding off and on.

    And here I was thinking my sleeping had finally improved. Yeah but not for any good reasons tho.

    Good luck with yours

    Sorry I know that happens sometimes. There are times I may go to bed 3xa week myself. I don't always sleep tho. I hope things get better for you. Other days I can sit in recliner for days and nod off. I just found out why yesterday that I hve been doing it. Awesome kidney infection plus terrible allergies. My eyes were almost as gumy sticky as when I had pink eyes as a kid. not nice at all.

    hi Joy. Is this sleep problem more severe lately, or has it been that way all year? for years?

    Anyway, I am finding that some of my weakness and "awesome terrible fatigue" lately might have something to do with BMs [bowel movements] - the cold wet weather got me a bit depressed, I was eating more to cope and perhaps just out of boredom, and that means having more BMs... i should have remembered this from before... BMs cause weakness and having 3 or 4 in a day left me incapacitated.

    I am going back to my starvation diet I have followed for 10 years... they say it leads to long life!! [not that I want that...]

    There are other factors too, but I am just saying bowel habits might play a role

    no it is not new but it did get worse with 2 blood clots in my lungs. Low oxygen. I use it at night, when I do make it to bed that is. In daytime I leave it as it is a big machine and all. I also have 2 other infections so that made it worse. But always had sleep problems of some sort. Eith way to much or days without it. always something it seems. It could be worse and now that I am retired, it doesn't matter so much to me when I do sleep.
