Oh dear i know how you feel i have survived on two hours sleep during the early afternoon only now for six months feel terrible hope you get some sleep soon


have you been to your Gps and explained your inability to sleep , even if it caused by the noise from your present flat and the stress of moving shortly and the worry your GP can prescribe meds that are not pain killers to help with sleep I get 7 hours every night .. I know its med induced sleep as if I don't take them I don't sleep but any sleep is better than none and with trial and error I have the perfect combination , it took a while to find out what I could take and what works but the end result is Definately worth it. Everything seems so much more manageable after sleep

Good luck

Hi Tinkerbell, Have you ever tried a Ten's machine, I have used one of these many time's over the years,Sometimes it helps if it is your back and hips that are hurting .I have used mine so much I have pulled the wires out with sleeping with it on,

it is a strange sensation but if you can tolerate it you may get some ease.(That remind's me Need to buy a new one .)


For short term relief try sominex, its an over the counter tablet for insomnia, but don't take if you are taking any anticonvulsive meds.


Try 2 magnesium tablets at 7pm every night but it takes about a week to work. Also honey is good for sleep as well. Good luck its so hard on the body with no sleep.

I hate to disagree with that dr but my consultant told me when sleep goes out the window, throw the clock out after it!

if you need to sleep, sleep.

once you do get your sleep back then try staying up a bit later , but it will work back round to night times.

hugs (( :) ))
