mkoven Posted November 13, 2010 Report Share Posted November 13, 2010 I am at my wits end. I haven't slept more than three hours a night for the past week. I have had some issues in the past and have apnea, but nothing like this. Some of it may be hormonal, as perimenopause progresses. but i'm going nuts. benadryl does nothing-- makes me more tired but doesn;t put me out. my doc gives me 5 5mg pills of sonata per month, but they are not working, and I now only have one pill left for the next three weeks.. he hasn't returned my recent messages about this. i'm sure that he's busy and that for a "normal" person, a week with minimal sleep is not considered a crisis. but for someone with my health issues, it feels like it is becoming one. I don't know if he is concerned I'm going to become addicted? so part of this is a rant. why can't my doctor call back or answer my emails? does he hope that if he blows me off it will fix itself?in the interim, i guess i just have to resign myself to not sleeping. i have a bottle of melatonin, but am nervous about trying it. It feels like it's getting harder to sleep the longer I don't sleep. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
