yes, I have lots of trouble with restorative sleep and feel like it has now been nearing a solid two years of improper sleep. I think it has contributed to my decline too,

I noticed that sometimes I wake up and feel like my eyes are so dry that I wonder if I was sleeping with my eyes partly open.

I have on occasion when first falling asleep "seen" flashing like the spasms you mention. I am sorry to say that I am so tired that I try to just ignore them and within a few minutes I am asleep.

I am going to do a new sleep study in a couple of months...at Mayo and I hope to understand more I am having such a problem. I too do not snore but at a local generic hospital sleep center they did document the fact that I wake up for split seconds and then go back to sleep hundreds of times...they did not know how to interpret the findings. :ph34r: I am not sure what the eye movements mean but maybe they are related to the unconscious waking up we do?

I have a lot of hope that the Mayo sleep center will be able to address this issue.

take care, tearose
