IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 3 YEARS. I NEVER HAD HEADACHES BEFORE, BUT NOW I HAVE NECK/HEADACHES SO BAD THEY WAKE ME UP. I HAVE TO TAKE 2 BC POWDERS & SIT UP AWHILE BEFORE I TRY SLEEPING AGAIN. THE BC POWDERS WORK, BUT THE STRESS, MUSCLE SPASMS RETURN. ALSO, THE PANIC ATTACKS ARE BACK. MY 1ST MRI WAS CLEAR. I NEED TO SCHEDULE ONE THIS YEAR BUT I AM AFRAID. CLAUSTROPHOBIC--BAD & SCARED THEY WILL TELL ME I HAVE A REOCCURANCE. I NOW TAKE AMBIEN CR. BUT SLEEP & REST ARE ILLUSIVE. BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU WITH THIS PROBLEM.View Thread
P.S. NEW PRODUCT--A BEVERAGE--CALL NEURO SLEEP, HELPS. IT WAS SOLD IN THE HOSPITAL IN L.A. & I ORDERED A CASE FROM AMAZON.COM. IT IS ORANGE FLAVORED & PLEASANT TO DRINK. JUST TOO EXPENSIVE TO DRINK EVERY NIGHT ( FOR ME). LIKE $36.00 FOR A CASE OF 12?View Thread
IN SEPT. 2011 I HAD A CANCEROUS ELST BRAIN TUMOR REMOVED. I WAS BLESSED ( DESPITE HAVING A CFS LEAK, 2ND SURGERY TO INSTALL AN LP SHUNT & MENINGITIS, & BEING IN LOS ANGELOS, CA FOR A WHOLE MONTH & 5 DAYS!). I LOST THE HEARING IN MY LEFT EAR, MY BALANCE NERVE ON THAT SIDE & MY JUGULAR VEIN. BUT ALL IN ALL I AM GREAT! EXCEPT FOR DIZZINESS STILL & BLASTED INSOMNIA! I TOO HAVE FIBROMYALGIA & A VERY "UPSIDE DOWN" LIFE. IT IS 7 :30 A.M. NOW--I GOT UP YESTER DAY AT 5 P.M. & HAVEN'T BEEN TO BED. I AM TIRED, I HURT...I AM SICK AT MY STOMACH, HAVE A HEADACHE-------AND CAN'T SLEEP. I AM GOING BACK TO THE DR. SOON. I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS. SLEEPING PILLS DO NOT WORK WISHING YOU LUCK! THIS IS AWFUL.View Thread
