hi it is 4am and i have not gotten to sleep. usually i take a nap in the am when my husband leaves for work at 5;15. even then i sleep only a few hours. yours sounds much worse if you are awake over 24 hrs!!!!
i had a brain tumor removed 11/20......since then i have had insomnia. i was on steroids, and they told me as soon as i stopped them, i would sleep. wrong. now i am going thru my list of meds to determine if any of them are causing the sleeplessness.
my neurologist will not give me a sleeping pill....he just says tylenol for nights!! my daughter who is a pharmacist said they gave me zanex in the icu, so i should try that. i am not sure what to do. i have tried all the herbal solutions, as well as teas....just like you probably have. i ordered a sleeping aid that was on dr.oz's but it has not come yet....joyce/pghView Thread
