hi, I'm Donna from Winterville,ga. I really don't know what to tell you except that I am on Medicaid and every single month there are certain prescriptions there are narcotics and I cannot call them in earlier they won't let me. So..I have to call the pharmacist and the pharcist has to fax my doctor who is slower than a snail, and that dummy dr. has to Medicaid and tell them that I have to have this medicine..Once that's done I'm good for a month, but my doctor sometimes takes five or six days..I hardly sleep ever. I have Lupus,Fibromyalgia,Restless leg and Body Syndrome, sleep apnea,and a lot more..I'm in pain all the time and I can't sleep sometimes I think I'm just gonna go psycho...so I can sure understand where your coming from..Godbless U and URS..Donna in GeorgiaView Thread
Hi Jonathan,,I am a NONE SLEEPER TOO..If fact I very rarely get good sleep..this has gone on with me for yrs and yrs and yrs..I've tried about everything there is to try unless I go to a specialist. I just went four days and nights without sleep..finally got some sleep the last two nights but only because I am on disability and can sleep in the day also if I need to. I have fibromyalgia, Lupus, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, and some other illness's that contribute to why I can't sleep. I am just desperate to get some help. Have you had any luck with getting sleep. I think if you also have chronic insomnia maybe it would be a good idea if we became friends on here..what do you think..? Godbless ^O^ Donna P.S. my boyfriends name is John so I like your name View Thread

Fibromyalgia, Lupus, TMJ, Restless leg and body syndrome,Chronic insomnia, sleep apnea, and recently I went from a off and on lower back pain to hurting myself lifting huge rocks to a herniated disk and I found out I have arthritis in my back. Now I am going to a Pain Clinic management. My regular M.D. hasn't been to concerned about my never sleeping. I live with my boyfriend and he tells me I don't sleep. I haven't slept in four days and nights until last night I finally went to sleep about four a.m. and woke up at eleven a.m. this morning..I will probably not sleep again for another four are five days. I live in such pain from all my problems but the worst thing I've ever dealt with is the Chronic yr after yr. after yr. NO SLEEP.. I desperately need to start getting some regular sleep..CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME...View Thread
