This week, the Sleep Well blog has a special guest blogger, Dr. Wes Burgess. Many times members here on the Sleep Disorders community ask, "What Do My Dreams Mean ?"
Dr. Burgess says, "As a psychiatrist, one of the most common questions I am asked by my patients, friends, and colleagues is, "Wes, what do my dreams mean?" The simple answer is, "Probably not what you think!""
Have you ever had your dreams interpreted? Do you have a dream that you'd like to share? Post it below and tell us what you think it means!
National Sleep Awareness Week ends this Sunday with a loss of an hour to daylight savings time. Dr. Breus talks to us about the importance of sleep, and why many of us can't afford to lose an hour!
"It's National Sleep Awareness Week — and while I talk about sleep all the time, it's great to have a week focused on activity that just doesn't get the respect it deserves." Learn more by following the link and reading the full blog posting.
Is your sleep disrupted by the change back and forth to daylight savings time? How do you cope with it?
Hello and welcome! Here's a previous discussion on Sexsomnia from a while back. It has links to a blog on the topic, as well as our former Health Expert, Dr. Husain's thoughts on sexsomnia. Several members share their stories, too.
Unfortunately, I can't tell you what happened in your house because I wasn't there. Since you're a light sleeper and you say your "pants and everything were intact," it sounds like you have answered you own question.
If you're concerned, why not take it up with your doctor? Hopefully one of our other members may have an experience on the topic to share with you.
I am sorry, we no longer have a doctor on this community your question is far too complex to be answered here. I would suggest that you speak with your doctor or pharmacist and get an expert opinion from someone who knows your health history and can properly advise you.
Starting March 7th and ending on the 13th when most Americans lose an hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time, the National Sleep Foundation is sponsoring National Sleep Awareness Week (This is not a WebMD site and we cannot guarantee content).
To celebrate, I'm offering some interesting tools, slideshows, and articles to help you learn more and hopefully sleep better!
Dr. Breus asks Can Your Brain Learn to Help You Sleep Better ? "One of the most frustrating conditions that keeps people from sleeping well and through the night is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Most people with OSA aren't aware that they stop breathing multiple times during the night. This situation results in fragmented, poor sleep, as well as low blood oxygen levels. OSA has been associated with an increased risk for a myriad of health problems, including hypertension, heart disease, mood and memory problems."
