I have chronic insomnia, have had it since I was a small child. I can remember being less than 5 years old and not being able to sleep. Also, I have restless leg syndrome. And I don't go into deep stage 4 sleep. I am hyperaware while sleeping and even the slightest thing will wake me up. It causes pretty bad fatigue some days and I occasionally have to take meds for it.

See I have a nerve in my left arm which occasionally likes to give me shyte when I lie down, and if thats the case, I have to lie with my arm underneith me so my full body weight effectively crushes and stops the nerve from...well...i dont know how to explain the feeling..movement I get sometimes

Now I had hyperawareness during my sleep, only for about a month during the height of my anxiety it would have been July-August 2003...it was HORRIBLE..I was afraid I'd miss something...and once awake I could never go back to sleep for ages...honnest...if someone sneezed in the next room i'd be like..."what was that!! whats happening!! what am I missing!!"

Speaking of sleep studies, I'm willing to bet a zillion bucks that, if you have one, they recommend getting a CPAP machine.

Don't get me wrong, I think there are some people helped by them but I also think it's the latest racket.

Oddly enough, I just fell asleep with the TV on & had some really weird dreams thanks to the Jerry Springer show.

My brothers are both respiratory therapists. They've already said no on a CPap for me. They would love to stick one on me and take pictures of me sleeping. I guarantee it would be on the front of their Christmas cards next year. But no sleep apnea for me, I can say with 100% certainty that apnea is not my problem. But yes, CPap's are all the rage nowadays. I say we make designer ones for fashionistas and sell them. We'd make a killing.
