sleep

Hello. About a month ago I posted a message about having
problems trying to sleep. I was getting this surge (kind a
feels like electricity) It feels like it starts at the top
and comes down my body. I can actually hear it when it passes by my ears. YOu thought it could be cardiac dysonomia or something like that. I was already in the process of being tested. They ran blood test, eeg, mri, holter monitor, and adrynaline urine test. Nothing showed up. One more question. I have to take benadryl just so i can sleep and it seems to lessen the effect of this surge. It doesn't stop it. I check my blood pressure when I am having them and it doesn't seem to effect it. I am 240 mg of covera hs (verapa mill) any ideas? thanks

Dear Lewis,

You are going to have to put more effort into this than you apparently have if you really want to understand this and get rid of it.

I said that this was dysautonomia (nothing cardiac to it). If you had put even the least effort into what I suggested, you would not be asking these questions and you would already know that all the tests will come out negative.

The only solution to it is the regular practice of skilled relaxation at least twice a day for 20 minutes. Use the references I gave you before and THEN, if you still have questions, write again.

You are letting your doc spend thousands of dollars on tests when s/he alreadyknows that they will all be negative. THEN s/he will prescribe some tranquilizers or send you to a psychiatrist.

LEARNING what you need to know is a LOT less effort than you are going to have to expend to DO what you need to do. However, there is no other way out for you (yet known).

Walt
