Conditions with symptom: 'disturbed sleep'
Hi I am 57 and I have been told by my partner and grandchildren, that I snore very loudly. In fact so loud, that he can hear me from down stairs while watching TV. I also have a very disturbed sleep pattern, and wake several times at night. I am always feeling tired too. I don't drink or smoke, please could you advise me on what to do.
I am 60 years old. Male. I have just watched pixie snoring issue and I now know I have the same problem and have had it for at least 15 years. Other symptoms include excessive nasal fluid running down my throat and a cartilage growth in my right nostril. My suffers more than I do from disturbed sleep. What should I do?
I am 47 years old male. I had a heart attack in 2005 and another in 2009. Since these attacks i have had excessive sweating all over my body especially my torso. I have told my GP but do not seem to be taken seriously. Iam not working since the last attack and dread the thought of working with this condition. I wake up during the night with wet bedding and have tried to sleep in a cold room to no avail. So my nights sleep is constantly disturbed. I have 9 medications listed below: clopidogrel 75mg bisoprolol 2.5mg citalopram 20mg simvastatin 40mg asprin 75mg irbesartan 300mg ramipril 10mg glyceryl trinitrare spray (hardly used) I want to ask for a second opinion from my GP but do not know who to be referred to.

I havent slept with anyone since my last partner over 12 months ago, and not long ago I felt two little lumps whilst shaving. I had obviously disturbed what ever it was,and it felt like a fleshy lump,I asked a few friends and they all said it was ingrown hairs and they had suffered the same. Ever since though I have been paranoid,but due to the fact that nothing more had ever appeared or caused me any discomfort I hadn't been to a doctor. As I have now met someone else I feel I could sleep with I'm now paranoid that I'm not healthy down below, so I got the mirror out to check,and just above the entrance to the actual vagina,the skin seems to be a bit on the white side,as its been so long,and I have had no symptoms I can't decide if its still lookin healthy or not! HELP PLEASE!!
I once had a big lump, and that lump ended up being just this huge pimple.. I popped it and everything u see in a pimple came out!! Just imagin it 3 times more..
Hi, I had some dental treatment done a few months ago and I'd noticed my sleeping pattern had been disturbed , if I did sleep I'd have weirded dreams. My mind wasn't resting . This caused me to have headaches , I was feeing very tired and worn out. I'd approached my GP. He prescribed me some sleeping pils. I didn't take them. After about 3 months the problem was getting better, then unfortunately I again needed dental treatment . And again the same problem has occurred. Iv spoken to my dentist he's saying it's highly unlikely it's to do with the treatment. Im more than positive it is.I'm I right?? Can the anaesthetic have caused this to happen?
am 18 yrs old, whenever my penis is erecting it bends side ways to the left no pain though but am disturbed is this normal?
A lot of dick's have a slight bend when erect. If it does not cause you any pain or discomfort then it is nothing to worry about and does not affect your performance in any way. Rest assured you are perfectly normal and have nothing to worry about. You will find that your partner will maybe not even notice it anyway.
You should go see a doctor and see what they say.
I'm a 14 year old white-british female and i sleep a lot in he day. SOMETIMES at night i feel like i am tired but i am not at the same time, and sometimes cannot get to sleep until 5am-6am which is when i have to get up for school. In the daytime i feel sleepy, weather i got to sleep with ease the night before or not, and tend to sleep a lot. My social life is being ruined and i only have a few hours a day with my family. At first i thought it was narcolepsy but i reaserched and the symptoms are similar but not the same. Please could someone tell me whats wrong and how i can prevent it? All help is appreciated, thanks. :]
Hi millie, my 37 year old husband has Narcolepsy but we have learnt there are about 80 different types of sleep disorder. You should push your GP for a sleep test where you spend a night or two being monitored in hospital. Hope this helps
Hi Im Millie aswell , i have had Narcolepsy since i was about 6 or 7 i used to find it really hard to get to sleep but then in the day i was really tired and even falling asleep at school in the day, i dont know exactly how i first got it but the doctors seem to think it was from a virus that attacked my immune system , i also have Cataplexy which is when I laugh my brain thinks its going to sleep , it is definitly worth going to your doctor as i am now on medication that helps with my condition a lot , without taking a lot of it , i am also on medication that helps with sleeping , anyway i hope this might have helped you xx :-)
Although I'm happy to see the subject publicized, I can't help feeling uneasy with it classified as "embarrassing". As far as I can tell from the descriptions I read so far, there's a wide range of symptoms and some really only relate to being a woman in your late 30's - early 40's. If the symptoms take over your life, then it becomes a problem. I would say there are far more complaints about mood swings or PMS due to hormonal imbalance, aches and pains that make you fear you suffer from a terminal disease, highly disturbed sleep or oversleeping, and doctors who dismiss you with antidepressants, implying that it's all in your mind... Constipation, frequent urge to urinate and vaginal dryness, I never thought of them as too embarrassing, they're so common everyday things for men and women alike, excluding vaginal sensations, which are very common among women and usually nothing to do with STI's. What makes the whole thing embarrassing? Are there women reading this with symptoms that are usually perceived as such? Or feel embarrassed for a diagnosis of Perimenopause? I would like to know your opinions on this. Thank you.
You are absolutely spot on! After spending a year seeing an ENT, a Neurologist and a Rheumatologist I was finally diagnosed with perimenopause after my doctor dismissed me as too young at 42 despite telling him that my own mother had totally gone through the menopause by 46. I am astounded by the amount of women of my age being given antidepressants for anxiety when they are probably experiencing hormonal fluctuations. I am definately with you on this, definately not an embarrassing condition but a misunderstood one! Thanks
Is it normal for sleep walkers/talkers to be fatigued all the time?? My fiance is a chronic sleep walker and talker and has been his whole life... he constantly compains that he is tired all the time which I think may have somethign to do with his sleep walking and talking... any help please??
Hi Karen I'm no expert or Doctor but I did post on here a few months ago regarding my own night terrors and I like to pop back every now and then to remind myself - its not just me! I thought I could easily answer your question with a simple yes! Even though he's 'asleep' he's kind of not, as far as I know you're in a mid state of sleep (if you get what I mean) if you read up about it on Google you will find a lot of us night terror people are always tired, same as your fiancé it seems. I think he's in the first stages of sleep (I can't remember what it's called sorry!) I kind of came on here looking for a cure. I've been to the Drs too - she said she would look into it and call me (she never did) she said she had never even heard of this problem before. So I can't advise you on how to help him and again the Internet isn't much use I have found and believe you me I have trawled through website after website without finding anything if any help. Just wanted to say that yes he's probably fatigued due to the sleep walking. I hope this helps! Lauren x
Hiya when I'm a sleep I talk and sleep walk and I moan and scream and snore and when I walk up I don't no I done it I get told by my mum is they anything anyone can do about it because it annoys other people in the house.
I had snoring issues and had my self tested, I found the results frightening. essentially my blood oxygen level drops by 60% when I sleep. I am now on cpap but I am now terrified to go to sleep. and rarely manage more than 5 hours of broken sleep. I hate the idea of anyone seeing me like this. I am Darth Vader. I would really just like to know if there is another way. getting drunk is not an option.
I would rather sleep next to someone with a mask and the quiet humm of a CPAP machine then loud obnoxious snoring that wakes me up!
