Sleep Disorders And Such

Well, it's always nice to find answers to one's physical problems. Gasping for air, restless sleep and fatigue bothers me from time to time. Come to find out I, indeed, might be suffering from sleep apnea. There's help at the New York Physical Therapy Office in midtown Manhattan for all my New York readers (one day I will get the pleasure of vacationing the quieter places of New York). Nonetheless, there's still help for me and you by reading through the site at Spine and Sports which will include information on any other ailment you might have. Remember the knowing is a start to feeling better. They even have answers to your headache problems and this they promise:"Our team of trained healthcare professionals, will use a multidisciplinary approach to treating your condition with the utmost care and attention."

New York would be a long way for you to come and get treatment, yes?

I love your new background. The mountains, the water, the bridge to quiet places... very serene.

Thanks, LL, I tried. Boy, this techy business hurts my brain. And, yes, I know New York is a little out of my way, but I sure would like to get to the East Coast one day. Maybe Maine. Is that on the East Coast???? Or Chesapeak Bay.

Restless leg syndrome often can be at least partly prevented by developing healthy sleep habits.

Massage the calf and legs regularly. Stretch your legs at the beginning and end of each day. Maintain a regular sleep schedule since fatigue may worsen symptoms. Exercise. Some people with restless leg syndrome find that running in place for a short period of time alleviates the symptoms of restless leg syndrome. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and tobacco.

Some more tips from ElsieD

Wrapping ace bandages around my legs just above & below my knees helps to alleviate their inner urge to move.

One woman said she massaged her legs with some kind of cream (wish I could remember what it was) then slipped stretchy leg/ankle? Wraps over them, & this gave her a fairly good nights sleep.

Good Night Sleep

Lack of sleep can result in stress, lack of concentration, moodiness, memory loss, lower motivation and fatigue. It is important to get a good night sleep otherwise it may lead to different sleep disorders. More than eighty percent of people suffering from depression are suffering with sleep problems.

At present, one of the most common problems is Sleep deprivation. In fact the Better Sleep Council surveyed a thousand adult respondents and discovered that more than 30% of them confessed to not getting enough sleep each night.

Here are 101 ways to get good night sleep for those who experience difficulty in getting sleep.

I thought I had a sleep disorder, I kept waking up during the night, at first I thought it was down to my mattress but when I bought a new one and it didn't change I started to worry. Fortunately I found out that it was down to the amount of cheese I was eating at night, it was playing havoc with my bowels.
