Re: Sleepy in Chicago and about to cry

Some times eating a carb like a slice of toast right before I go to bed helps me sleep. And it's all natural.

I am having low back pain, too. I don't know if it's because I'm sitting around more than I used to or if it's part of the post-op. I'll ask my doc when I see him on Wed.

Wow! Glad to know I am not alone! Insomnia has been my biggest demon since my surgery! I have tried everything, except prescription pills - had a friend that was killed in a car accident because she was on ambien and "sleep driving" so I am too scared to try!

I have not had any side affects like sleeping walking, but I put my car keys in my daugthers room so if I did, she would have the keys. I am sorry about your friend.

Re: Sleepy in Chicago and about to cry

Wow. I too am relieved that I am not alone in the insomnia department. (Although I am sorry you are all going through it.). Not being able to sleep is driving me crazy, and making me very irritable. I think I'll try the melatonin and see if that helps. What is also frustrating is that I have 5 dogs that I love, but it seems like whenever I do fall asleep during the day, they find a way to wake me up.

Still no progress with sleeping without taking NyQuil. Had bloodwork done to see about my hormone levels and it was fine. My thyroid levels were overactive so they switched my medicine. Hoping that will be the trick but it's been a week with new pills and no change yet. I bought a higher does of melatonin today to try 5mg. Hope the rest of you are no longer sleep deprived!!!!!!!!

Re: Sleepy in Chicago and about to cry

I was reading responses to (sleepy in Chicago) when I came across yours. I connected wth you cause you said you lost someone close to you 2 weeks b4 ur surgery that walked out. My boyfriend of 5 years treated me like dirt 3 days b4 my surgery. So I went thru the surgery w/o his support. So I to feel a loss too. But God does'nt give us more then we can't handle. I know time will heal all wounds. My Hysterectomy was on 2/17/2012. We stopped speaking on valentines day. I'm much more involved in my healing though, then a bone-headed ex. As for your sleep, I to have experienced many sleepless nights. I'm on ambien, which despite much of the negative side effects people report. It works fine for me. I tried the melatonin, & it made me feel wierd. Tried the chamomile, it did nothing. But once I heal some I wil get to the bottom of this by seeing a sleep specialist. Hope this helps you in knowing your not alone. God bless you

I totally relate! The love of my life pretty much abandoned me when I took ill. It hurts but it has been wonderful to be able to focus on my own healing. If they can't be their when were struggling, they shouldn't be there for the good times either. I had wicked insomnia too and eventually turned to melatonin. This totally worked, even better than eating a carb before going to sleep. My body clock seems reset and I am able to sleep a full night now. You may want to give it a try. It's all natural from what I understand.
