My sleep sucks. My doctor said that the dysautonomia is a large cause of it but regardless I can't sleep. One thing is that my patterns change all the time though; I may have a twisted circadian rhythm for a few months, then the next few months I'll sleep 10 minutes on/15 off, then I'll switch to hypoglycemia all night, then random adrenaline rushes etc.. Either way things just change at the drop of a hat so it's hard to tell what I need because it's always different. I can't take benzodiazepines because I took ativan 2 years ago and still haven't recovered from the hell that pill put me through, but whenever i ask my doctor about sleep he just tries to give me benzodiazepines despite me specifically telling him i can NOT take them. So I'm at a roadblock, here's the things I've tried that have no effect: Blue light therapy Meditation Earthing mat Doxepin Magnesium, fish oil Melatonin Valerian Prozac Things that help me slightly: NyQuill L-Theanine Prazosin ^^ These things calm me down slightly but not nearly enough to cross the barrier into sleep and even more so- to stay asleep. Also I'm very good about my blood sugar being correct. It seems like benzodiazepines are the most widely used drug for ME but thats not an option for me. I've been very hesitant to try drugs because of how sensitive I am and how quickly my body becomes reliant but at this point I may have no choice. Is there anything that isnt, like, and anti-psychotic that is pretty well received across the board? I feel like if I can get some regular sleep I may have a fighting chance at some sort of recovery.
