Something in the ink is magnetic and if it is under the MRI it will pull or boil their skin off!
If you sleep 3 to 4 hours or through a cycle they consider it a "good" test. My sleep doc says they are close to having a "Wi-Fi" version that you do at home, but the insurance industry is causing a problem with it somehow. You will still have the electrodes all over you, but no cables. The electrodes transmit to a router on night stand which sends it to sleep technician.
I'm on a 1 hour minimum electronic black out before bed. I have every possible crack in my room blocked from light. I use my air purifier for white noise.
Gabapentin is what they gave me to suppress REM sleep. At 900 mg I did not have a memorable dream for 6 months.
I have had 2 nights of either adrenaline or cortisol streaming through my body and have slept a total of about 5 hours the past 2 nights. I just hope I am not having one of those nights during the sleep study....it will be another waste of money like the first one. Since I only slept a total of 2.5 hours (not all at once) I am guessing the study was totally useless...
If you want to try darkness therapy, the way it works is that you need to be blocking out blue light for more like three hours before bed. That includes lighting, not just electronics. Yellow bulbs and orange filters are one way of doing it, if you don't want to try/can't afford tinted glasses.
Are there special kinds of tinted glasses for this?
I imagine that candles are okay...?
This website sells light bulbs that block the blue spectrum, along with special glasses that block blue light.
I'm sure you've probably tried everything so far, but one remedy I recently learned about is hypothalamus glandular. Someone on the MTHFRDiscussions Yahoo group said it really helps with her sleep.
Phenibut helps me, but it isn't something to take regularly due to tolerance.
Tattoo inks are loaded with heavy metals...and other crap.
"Heavy metals used for colors include mercury (red); lead (yellow, green, white); cadmium (red, orange, yellow); nickel (black); zinc (yellow, white); chromium (green); cobalt (blue); aluminium (green, violet);titanium (white); copper (blue, green); iron (brown, red, black); and barium (white). Metal oxides used include ferrocyanide and ferricyanide (yellow, red, green, blue). Organic chemicals used include azo-chemicals (orange, brown, yellow, green, violet) and naptha-derived chemicals (red). Carbon (soot or ash) is also used for black. Other compounds used as pigments include antimony, arsenic, beryllium,calcium, lithium, selenium, and sulphur."
I wonder what the health consequences will be in the coming generations due to this insane fad/craze of the last 10 years...?
I did a preliminary neurofeedback treatment (the dr I go to does this before an EEG, which she then uses to determine what is best to target in when you start the actual treatment.
After the prelim I got horrible nausea and a terrible headache. And ever since that day, my insomnia has been so much worse than it had been prior. No matter what I do, the earliest I can fall asleep is 2am, but most days it is 4 or later. And it is unrefreshing sleep. I am going on 7 years of insomnia but this past year has been worse than the other 6 combined. I don't respond to meds or supplements...or any kind of sleep hygiene. The EEG of course revealed tht I need help most in the area of sleep, but I am terrified to try the treatment, even though they say it works differently that the prelim did.
Has anyone tried anything like the Fisher-Wallace device?Or the Alpha-Stim?
