My sleep issues persist (when Im not having issues with hypersomnia). Since I last posted on this thread, Ive ended up getting tollerence once again to the Doxyalmine Succinate so have had to increase my dose. I also had a trial of amitriptyline.. which turned out to be unsuccessful in helping me to sleep and may of sent me into a slow ME decline?. I also trialed Valium in the past which was unsuccessful at getting me to sleep. Temazepam still works for me at the same dose as when I last posted, which I take at times. What Im going to try next, I havent decided yet. I are wondering thou if the POTS was treated better, would that then help me to sleep? (at the moment things for POTS are being trialed). Also in consideration for sleep are cooling caps (thou I dont know where to get one from). The other day being entirely fed up with the situation, I completely boarded up (wood board I nailed over the window) one of my bedroom windows after having no luck with putting white cardboard over it. Light was still going a bit throu that. Thou other window has a block out blind on it, Im considering boarding that one up too as light gets around the edges of the blind and the slightest of light in the mornings will awake me. Ive recently discovered Ive still got some intollerance to light (Id thought I was over that a long time ago), and being in a completely dark place can actually get rid of some of my headaches.
