I think that if you are too anxious, you still won't be able to fall asleep, even with sleeping meds. If I take a sleeping pill and am really anxious about something, I can still stay up freaking out about it. You need to calm yourself down when you take a sleeping pill. Try reading a book or something like that.

I agree, If I take a Xanax and I'm extremely anxious, then there s no way I can sleep.

Yeah i figured the sleep pills would lower anxiety and put u to sleep since it slows down ur brain .. my GP told me he recommends me to get on the lexapro so does my neuro and so does my physic ... I had a MRI came back normal my GP gave me a RX for restrol teazapam think I spelled that wrong lol will it helped me sleep but its a benzo so i know i cant use that all the time or else the problem gets worse ... There really no easy fix only way is by getting natural sleep .... Happy turkey day to u guys !!

That's good that the MRI came back normal and that you found something you can use occasionally. I hope you are a lot less worried about that disorder now. :) I hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Try to relax before bed and I'm sure it will help at least a little bit!

Rceler, I know this thread's old but if you happen to still be lurking about here, did your sleeping problems get better? I've been suffering from insomnia for two months now. I'm also worried about SFI because I keep twitching, having insane hallucinations and panic attacks out of nowhere. My body feels like it's constantly in overdrive, and the most sleep I can get is 3 hours max. It's driving me crazy.

In dreams there are things you can do called reality checks they are


    Breathe - Can you hold your nose and mouth shut and breathe?
    Jump - When you jump, do you float back down?
    Read - Can you read a sentence twice without it changing?
    Look - Is your vision clearer or blurrier than normal?
    Hand - Can you push hand through a solid surface?
    Time - Can you read a clock face or digital watch?
    Fly - Can you will yourself to fly or hover above the ground?
    Palms - Do the palms of your hands look normal close-up?
    Mirrors - Does your reflection look normal in the mirror?
    Math - Can you add up two numbers for a correct answer?

In dreams, alot of these actions will defy real world physics. You can also do them awake if you really can't tell.
