Hello, new here and need help! For a few years now I have been facing some issues related to sleep. First off, I find a sleeping pattern very hard to obtain. Even if I go to bed early, no matter how tired I am, I tend to wake up around 4:00am and I am unable to fall back to sleep until it is time to wake up. I have read this is a sign of insomnia, but not sure. Not sure of any cures or help on this one, as it does not affect me every single night - but once or twice per week.
Secondly, and more importantly, I can not remember a morning where I woke up not feeling sick. My mouth is completely dry, my throat hurts, and my stomach feels nausiated for a few hours. I am currently trying to stick with a diet, and I find it very hard to eat in the morning. I can not eat more than a banana without feeling sick. Also, lately I have noticed the top of my throat is actually starting to hurt. I can press on it with my tongue, and it feels sore and or bruised.
Does anyone have any information or suggestions? I plan on going in to see my family doctor soon, but would like to know more before I do.
It could be sleep apnia
my step dad had similar problems with occasionally waking up real early for no apparent reason..Always nauseas, sore throat, etc...
My mom actually watched him while he slept a few times and said he stopped breathing, and after she nudged him or said something, he started grasping vigorously for air...Thats what causes the sore throat. Anyway...See your doctor about it...
Its kindof a pain, but he sleeps with a breathing mask now, and he hasnt had a problem since
