    Hubs is having problems sleeping. Its been going on for awhile now. He says he feels miserable all over when he lays down. Hes not in pain, he just feels miserable. I had this many years ago and it just finally went away. It feels like your skin is crawling or something, hard to explain how it feels. Also whenever he does doze off he jerks alot. Any ideas?

    He needs to talk to his doc about restless leg syndrome, could be related. Sleep issues are a BIG deal, pay attention. My Dad died from a heart condition triggered by sleep apnea.

    Sorry about your Dad Pam :cry:

    Hubs doesn't have the symptoms of sleep apnea.
    RLS might be a possibility.

    Hmmm. I'd have him make a doc appointment. Is he taking any new meds, either over the counter, prescription, or herbal? They didn't leave something in during his colonoscopy did they (only kidding). Go to WebMD and put in the symptoms and see if anything comes up. I'd still have him see the doc, though.

    So sorry to hear your DH is having sleep troubles.I jerk and jump a lot myself, only the past few years since I am older now. Maybe its restless leg symdrome, I also had and still have problems with sleeping. I had been on some nasty pain meds, the Dr. has taken me off about 1 month ago, had a real bad 8 days of withdrawls, but still have some trouble with sleeping. If its nothing like above, maybe he should go to a sleep study lab and get checked out. Its not good if your body cannot get the rest it needs. Sleep helps us repair our bodies and minds. Lace

    Marsye, take him to the dr tomorrow. It may turn out to be nothing, but you never can tell. Especially since he had surgery recently. I think it's more scary not knowing what's wrong.

    I had RLS as a reaction to a medication while I was pregnant. I didn't want to take it, but I was so sick that I needed it to help me hold a little food down. The symptoms are horrible and you just don't want to lay down at all. I found that not even a recliner helped. An appointment with his physician is needed.

    Thanks for the replies.
    This was going on long before his surgery so its not the medicine. Hes just very restless at night when he goes to bed. Hes not sick or anything and is recovering well from surgery.

    First thing the doc will tell him no matter what is no more caffeine :shock: Coffee, pop , chocolate, tea it all adds up .

    My son was having issues and they told him to eat toast before bed also. He had to do the sleep study for apnea, but he didn't have it .

    Also is he doing enough to tire himself out during the day, I know it sounds silly but if I don't move a lot I have a hard time sleeping .

    I read the RLS and sleep apnea symptoms to him and he said he doesn't have those. Maybe I just need to whack him with a rubber hammer every night at bedtime. :lol:

    That's good to hear. Dr may have some simple suggestions to help. It's worth a try.

    I have had the sleep problem for about 2 yrs. now. I can be very tired and sleepy and go to bed and I get so restless I have to get up I have gone with out sleep for 2 days and finally have to take a nerve pill to relax myself. Have talked with the Dr. about it she says as long as I can take the nerve pill and sleep it is ok. I have tried Lunesta and that is not good for me> I have a hang over. He may not be able to relax. Just a thought.

    I have those same feelings sometimes. I call it the heebie jeebies. I've been taking Trazadone and Tylenol PM before bed with a small glass of milk and it seems to help me. Definitely agree that he should visit his doctor.

    A doctors visit is calling... maybe overly tired as well can cause you to not be able to rest. ??
