Boy...talk about a circadian rhythem out of whack. The last two nights I have went to bed at 10:30. Awoke at midnight..Breathed 02. 10 min later back to sleep. 1:30 am..awoke same same. awoke 3.00am same same awoke 4:30 am same same. awoke 6.30 am and finally gave up. We all know REM cycles every 90 minutes. I had been taking estazolam to sleep and it worked until around 3:30 am when one would finally break thru. But I guess my body has become accustomed to that and now the sleeping pill helps me fall to sleep quickly but I can't stay asleep. The 02 is working well. The cluster that awakens me is not bad and quickly goes away. Everytime I hit the REM part of sleep it triggers one. I am sure that others have experienced this. I am dragging today. Any suggestions???
