      What up Shelly,

      I got going more than usual at the beginning there, but at the same time, we need to do all we can to get some good sleep.

      Take care,

    I have found meditation works for me: Deep Relaxation through Guided Imagery and Relaxation Music. I still get up a couple of times a night but my sleep is deep and I don’t wake up with a headache. Even during a flare…

      Yo Yo Laurie,

      I haven’t done it too much, but my wife bought some guided meditation music on Amazon and we’ve listened to it several times before falling asleep. I usually am conked out before it over…so seems to work great. Glad you’re finding some good sleep!!

    I just tried something new & it helps! I use “blinders” to black everything out. I recognized the fact that any kind of light, either from street lights coming through the blinds, LED lights from cell phone or any kind of light keeps me wide awake. The covering over my eyes absolutely helps!

      Hey Jen,

      Great first step, and this makes me so happy to read someone doing something instead of just dealing with it. When people suspect OSA for themselves or others and actually do something about it, it truly can be the beginning of a new life. I wish you both well no matter how things turn out.

      Best to you guys,

    You are an amazing guy Adam and deserve a heap of praise for all your hard work. My solution for getting a good nights sleep is, two Co-Codamol and a hot water bottle, mind you it doesn’t always work.

      Thanks so much Tony. Much appreciated, and way cool to see another one of the original users of the site from the olden days here once again!
      Glad you’re getting some good Z’s, and do me a favor and try to help out someone you know who is unknowingly suffering from OSA. Unfortunately we all know them, but there is for sure life after getting past it.

      Take care,

    Have pre-empted you Adam and sent a link via Facebook to a friend who I know suffers from sleep deprivation. If I can help someone via you it costs me nothing and makes us all a little happier, that can’t be a bad thing can it.

    Have a great day Adam in that beautiful Californian sunshine.

    a great collection of tips, think I will try the no caffeine and some yoga. Beeing a Brit I love my Tea so I really need to find something to replace the caffeine stuff. Had peppermint many times but it gets boring!
