Thanks for info.

8 hours ago · Tired of waking up at 2am.. in Sleep Health

.5 mggDo you excercise? Vigorous exercise, during the day, might help. I had sleep problem for 3 years, then started Temazepam which worked great, but problem is need to increase dosage to get same result. Started at 7.5 mg. Then, opening a 15mg capsule, dumped out a bit, so I was taking approx. 10-13mg. When got accustomed to that had to use whole 15mg capsule. Now that is no longer adequate. So, I have used the Term for 3 years. Now pain doctor wants me off the Temazepam, so I will start tapering off and try combination of benadryl and THC (from marijuana or hemp). Try this:when you wake up at 2am take good hot shower, dry off quickly so you don't get chilled, then get into bed with blankets on. For me, after I do the quick dry [skin still has some water on it] I get into thick cotton terry robe. Then I get into bed. Sometimes this puts me right back to sleep. Good luck

Everyone is different. Never heard of anyone/or directions to "take only when needed". I take CBD oil (from marijuana, not hemp) every day. So far zero benefit for my peripheral neuropathy. Most CBD for sale is derived from hemp, which is cheaper than from marijuana

Everyone of us has a different physiological-chemical system. That makes it very difficult to determine what is best for us. Despite 30 years of therapy and medication I am still depressed and suicidal.For example: For drugs BIgPharma clinical studies to get FDA approval are based upon around 1,200 patients. It is impossible for those results to apply to everyone. E.g. I took one tablet of Cymbalta for idiopathic peripheral neuropathy-PN- and ended up in hospital for 2 days. But I have read (don't recall which site) someone who wrote that Cymbalta like a "miracle drug" for her PN. Enter this into google: "Just For Today PRAYER FOR TODAY". Created by AA but useful for all of us

Thu, Jan 10 5:11am · CBD oil for Neuropathy in Neuropathy

I have used tincture (1000mg/oz) oral for neuropathy: useless. This was from hemp oil. I'm looking for CBD from marijuana. Also,I've read les effective for people with long-standing neuropathy, which I have 30 yrs.BBesides, we are dealing with a comply unregulated product. So how do we know what's in the bottle. Esy for sellers to sell diluted product or somethingnelse

thanks. I have been using CBD tincture (oral) 100 % CBD: useless. This may be because I have had it for 30 years. I read somewhere that it's more effective in early stages, not later like mine

Tue, Jan 8 9:33pm · Swelling and pain in my left ankle and lower leg - venous insufficiency? in Heart & Blood Health

I am terribly sorry that this has happened to you. There are several conditions that can cause edema in your legs. I have had swelling in my left foot and calf for several years. I use compression stockings every day. Do you have a primary care physician? If so, that is the best place to start. Also, regardless of what the cardiologist tells you I suggest you get opinions from two additional cardiologists and possibly a vein specialist. It is essential to get a proper diagnosis of what your problem is and it sounds like you don't have one yet. There are vein specialists who have developed procedures that deal with venous insufficiency ( Endovenous Radio Frequency Ablation, Mechano Chemical Ablation and Venoseal Closure System) but we don't know if any of these should be used on you). I have no direct experience with these procedures. They are done on an outpatient basis. I have read that they are about 70percent effective for venous insufficiency. I'm in the process of visiting cardiologists to get other options for myself. Since the compression stockings are too tight you might consider wraps that you can adjust that give you a compression level that you can tolerate. They are similar to an Ace bandage, but thinner. They have velcro at the ends to hold the wrap in place, no metal clips like traditional Ace bandages. I don't know what they are called. I got mine from a podiatrist. Good luck to you and and I hope you can get a proper diagnosis and treatment. Keep me posted
