Sweet crazy dreams

Saturday, September 03, 2011

I have trouble with getting good sleep and very frequently wake up with headaches for no apparent reason. I was diagnosed with sleep apnea a few years ago and got one of those CPAP machines with the crazy mask to sleep with. Well, did that for a while and it was all good but I guess I got tired of it and thought it solved the problems I had back then. So it's been collecting dust. For a long while now I've been getting headaches 2 or 3 times a week that start when I wake up and just don't quit all day long. Thought it was certain food, certain drink, maybe I sleep crooked or something, this, that and the other and couldn't find a common denominator. Well, last night I dusted off my CPAP machine and slept well with it with no headache in the morning. Maybe this is the solution to my headaches??? It could be that I just don't breathe enough when I sleep and get headaches from lack of oxygen??? It's worth a look. Just not sure how to deal with all the crazy vivid dreams that came with it. Dreams are a good sign...like I'm getting all that good REM sleep and all that. I don't mind the dreams but they are more interesting than my real life and I hate it when I have to wake up!

    Yea I guess I get some fairly crazy dreams on my cpap too. I hadn't thought of it. Usually I can't remember what they are about. And they are different from the dreams I used to have that basically were telling me to get up and take care of restroom business ...

    Don't I wish I could live in some of my dreams too!! You may want to go for a sleep study. They have them all over and you could learn a lot about what is causing your problems. I wish you luck!!
