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!
