Hello everyone -if you've read my desperate posts- I've been spiraling down with major neuro MS/type plus a whole lot more /chronic lyme symptoms. I deperately need to get sleeping to stop the spiral the disease progression. I'ts been 4months w/o sleep- and i't has gotten worse from a few hours on trazadone some times more (broken)if I was lucky to pretty much nothing. Traz stopped working and it leaves a horrible taste in my mouth all day/burning esophagus. I also have major anxiety from what's going on, nerve irritation in my neck /brain that is hard to describe (makes me stop breathing it's so bad), and jerking/twitching....etc. Can't come down at night and I think brain inflammation if that makes sense is keeping me from sleeping. Neuro who says it's not MS prescribed gaba pentin-I'm at one week on 300 mg/night and so far it is helping with the nerve agitation in my neck/brain-but i think it's made my sleep even worse/non existent but hard to tell since it was non existent before. I'm supposed to go 2/day this week. I've added trazadone usually at 1:30 am since not sleepin gand can sometimes get an hour or 2/sometimes none. Lyme message boards recommend klonopin for sleep, anxiety , jerking etc- though not sure it would help with nerve issue-but I'd take sleep right now over that. Neuro did not want to prescribe that saying it could be abused/addictive? Any thoughts /suggestions?
