      I can not imagine your pain. You have a much more severe case than I do. Thank you for responding. I have tried Ativan and a couple of other drugs that made me feel horribly depressed the next day. Trazodone worked for awhile, but not much anymore. Thanks for letting me know there's something available as a last resort. I wish you all the best.

      That test is on the list, for sure. I didn't think I had it since I don't have the symptoms my sister has. But I understand how symptoms vary person to person. Thanks for the info.

      I think that's a good idea. I've tried it before, but not consistently. I'll get back on it.

      I'm looking into it. My insurance will not cover it. Plus, I'm not sure I'd sleep enough consecutive hours in a row for them to get a good reading.

      My family doc has checked the thyroid and says everything's normal. I went to a doctor who specializes in bioidentical hormones. He put me on armour thyroid. I took that fo two months, instead of levothyroxin, but had to quit because of a racing heart.

      Thank you. I will look into vitamins/minerals and the website you provided. Right now, I'm having a hard time eating anything. Just got some Ensure and will try that. I'm very grateful for your quick response. It helps to have some new ideas to explore.

      Please Help Chronic Severe Insomnia
      I understand why Michael Jackson wanted to be put to sleep. I have been to numerous doctors and natural health specialists and I haven't gotten any relief. I can't sleep. Can't eat. I've lost 20 to 30 pounds over the last six months. This has been going on since the fall of '09, but has gotten progressively worse since April '11. I'm at the end of my rope. I keep thinking that the insomnia is a symptom of something else, but I don't have a clue what that could be. There is autoimmune disease in my family. One sister and mother are celiac, another sister has a thyroid condition called hashimoto's disease (sp). Dad died of a brain tumor. I've tried trazodone, Ativan, bioidentical hormones. My hair falls out in bunches. I've got no energy. I'm a massage therapist, but I don't have the strength to work. I feel like a prisoner. My celiac sister says she's gotten help for several hard-to-diagnose conditions from this site. Please, does anyone have any ideas? This started with peri-menopause. Other than this, my life is great. No other stresses or psychological problems. Thank you in advance for any ideas.
