I used to always play music to get to sleep - until I was 19 or so, but my husband got tired of it and asked me to try to stop. It took a little while to get used to it, but I'm fine without any noise now.

Sometimes I have to unplug the radio in my room because I can hear the soft buzz of the electricity, I think.

NO noise is best. I can tolerate the sound of the fan, or of one of my kids breathing beside me.

Definitely NO radio or television on for a deep sleep. I find myself "listening" to every word, and unable to be just lulled by the rythm.

Just my quirk.

I sleep with a fan, have since I was a child and cannot sleep without one. I am also very particular about the fan.. cant have one that does not sound a certain way. I am a very very light sleeper, any variation of noises and I am wide awake in a second. The radio or TV drives me batty. Any change in noises, such as a talk show with people clapping and I bolt upright in bed. Once you get used a fan, theres nothing else like it. Even have my husband liking the sound. In fact I am sure that is what contributed to the failure of my first marriage, he hated my fan and would not allow it <_< so I got to listen to him snore and snuffle all night, moved out of the bedroom so I could have my fan, wasnt long after we seperated. Of course there were other issues... lol.

I am kind of in between.......

I need the tv on to go to sleep but the sound is turns down and I have the closed captioning on..... But for noise, I have to fall asleep with my humidifier on.... it has a waterfall sound and is quite rhythmic and calming.....

I don't have any sleep problems, but do enjoy having the fan on when I fall asleep. I usually wake up early (6-7 AM) and fall asleep like clockwork at 10:30. Usually the entire family is watching TV (the olympics, lately), and I have my head back on the pillow and my eyes get heavy. During school I don't fall asleep to the TV, but the fan would still be nice, I guess.

About the noisemaker, my mom had one of those, and I used to borrow it sometimes since I went to bed before she did and put it on summer night. I didn't like the stream or rain cause those made me want to use the bathroom....lol :D

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
