Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
I'm sorry to hear this
Do you take any other medication?
Well I'm taking antihismine for allergies and allupurinol for gout.
Can you see my replies?
Yes I was able to see your reply as you asked me what medicine I am currently taking.
Okay, have you had a sleep study?
No, never had one done as many people didn't think I need to do it.
Do you have anxiety?
I used to but I only have anxiety mostly because not knowing if I can go to sleep or not.
Okay, your anxiety is likely preventing you from sleeping
I would ask your doctor to start an anti- anxiety drug
If that does not help then you may get a sleep study
I used to take celexa. I generaly don't feel anxious during the day.
I excercise plenty and try not to watch much tv or on the computer. I don't know if the weather has any factor?
It has been pretty hot summer as I live in Florida.
The weather may be a factor, but anxiety is likely a factor as well
I see. There are times I am fine but there are times, for some reason just not do well.
I mean as far as it goes for sleep.
I see, then it is most likely anxiety
Hmm interesting since it is not like I have stress.
Some people think it's because I have been taking ambien but I really don't take it that often and never exceed 5 mg.
Although I do have allergies so wonder if that would trigger anxiety?
Allergies usually don't trigger anxiety, and this is not likely from ambien
okay so it is anxiety of some form. Well I guess that's all you can do for me at this point. :)
I am happy I could help
I'll check with my doctor and see what he says.
I think that is a good idea
Okay thank you for your help.
You're quite welcome

Actually I do have another question which I had forgotten. I don't know if it has to do with sleep. It may seem nothing as I had read it is nothing.
But I seem have trouble when I have an infection. I am sure it is not an infection.
During sex, I had noticed I had some light blood in semen? It is not that dark, more of pink hue.
This is not related to the sleep topic, unfortunately, I can only answer questions on that topic in this question, if you would like to ask about the blood in your semen, you would need to open a new post. Unfortunately, those are the websites' rules
If you would like me to answer any other question not related to this topic, you may request me in the new question , just start with "Dr Brims only" and it will come directly to me
If you still have questions regarding sleep I am happy to answer them now
Okay thanks anyway.
