Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with vast experience in diagnosing and treating all neurological & health conditions including sleep disorders and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

Sorry to see you are suffering from difficulty with your sleep (insomnia/inability maintain sleep) and also you are very tired due to this reason. And I see you have tried myriad treatments to help but all in vain and you are continuing to suffer.

Have you tried any medical devices already? Do you want to try a medical device that can help with insomnia/maintaining sleep and help you get very good sleep and also help with your tiredness? It is free of any side effects and simple to use, and not habit forming or addictive because it is not a medication. Do you want me to give more information on this medical device?

Best Regards!
