Wison, My symptoms are a result of chronic insomnia:

Customer Question
Hello Dr. Wison, Doctor's...

Hello Dr. Wison,

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

My symptoms are a result of chronic insomnia: lethargic

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have struggling with this for 25 years. Have tried almost every herbal supplement (although just tried hops), yoga, meditation, hypnosis , acupuncture. Also been to my primary care for this problem for 25 years. I feel I cannot live the rest of my life with this problem. Where else can I turn, I'm running out of hope.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
