No just can not turn my mind off. I just want to get some sleep. My father in law did pass a couple of months ago and it has been crazy.

Thanks for the information.

I can understand your situation and ongoing things.

It seems like you are a lot of things in your mind and unable to sleep. You can try a few things at home, but might require prescription sleep meds for short-term to help you with sleep. Things to do at home: Keep your bedtime and wake time consistent from day to day, including on weekends; Stay active; Avoid or limit naps; Avoid or limit caffeine and alcohol and don't use nicotine; Avoid large meals and beverages before bed.

Please leave a positive rating by clicking stars on your screen so that I can get the credit for my time with you. If you have any follow-up question,you can reply to this post.

Regards,

Dr. Shah

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.
