Customer Question

Hello, my name is***** am unable to sleep due to really bad insomnia. I again for the past almost week have not had any sleep. I'm scared with noone to turn too and scared I might die from this.
JA: The Psychologist can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. When did the insomnia start? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: I was having small jerks that kept me waking up as late as last year that kept waking me up. But they just got worse after taking the medication for a kidney infection. levofloxacin. I took it on Saturday and Sunday. I've gone to the er for the insomnia several times with them only giving a single strong panic buster. this only lasted 6 hours. I am having constant jerking and talking in my head that wont allow me to help. I tried many other ways to sleep but can't. I am really scared since no doctor will see me about this untill tuesday. I can't keep not sleeping as this is affecting my day to day life including work.
JA: How severe has the insomnia been?
Customer: Very
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?
