It seems nowadays that everyone has heard of someone who has taken Ambien or Ambien CR and exhibited bizarre behavior while not fully awake.
According to a 2011 study entitled: Functional Neuroimaging Insights into the Physiology of Human Sleep. by researchers Thien Thanh Dang-Vu, MD, PhD, Manuel Schabus, PhD and others, it shows that when “sleep spindle” shaped brainwaves are present, the auditory sound input is blocked out. So for all intents and purposes you can snooze right next to your human buzz-saw of a partner and never hear a peep.
A recent study performed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology has shown a strong correlation between long term sleep deprivation and fibromyalgia. In the report women, ages 20 to 44, who “often”or “always” had problems with sleeping were at three times greater risk of developing fibromyalgia than their counterparts who didn’t have trouble with sleep. And if a test subjects were 45 or older, the risk went up to five fold.
The other difficult challenge for fibromyalgia sufferers is finding treatments that provide any relief from the daily pain or that can improve their sleep quality without the use of sleeping pills.
For those living in larger cities and surrounding suburbs, access to in-office neurofeedback clinics is just a matter of a short 15 minute drive. But what about those living in remote areas or small towns with no clinics available?
It seems that there is new hope in the form of at-home neurofeedback technology conducted live over the Internet. “It’s really quite simple”, say David A. Dubin, M.D., medical director for Sleep Recovery Centers, Inc. “After obtaining a written prescription from their primary care physician or psychiatrist, we ship a complete system package via UPS to anywhere in the US or Canada, and providing the new patient has home Wifi, the rest is easy”. The treatment uses a Skype HD video and audio feed for sensor hookup, direct communication between patient and technician and all follow up services. Tech support software allows for neurofeedback software monitoring and adjustments in near real-time. A Belgian study using this same neurofeedback delivery model showed significant improvements on sleep quality, reduced sleep latency (time falling asleep) and increased short term memory during the day.
The number one challenge for panic attack sufferers is moving about freely in public. Anxiety, environmental stress and interacting with other people can leave those with severe anxiety and panic exhausted and frustrated.
