Each time I try to drift off to sleep I find myself jerking awake. I've had to take my h-morph for two days. I went shopping, and spent about 5 hours out. Including dinner, which my daughter said was entertaining. She said I screamed about some kid yelling in the restaurant and it scared me so that I dropped my cup of green tea. Everything was a fog, I swear that I didn't say what I wanted to out loud and she says yep I did. Bad manners on my part, oops.
Anyway, I have always had problems with the heavy duty drugs causing nightmare, even allergy meds do that, so I have given up on sleep. So what yall doing?

Zetarlov, your jerky motions sounds like hypnocogic jerks, aka hypnic jerks. Muscle relaxers are the only way I can get to sleep when I'm having them. I hope you can find a way to get restorative sleep soon. I've been where you are and it's not good! Hugs love & prayers you sleep soon!!! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸ™πŸŒΈ. https://sleep.org/articles/hypnic-jerks/
