I use sleep as android, and find out he lots of useful features like monitoring your sleep cycles, recording yourself while asleep (useful to monitor disturbed sleep, snoring, etc), different sounds to help you get to sleep, a smart alarm clock that you can set to wake you when you are in the lightest sleep phase, rather than when you are in deep sleep, so you don't wake up feeling tired and unrested, and more. I have been using it for over 2 years. Started with the free version, but was so impressed I upgraded to the paid version.
I use sleep as android and have done for years, I also upgraded as I was so impressed with their product.
I was astounded at how my sleep patterns changed when my pain medications hit the sweet spot and I was actually sleeping like a normal person would ... I knew something was different but I didn't know what until I looked at the charts on sleep as android and it showed an almost flat line for most of the night opposed to waking and moving every hour.
Is there s version of this app for the iPhone??? I would really get it with no problem so that I could get a better handle on my sleep (or lack thereof) patterns. It would be beneficial to know how to nail down that sweet spot and sleep like I used to. I haven't slept in a bed for approximately 8 years because of my spine and neck, etc,,. Any info would be great. OH! Can anyone tell me if they have had success with acupuncture?
I have been usining an iOS app call SleepCycle. It works using the feature in the iPhone that is motion sensitive. You can try it for free although in order to use all features available you need full version.
I don't know about any apps, but I have been seeing an acupuncturist weekly for about six months now. It makes a huge difference for me, especially with hip pain and muscles that refuse to relax. If you can, find one that specializes in pain.
