Posted on Mon, 30 Dec 2019
Question: HI Dr. Could you please help me figure out my sleep issues. I have an issue with falling asleep! After I fall the sleep I'm awaken with my neck feeling tight and a sensation my body is trembling or I can feel my heart rate and the pillow vibration. I notice my heart rate is between 60-70 beats up on awakening and I have taken my blood pressure and its completely normal. This happens on falling a sleep up right or laying down in bed. I have worn a 24 hour halter monitor and eco cardiogram and all is normal. please give me a list of conditions this might be... I'm very tired. Thanks David
