Was seeing a doctor about pain and lack of sleep due to the pain.After 11 months of little or no sleep, usually 1 to 2 hours a day,the doctor says thats normal. People do not need alot of sleep, up to 2 hours a day is sufficient for anyone to be productive in any given 24 hour period.Now 2 years later,still suffer sleep deprivation and doctor says there are no medical evidence that any harm is being done.Whe I questioned the doctor about what the american journal of medicine says about sleep deprivation, his reply was the journal has no medical justification.When questioned about Fibromylasia, his reply was it was just a medical term for a mild headache and take a couple motrin and its all good.As far as pain control, his reply ,along with his coleagues was take 4 motrin or equivelant 4 times a day, and then after 2 weeks double up the dose, and after that he prescribed doubeling up that dose. So at 9,600 mgs of motrin and related OTC's, I questioned about short term and long term effects. His reply was there are no known side effects of OTC pain relievers.I have discontinued all medications, and still somewhat function during the day, and yes I even drive on public roadways in my condition.
