Is there a diagnosis or remedy for someone who falls asleep whenever he or she sits down?
I have actually fallen asleep when I had gotten back in the car while I was putting gas in the car. It sounds like sleep apnea. It can be debilitating. It had destroyed my health. The narcolepsy is a remote possibility. A sleep study can diagnosis the problem. Wearing a CPAP machine at night is a real pain, but it does work. Believe me, sleep apnea can develop into a very serious illness. My sleep study revealed that I was stopping...

get a nightlight and sometimes maybe let them stay with you! Add Night lights and dream catchers to room. Also "Guardian Angel" picture or poster is helpful for some children.

Give them time to get ready for bed with story or activity such as coloring that is calming and allows them to unwind. Ask how their day...

How can you keep from eating too much at night if you just can't sleep unless your stomach is full?
If you feel like you want to eat at night , just try getting a glass of water or juice instead. Often people put on weight because they are bored and need something to do with their hands - so they eat. If drinking instead doesn't work. Try snacking on healthy things such as fruit. I drink a cup of hot tea before bed. Try eating a very light healthy snack, such as an apple or a handful of grapes, etc. And a...

What could cause a popping sensation in your legs and backside after walking on a treadmill?
That popping feeling is called Fasciculation. When you work your muscles they contract and the blood vessels dilate. When you are done exercising and your body is returning to a normal state the twitching can occur. It should go away shortly after you finish your workout. This is normal after a good walk or jog..and usually sitting to rest. The feeling results in a "popcorn" feeling at the skins surface. ...

Why do some children talk in their sleep?
Answer It is extremely common for children to talk in their sleep. Some children may even sleep walk. Most children have experienced the "boogyman complex" Children's brains have not fully developed, so they may not be in a full REM sleep. Children and adults dream every 1/2 hour, but most of us don't remember dreams (just the odd one.) I wouldn't be too concerned unless your child has dark circles under their eyes or lethargic from lack of sleep. You did not mention...
