Patient discussion about wakefulness
Q. Waking up to the bathroom I'm a 66 years old man and usually healthy, but in the last few months I find myself waking up several times during the night to urinate. It also takes the stream longer than usuall to end. I don't have pain during urinating, and other than that everything is more or less OK. Can that be related to the prostate? I heard that in adult men the prostate grows and obstruct the urine. Does that mean I have cancer in the prostate? Thank you!
Q. migraine headaches that wake you up early morning?
However, in a patient with the recent onset of nocturnal headaches, brain tumor and glaucoma should be carefully excluded so consulting a doctor may be indicated.
Q. I go to sleep & use to wake up paralyzed in my sleep. I go to sleep & use to wake up paralyzed in my sleep. But not asleep, just laying there, eyes wide open paralyzed. I couldn't breath, I couldn't speak, move anything but my eyes. I could look around but I couldn't even breathe. This has happened a few times in my old house, once in my mother's house (she lived by the side of a graveyard), and then only once in my new house. What is it and what do you think is causing it?
