    I have sleep apnea and find it very uncomfortable to use the CPAP machine all through the night. Your recommendation to lose weight does not work for me because I don’t have much weight to lose. I just have about 5 pounds to lose, if even that. Do you have any other natural recommendations for sleep apnea?

    I suffer from General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and have been taking tranquilizers for several years. I usually try and take my last dosage around 7:00pm. I am 54 and normally go to bed around 9:30pm, or so after I help my wife put the kids to bed.

    I have tried to ween with the assistance of my Doctor off of Clonazepam, but it is better that I stay on this medication. I was recently terminated from my job after 34 years, and almost went through forecloser proceedings.

    I have a 17 year old son who is a drug addict, so I do not suffer from the normal stress of life.

    I have chronic neck pain from degenerating discs in my cervical spine. I get extreme muscle tension up and down the muscle that connect to my skull and where it connects to my skull it is very painful. I have limited rotation when it comes to turning my head to the side. The pain also radiates down into my shoulder and beneath my scapula.
    I was taking aleve (2) or ibprofen (800 mg) to little relief. I have received 2 cortisone injections spaced about 3 months apart and they offer instant relief. My doctor first tried oral cortisone and I’m allergic to it, ie system wide fungal infection, facial skin feels like orange peel, voice hoarse, painful pimples on my head. My question concerns the issue of how often can I receive injections and is there anything else I can do? I am 71 years old and female in otherwise good health
