PATTY--your kids are lucky to have such a determined mother.
With all your research have you read any specific relationship between ADD(little to no hyperactivity - diagnosed mild ADD with short- term memory and organizationalproblems) and
insomnia? My 16yr son has ADHD but only takes ritalin on school days; the insomnia occurs on and off the ritalin days. He's had a sleep study and found he has spontaneous arousals all night.
He also has restless legs and periodic limp movements. When he hasn't slept well, he gets dizzy all day when standing after sitting.
MD's haven't put it all together--I think it is all related-it all gets worse when he's tired.
But I'm stumped at what to do not? any ideas?
