I use Dr. Sahelian's method for better sleep 8)(it works for me)--he suggests--

 "Use sleep relaxation techniques.
Once you are in bed, take a deep breath and gradually let it out. Do this a few times. Then, lightly shake one of your feet, and go back to taking a couple of deep breaths. Lightly shake the other foot and then take a couple of deep breaths. Move up to your legs, hips, arms, neck, muscle around the mouth, eye muscles, etc., while going back to the breath after shaking each body part. Soon you'll be in la la land."
see--http://www.raysahelian.com/sleep.html

OH SIR! I knew when I saw you posted here you were taking your sleepy tabs and My face lit up with a huge dang smile... I am so glad you did.. You need to take them sooner! Not wait for three days.. Who am I to talk I won't take medfor sleep at all as it makes me feel like crude and most interfere with other meds I take! Happy that you are going to sleep! Be well and sleep well!

That is a good stretch, But I am sorry you had such a headache when you awoke! I hate those headaches, usually mine are migraines when I wake with them! Feel better loretta!
