When you suffer from heart failure there will be a decline in the ability of the heart to circulate blood throughout the body and this can lead to fluid build-up in the lungs and tissues. This collection of fluids in the lungs results in poor sleep because you will wake up periodically during the night due to a lack of breath.
You can redress this issue by sleeping with a few pillows in order to elevate your body. Benzodiazepine sleeping tablets also help people with heart problems to get adequate sleep and others may need a device that helps them to breathe during the night.
Heart failure is often linked to obstructive sleep apnoea which is a sleeping disorder characterised by frequent night time awakenings. Another sleeping disorder is the need to urinate frequently during the night which is referred to as Nocturia. A mild case of Nocturia is getting up once or twice during the night but there are people who wake up 5-6 times to urinate.
You can relieve the symptoms of frequent night time urination by drinking less especially in the evenings and make it a habit to stop imbibing liquids after a certain time each day. If you continue to drink too much liquid resulting in loss of deep sleep you will feel exhausted and drained during the day. In addition to cutting back on your liquid intake you can take sleeping pills to help you sleep.
Although it is important to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated, it is not good for your health and well-being if you are drinking so much liquid that the need to urinate constantly interrupts your sleep. You will feel miserable if you suffer from sleep deprivation - a condition that can be rectified with sleeping pills.
Sleeping tablets subdue activity in the central nervous system and make you feel calm and tranquil making it easier for you to fall and remain asleep for the duration of the night. To get the sleep you need you can take one of the sleeping pills 30 minutes prior to your bed time. It is of great importance that you do not exceed the dosage of one tablet per night.
