You are definately anxious before bedtime and this will impair your sleep. I suggest that you consult your doctor for a script for Trepilene 5 to 10 mg at night. If you do suffer from general anxiety disorder, your doctor can prescribe a newer generation antidepressant that can be taken in the morning to alleviate your symptoms. Your doctor will also assess the weakness in your hand and if warranted, x-rays of your neck can be done to determine if there is nerve impinchment causing the weakness of your hand.
