    A few of you out there who pretty much got used to me know that I have a constantly thinking mind. I am very energetic and sometimes even hyper. I also have insomnia. I usually survive on four hours of sleep. This has been going on for about six years. No, I'm not on meth or crank or any of that yucky stuff, either. I don't like polluting my body.

    For the past three months or so, I have been having scary episodes where all of a sudden, I feel like I'm going to fall asleep. I could be in the middle of throwing frieght, having a conversation, reading or driving. I get real dizzy, and I usually am not able to snap out of it until I actually sleep. Until then, my mind is fuzzy, I can't focus. I actually have cut my hand pretty bad because of it. I know when it's going to happen. I can't control it and I feel helpless. Those close to me know it's bad when I say "Oh no, I'm going down again" - at that point I'm ready to pass out or faint or fall asleep, or whatever I do. I call it "zoning" out.

    I need all of you BF doctors out there to give me opinions (besides "go to a doctor"). That is unobtainable at this moment.

    Thanks.

    Seriously.. this sounds like nothing to joke with, -certaintly do not heed the advice from the foo forum ppl -(no offense of course)- about potential neurological issues. Any advice other than to go see a physician immediately is not good advice. Why are you not able to do this? Why can't you see a physician or specialist in a hospital or clinic somewhere?

    I agree with red house that it might be best to see a physician if the dizy feeling/loss of concentration is quite intense.

    Something similar happens to me when my blood pressure drops (my pressure is known to be generally low) In those occasions if I'm in front of the TV or the computer I just rest my head and fall asleep immediatelly (it actually feels more like fainting than falling asleep).

    Yeah I do but with me it's mostly that I don't want to fall asleep because for some reason, I feel like there's more interesting stuff to do. You should buy one of those wrist blood pressure monitors and check if your BP has dropped considerably when you feel really tired like that.

    What is Narcolepsy?


    Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder caused by the brain's inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally. At various times throughout the day, people with narcolepsy experience fleeting urges to sleep. If the urge becomes overwhelming, individuals will fall asleep for periods lasting from a few seconds to several minutes. In rare cases, some people may remain asleep for an hour or longer. In addition to excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), three other major symptoms frequently characterize narcolepsy: cataplexy, or the sudden loss of voluntary muscle tone; vivid hallucinations during sleep onset or upon awakening; and brief episodes of total paralysis at the beginning or end of sleep. Narcolepsy is not definitively diagnosed in most patients until 10 to 15 years after the first symptoms appear. The cause of narcolepsy remains unknown. It is likely that narcolepsy involves multiple factors interacting to cause neurological dysfunction and sleep disturbances.



    I just Googled it. This doesn't sound like me.

    Go to a sleep clinic. Could be any of the things already mentioned, but the doctors at the sleep clinic should be able to sort you out. Poor sleeping patterns may be indicative of other health problems. If you can supplement your health insurance, do it and get yourself checked out. Good luck.

    Sis....you KNOW you should go to a doctor, but if that isn't doable at the moment, I'd go to places like webmd or other places that have medical forums and ask. You might get MUCH better advice there.

    I'm not sure its narcolepsy. I had a friend who had narcolepsy, and she never felt it "coming on". She just would occasionally wake up not knowing she had even fallen asleep (even in the car sometimes).

    Do you have any way to check your blood pressure and/or blood sugar (or anything else that can be measured)? If so, try to do it during good times and when this happens to see if anything measureable is going "out of norm".

    I lived with a G/F who has Narcolepsy.

    She would never really just fall asleep, but would take naps. You know feel tired and lay down and poof she was out. Course she was taking ritalin to keep awake during the day.

    But she sure as hell had the rest of the symtoms! Scarey **** when the paralysis hit at night. Freaked me out! She would talk away in her sleep too LOL had some pretty interesting conversations to say the least.

    I would think there are many levels of Narcolepsy just with any disorders out there, lord knows I have seen my share with the people around me.

    My Daughter (age 12) has Tourettes
    My Step Son (age 8) has Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis
    My Step Daughter (age 24) has Multiple Sclerosis
    Pop (age 70) has Diabetes and "had" Cancer
    Mom (age unknown) has Lupus

    CRIPES!!!
    Makes ya think about what you have and how good we really have it.

    Myself? Nothing much yet, "bangs head on 2x4 for luck" unless you count a Gall Bladder to be removed next month? ha ha ha

    FWIW,
    Stop reading medical diagnoses on the forum and stop trying to self diagnose off the internet.
    Get to the doctor for blood tests.

    Seems like the forums will have the worst case or even make it sound worse.
