Sleepwalking...

I have never had sleep disorders, or anything related. Recently, I've begun having trouble concentrating at work. The other night I woke up with my hand on my bedroom door with no recollection of how I got there. All I knew is that I wanted to get out. Does stress cause this?

Sleepyyy - dont have apnea

Quote From: jgardner1014

I cant tell you how many times i here this same story over and over. trust me when i say "YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!" I am a tech at a sleep disorders center in indiana. i do sleep studies for people who are suspected of having sleep apnea. if you dont know what apnea is, its the stopping and starting of your breathing when you sleep. it can cause you to feel extremely tired and fatigued. falling asleep fast is a symptom, as well as, extreme tiredness no matter how much sleep you get. My suggestion to you is to do some research on sleep apnea and cpap (continuous positive airway pressure) therapy. You are not lazy, well maybe you are, lol, but you may also have sleep apnea. if you have any questions, let me know. hope you figure things out so you can feel better.

Hello

I recently had a sleep study done and was told no sleep apnea and no restless legs.  I am soo tired.  I dont know what to do now.  I went to bed at 7pm last night and slept until 6am - when my alarm woke me up.  I still struggled very hard to stay awake at work and will probably go to bed at 7 or 8 tonight. I have a 3 year old son who goes to bed later than I do.  What can I do -- I'm sleeping my life away!!!!

Hi. I sympathize with you. My mom had that for years and it drove her nuts.  Long story.

The thing you need to look at is your kidneys. Kidneys control the water balance in your body. If your kidneys are off, the metabolic balance will also be thrown off. Also, check your pancreas. Do you have (even the slightest touch of diabetes?).  The reason they told you to eliminate Na+ is due to the water balance.  If that didn't help and it doesn't sound like it did :(........  have you tried to go to a nutritionist? Have them do a test on you called "prime cytotoxic". It tests all allergens in your cells, intracellularly, so its better then any allergy test you could take. Insurance companies won't pay...its about $500. Well worth it.

If you have any questions, please ask. Also go to : Gary Null's website. He has a lot of good articles on this. Good luck. You are not alone. Kimi
