... no where. I've always delt with very bad fatigue but nothing like this... I started out of no where sleeping 24/7 it was pure hell (still is) I would "pass out"all the time I can't fight the tiredness, I keep literally nodding off while trying to write this. I take aderall and that doesn't Even wake me up. I go on what I call sleep binges some times I'll sleep for 2 straight ttttttt. They did a million blood tests but OF COURSEit came back normal, I have other symptoms with it, I sweat to death at night I wake up soaked. At the beginning my mind was very very off every thing was foggy/cloudy. I couldn't have a conversation without losing track with what I was saying or stutttering bad. my whole body feels just like I got guy by a t train... =(. I have a Sleep study coming up, they think its narcolepsy but I don't want to have that:/ they'res no cure for it just medication... I don't know what to think or do besides Sleep lol. I gained 8 lbs witch is terrible ! ... so I must have nooded out 25 times while trying to eyrie this, it isn't all the that I wanted to say but I'm going to end this now before I might accidentally erase it I'll answer any question I just pay that some one out there has been kinda like thus but could give me advice... Think you! :)
Nice to meet you. Sounds like the Sleep Study will be very welcome to figure out if your condition is truly Narcolepsy. I caution you not to drive in the meantime and try to keep yourself safe from falls. You must also be very careful when cooking. Undiagnosed Narcolepsy can lead to other health problems later in life, so it is indeed important to get yourself taken care of. The good news is that there are medications to help you get back to more normal living. I didn't check, but I'm sure this site has a Support Group just for Narcolepsy. It's clear from your post that you have not your sense of humor! No matter what challenges we face, we will live a more balanced life with a bit less stress if we can laugh at ourselves. Please come back and let us know how you're doing.

A sleep study is always a good thing.Have you been checked for Type 2 diabetes?I noticed you had complaints of night sweats,weight gain,insomnia,and memory loss.I know not getting sleep would definately cause memory issues.But the one person I know who has has Narcolepsy,does not nod off.They fall completely asleep.I am not an expert at all on that condition.It just that the night sweats and weight gain,especially if you are taking Adderall is suspicious.I myself was prediabetic for 2 years.I didn't even know it.I have had Gestational Diabetes with 2 pregnancies.So,you would think after having to take insulin injections.And having the diabetes before,I would have picked up on it earlier.But i didn't.
I was scheduled for a Glucose Tolerence test,Which I thought was pointless.I had unexlained 15lb.weight gain,I just could not get rid of.Occasional night sweats.I would wake up drenched(my shirt).I was very tired and some depression.My child was almost 3 at the time.I had a 15,10,8 and 3 year old children in the home.I put it off as fatigue from the children.Wasn't really sure.I know I could not sleep.Anyway,long story short... Diabetic.I really hope you have already had this test and have ruled this out!I would not wish Diabetes on anyone.Just wondering... Hope you find your answer as to what is causing your problems.Good Luck!
