I know I ask a lot of questions, but that's what we are all here for right? LOL
Anyways, does anyone else sleep for 12-14 or more hours and feel like they go into a coma? Everytime I wake up I feel happy to still be alive, because I just feel like I die when I sleep. Does this go away with treatment?

I have the oppsite I hardly ever sleep, maybe 4 to 5 hours a day, I am always tired no matter what I even take two different sleep meds, but my daughter on the other hand sleeps sometimes for days and other days she doesn't sleep at all, maybe u need supplements to make you have some energy or maybe get vitamin levels checked or addrenal glands Just a thought, everyone is different Good Luck!!

Sicklyme,
I am happy you can sleep. I use to be like that but things changed recently. Now I am more like MrsScampi.

I know when we sleep is the time our body heals, so sleep is good! I think deep sleep is even better for our health.

If I could sleep I wouldn't be posting this after 1 am at night lol.

Enjoy it while you can [Smile]

ditto

I used to sleep 14 hours or so

now 4 at most

I think the disease changes as it progresses

first your body can still fight it, then it kills your sleep cycle to keep you sick, like it lowers you body temp - scary stuff

When I first got sick, all I could do was sleep, very deep long sleep in excess of 12 hours.

Now after on meds for 8 weeks. I am only sleeping little amounts usually 2 hours stints, lots of napping and falling asleep with people around.
