There has to be something wrong with me. It's really annoying
I do that all the time. Do you expierience day time sleepiness without 14 hours?
I'll go for about 12 hours if I'm left alone.
Someone told me that its impossible to sleep too much, if your body needs sleep, it will keep on sleeping
yeah no matter what amount of sleep I get, I'll have daytime sleepiness.
I had that problem and went to a sleep specialist. He ended up sending me to a sleep center to monitored my sleep for a night and found that I have neurological sleep apnea (idopathic hypersomnia) meaning my brain leaves REM sleep and goes into a semi-consious state several times an hour. This leads to daytime sleepiness.
They prescribed me xyrem which is GHB.
how much did that cost?
im usually 11-12 hours. Maybe it has something to do with us pushing our bodies harder then average people and needing that extra rest to recover?
isnt sleep apnea when you stop breathing everything you get into REM and keep waking yourself up or something like that
with the insurance I have on months prescription is about $100 co-pay.
same here, getting to sleep at night is tough for me also, but during the day I just want to sleep
Apneas is when you stop breathing which can be obstructive or nuerologically related. The interuption causes you to come out of REM sleep and into a semi-concious state similar to right before/after you fall asleep.
Thats not too out of the ordinary especially for young people. I'm assuming you like to party & drink to the wee hours of the morning. Everyone expieriences some form of insomnia at some point in their life, using good sleep hygiene can help break the habit.
edit: not that this is easy to do or as simple as it sounds.
On the weekends I will get 12-14 hours of sleep non stop if left alone, with about 8 hours sleep on the weekdays and I get daytime sleepyness as well.
For daytime sleepiness my doctor prescribed me ritalin & provigil. The provigil is $$$ but it keeps you wide awake as a motha fucka.
speaking of this thread, i'm going to lay down right now
i never can sleep more than 7 hours a night unless im drinking the night before. it has its benefits and disadvantages.
i think i have that problem
Same here, So i just make sure that i don't ever fall asleep in the day. Taking a hit of weed right before i go to bed will make me fall asleep.
fuckin I got to sleep at 4 this morning didnt wake back up till 2 in the afternoon, this fuckin sux.
Aids can also cause daytime sleepiness.
sometimes ill have the hardest time keeping awake like my eyes will shut then when i try to open them it will feel lie im tripping
during the week I usually sleep anywhere from 6-10 hours a night but on weekends no matter what I can't sleep past 8am so I usually end up taking 2 or 3 naps during the day
for me it really just depends on what I have to do in the day. If i have nothing to do I will just keep sleeping.
