Starting new thread as suggested by bethsheba in an effort to
sort of poll the folks on this board interested in or having issues
about staying awake all day (especially in the afternoons). I
lived with this condition for many long years thinking of it as
'merely' a sleep issue rather than looking into it as a medical
problem. Now that I have learned otherwise I have scanned
these boards but find little information. Since I have learned
it's name and been prescribed a relief med I am really wondering
how many like me are out there living with discomfort and
worse without realizing it is a labeled medical condition known
as 'hypersomnia' and may be related to sleep apnea or an
autonomic nervous system problem or 'ideopathic'. And that
even if not curable that there is some relief available.
So please speak up, let's share information.
