Re: Head falling asleep?
My very first thought would be that something,when you are lying down,is actually compromising one(or possibly more?) of the cranial nerves.the most likely area would be somewhere along the c spine area.there could be small bone spurs there or little herniations or some other spinal issue.if this is actively going on,it needs evaluating with at the very least,an x ray to see how the discs and vertebrae are actually lying.if nothing actually shows up,then an MRI really should be done to try and pinpoint the area of compromise."something" is most definitely affecting a cranial somewhere or your head would not be falling asleep in any area.
just make an appt with your primary to obtain the eval and get the baseline X rays started.but i really do think that to really "see" your particular nerve issue an MRI would definitely be indicated at some point.good luck and please keep me posted on what you find out.marcia
