Are you able to wake up for bathroom needs?
Thanks for your reply, I never had any trouble waking to use the bathroom, mom said even through potty training when I was small I would wake her up to go to use the bathroom. However now that I am older I have noticed that I wake up hurting in my abdomine and lower back all to realize I hold my urine through the night and upon wakening I will go to the bathroom and the pain is releaved so I think I dont wake when I have the urge to urinate at night. I do know that I am deaf to alarm clocks I dont hear them at all even the most irritating loud ones. This is sure a BIG problem between me and my husband, and he has left to work because he was unsuccessful waking me and sometimes I will get up on my own and sometimes I dont therefore my daughter sometimes will be late for school. But even going to bed early doesnt help. I cant hold down a job unless it is third shift and the first shift jobs I worked I would almost kill myself rushing to work and would be sleepy all day. I dont know maybe there is just no help for this. I looked up all the sleep disorders and none of them add up to me.
I am sorry I do suffer sleep Paralysis and this could possibly be why I cant stimulate myself enough to wake up or anyone else for that matter. I wish I could get a doctors help or tests run but I have no health insurance so thats that.
