| | Help me solve the puzzle of my hypersomnia!!
Hey all, I've had really bad daytime sleepiness for about 2 years now and it has progressively getting worse. Most days I find myself laying in bed and looking out the window because that's all I can do. The best way to describe my fatigue is that it seems to be mostly "in my head". I feel groggy, sleepy, and like there is an incredible weight over me making everything I do hard. Naps don't seem to help and the sleepiness comes in waves. My concentration is bad too and even watching TV is too hard sometimes.
Here's the pieces of the puzzle
*I am 26 and according to doctors, am incredibly healthy.
*Sleep studies have found nothing significant.
*I was a personal trainer so I'm still in good shape and try to exercise whenever I can muster the energy (which is becoming rarer)
*I've had pretty much every blood test I can think of and nothing significant.
*Stimulants usually don't work. Caffeine, Energy drinks, Nuvigil included.
*I've tried many medications and the only thing that has made me feel normal again is Bupropion (Welbutrin) but it stopped after a month despite dose increasing.
*I'm not depressed.
Any insight would be great. I'd also like to hear from anyone with a similar problem. Thank you!
