    No sleep for a year

    Hi, I am a 36 yr. old female, who hasn't sleep at all, no lie, for a yr now. I have tried otc sleep aids in the excess of 8 pills at once, sometimes just what the dosage says, ambien, lunesta, seroquel and I'm on haldo which used to work yrs ago, but doesn't anymore. I have been to two neurologists who specialize in sleep and they don't know what to do so they referred me to a psychiciatrist whom I say last tuesday and he is going to get my haldol switched to another drug and calling my neurologist to try another sleep med but the thing is I don't get tired at all. I've tried joining a gym for excersice, walking and melatonin. I have a cool room and no stress. I can't take not sleeping anymore, I'm so jealous of ppl that sleep even for a few hours would be better then this. I think I have sporadic fatal insomnia, I know it's very rare but I have no ability to sleep. To top it all off I'm pregnant and due in ten days and the dr is talking about having to put me to sleep if you do a casaraian and the pain shot doesn't work they put you to sleep. Well, I don't ever go to sleep, not even for ten minutes. I would go to a sleep clinic but what's the point if you do not sleep. I have thought about going to mayo clinic. I don't know what else to do at this point. I haven't been tested for fatal insomnia, I don't know if there is a test for that or not, do you know? Any advice would be great. Thanks.

    If you had not slept at all for a year, you would be dead. So you are sleeping some and just don't realize it. If you are under anesthesia, you don't feel anything so no pain shot is needed. And yes, you need to go to a sleep clinic but being this pregnant and about to deliver is going to make that an issue. You should have done it when all this started.
