Just a question

Postby elusive55 » Thu Mar 12, 2020 5:23 pm

I might talk to my doctor about this, but it's nothing too pressing for me. I'm not asking if I _have_ this, but am just wondering if anybody can relate to what I say?

I don't have uncontrollable urges to sleep during the day, but I do often experience sleep paralysis, and some days I get really tired despite having slept all night.

I did some research on this topic, and I don't think I "fit" into this category, but I'm just wondering if anyone can relate to this exactly?

I can also be tired the next day " despite having slept all night".
Maybe it isn't "quality" sleep? There can be many factors tied into this, rule out the possible physical things first.
I would pursue this discussion with your physician. They may refer you on to a sleep specialist or overnight sleep monitor trial?
My eyes begin to close around sunset. I haven't been able to stay up until midnight in ages. My cat gets me up about 3:30am because I have to be at work at 5:00am.
I take naps on my day off. I try to watch what I eat and drink before bed.
I am on Sertraline which helps unclutter and quiet my mind which can be busy and noisy when idle. The med seems to help me fall asleep more easily.
Best of luck to you. :D
