h3llo Posted February 27, 2009 Share Posted February 27, 2009 i've been to so many people to help me with my symptoms and now i think i have some serious sleep disorder no one is taking seriously!! but 1st. i have a question:1) i had a 24 hour eeg done to check for seizures during what was probably 20 hours. would that find a sleep disorder? it was done by my neurologist. okay i've been to too many doctors and drug stores to talk about what i've been through. im only 19 by the way. i have severe anxiety and no matter how much sleep i get i wake up feeling, oh...about as shitty as th day before. EVEN IF i take remeron, a powerful sleeping agent. my symptoms have, and always been, a sense of "half awake, half asleep. a powerful sense of unreality mixed with completely rational and grounded background thinking. even after 10 hours of sleep, or 6 or 8 or 12, i find myself yawning througout the day." now i know people will think im just being a neurotic 19 year old. whenever i hear that i get tiny litttle cancers pop up somewhere because i KNOW i neurotic. i know the psychological connection with anxiety and derealization. its something my dr. house cure quest has been based on since the time if was released from the hospital for acute anxiety. (duh) also im pretty aware that many months ago i was on this board again convinced i had, of all things, an autism spectrum disorder (which was actually sensory integration , which had the symptoms i was talking about!) and i was a dick. im so sorry but i was in a lot of pain and still am. ok let me tell you what people have told me when they sleep by me: i talk a LOT. i murmur and cuss and have very bizzare dreams, dreams so strange they could be short movies. but people tell me i am a very light sleeper who talks alot and occasionally snores. i have wondered if i'ts sleep apnea because of how tired i feel during the day no matter how much i sleep but 2 things: 1) im not fat, im tall and mildy in shape (for a 19 year old dude) and 2: my blood pressure s very low! i thought thos types have high! but another thing is, my sleep problems (including getting up to pee a lot and poor sleep) started to get worse after my tonsils were taken out. i don't know. please please help in case you can't get the ghist of it im losing my fuckin mind! im gonna be like the guy from fight club if i don't get help! literally nothing is getting through to me when i talk to people even if im on my adhd med i feel so zoned out i never feel connected with anyone. even my job (cart pusher) is lagging and im getting those agitated, serial killer vibes! (not really. btw i could quit right now and be a successfull writer in case no one has noticed. i have a big ego ) OKAY nuff of that. should i get one of those sleep tests? what has helped you guys is sleep apnea common in 19 year olds thank yoooooooooooooooouuuuuu!!!!
