Hi adv,
I posted this a while ago but i would like to explain my situation a little bit better.

I have been to the doctor more than i like for all kinds of things so id rather ask here first.


I have a lot of trouble with staying awake when i feel sleepy.
If my eyelids get heavy i have about 5 minutes before i fall asleep, how hard i try to stay awake.
One moment i feel very energetic and then suddenly i feel sleepy and i fight and i fight to stay awake, and after 5 or 10 minutes i just close my eyes and im gone.

I have tried everything but i cant fight falling asleep when im tired.

My friends think its pretty weird because when they are feeling sleepy they can stay awake for hours if they want to

I have a couple of examples:

>hanging out with a friend, watching a movie and half way in the movie my eyes start to get heavy and 5 minutes later i am gone and impossible to wake.
> i get woken up by my father throwing a glass of water in my face because alarmclocks dont wake me, i just dont hear them
>sleep through fire alarm and my bose sounddock on max volume( you could hear the sound a block away)

>if i get a ride from someone and im sitting on the passenger seat i fall asleep no matter how long we drive, after 5 minutes i just fall asleep

>got home from work one day 2 weeks ago, collapsed in bed and slept for 15 hours straight
>cant keep my eyes open when my eyelids are getting heavy and im driving my car

I can keep going on about this

Does this sound like narcolepsy?

I always thought that people who have that shit just collapse and sleep in the blink of an eye..

Anyone got some ideas?


I go to bed at 22:00 and wake up at 06:00, i dont use my computer or phone, the room isnt warm and its ventilated.

How is your diet? Are you a fatty? You might be diabetic.

It certainly sounds like it might be narcolepsy to me, but I know nothing about the actual disease.

In popular culture its portrayed as falling asleep without warning. You describe falling asleep suddenly in the car or watching a movie.

Talk to a doctor, dude.

Sounds nice. I work 12 hour nights and I find it really fucking hard to sleep unless I run myself ragged beforehand.

And even then, I sleep like 5 hours and I'm totally at the mercy of the doorbell or phone or just the fucking sun being too bright.

You got a good thing going man. Shame it doesn't work for you.

Allright i will do..

So you guys dont have problem with staying awake when you dont want to fall asleep yet?
