It sounds like NARCOLEPSY. That's what I've been diagnosed with. I always thought narcolepsy meant one just fell asleep--like while walking down the street or something. That is one of the symptoms, but the actual diagnosis is that narcoleptics have way too much REM sleep. I go into REM sleep within 90 seconds after falling asleep; normal sleepers go into about 90 minutes they fall asleep. There are some medications, such as Xyrem, but it didn't work for me. I know exactly how you feel--never refreshed, dream all night. It never ends. Get a sleep study done. I'm going to my third neurologist in two weeks.
Saw a post you made some time ago and hope you will visit us in the WL&D community. There is much encouragement and information being shared, trackers being used and a new food journal that will be online soon. Hope to you will join us and be a regular participant. Very best wishes .. Ranae
