Went from not being able to sleep to cannot wakeup completely.
For the longest time I could not sleep because I was always too uncomfortable. This last week I am getting way too much sleep despite the being uncomfortable. My wife and I have agreed that it is because I am experiencing exacerbations. I already know that my balance, gait and all over demeanor are all noticeably problematic.
I this a normal situation when one is experiencing exacerbations?
When I had my 1st exacerbation rear it's head. I could not stay up. I did not know what was the matter w/me, except that I had all the thinking, chewing, walking, problems, etc.
I would go to work, come home, go to bed and not wake up even once. In the morning, I felt like I never slept. It is horrible fatigue. This lasted as long as the problems did, a little over 3 months.
It did get much better, just took all that time. I suggest you go with it, when you can, if it is an exacerbation. I hope it resolves soon, so you'll know the difference from the daily tiredness, and fatigue MS stuff from the flair up. . .
Just wanted to say I too have suffered from that awful fatigue. I have slept 14 hours and got up feeling like I had not slept at all. It too was when I had major symptoms going on. I do now suffer from constant fatigue and still get the extreme fatigue when in a major flare or whatever I have.
