Hi,
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Sporadic fatal insomnia is a very rare condition and slow in its progression.  The cause is not known but  is associated with prions, which is an infection-causing protein. To rule this out, you need to have this checked by your doctor and have additional diagnostic tests done. Complete neurological examination and imaging studies such as PET and sleep study  may also be done. Take care and do keep us posted.

  There are many conditions that could include those symptoms and I do believe the Dr was saying u should see ur Dr to find out if it is in fact this or possibly something else...there is no way he or neone could tell u  if u had a condition like this just from u telling us how u feel.

Please see ur Dr and get checked.
