Chronic Fatigue Board Index


I am a 37 yr old female who, since the day i was born, have constantly slept my life away! When i was little my mom told me i would sleep for 23 out of 24 hours and even then she would wake me up to eat and i would go right back down again....once i got older i would have to nap after being awake for a few hours and it hasn't stopped since! It really bothers me because i only have one life and feel like i sleep most of it away:( if i wake up at lets say 9 am by 2 pm i am beat and need a 2 hour nap so if i wake up by 4ish by 7 i am dead tired again and have to fight to stay awake but once i get past a 2 hour mark my tiredness goes away....or i will sleep again for an hour and go to bed by midnight and sleep through the night. My mom always took me for tests because people told her it was not normal and it isn't! but ALL the tests came back with nothing wrong. Even to this day i can not go an entire day without taking a minimum 1-2 hour nap at least once a day and i wake up feeling so guilty because the nap felt so good but i felt like i wasted yet another part of my life i could be doing other things:( why do i require so much sleep in my life? it takes away time from my husband, my kids and any fun i could be having! sometimes i have no problem sleeping 17 hrs at a time, i can wake up and then an hour or 2 later go for another 2 hr nap!

Have you been tested/evaluated for narcolepsy? Or have you had a sleep study?
Seems to me, from your symptoms, these would be the first things to do. This does not sound like CFS to me, or even chronic fatigue; the two are not the same. You sound more sleepy than sick with CFS.
I do hope you find out why this is happening to you. I would insist on further evaluations for it.
