    I go through phases like this, and all I do is sleep. Its not good sleep, or I would wake up feeling better. I know I need to rest sometimes, but I can not get anything done. It's like I take a nap, and wake up thinking that, ok I am ready to do some housework, then I get sleepy again. I do feel lucky that I am going to sleep, because I have had it where I just dont get much sleep at all. The fibro pain is still there no matter how much I sleep.

    Then on top of that, its causeing my blood sugars to go a little crazy. Especially when I fall asleep just after I eat.

    Anyone have this happen?

    It is weird to hear of someone else having the same problem.
    I am really scared because I looked up brain tumor (my grandfather died of brain tumor) but I have all of the symptoms. I understand what you mean about not sleeping and also about sleping too much. Since tuesday I have been sleeping almost all day. I also haven't been able to eat without vomitting. Ever since I got sick I have been having weird blood sugar's 50-300 and blood pressure's 70/40. I have been having to use my wheelchair for everyting including going to the restroom. I am so lucky to have the hubby I have. Then at one point today I thought I was over this mess wrong! I fell in the dining room, and it is carpet I got major rug burns and now I realized that I must have hit my head hard. Hope you will get to feeling better soon. crispangel Pam

    I'm going thru this right now. But at least this time I can come up with a reason.

    I know that whenever I expend any extra energy I'm going to crash ~ and crash hard!! But I've come to the realization that I can't just sit on me bum and do nothing for the rest of my life, you know?

    My friend and I spent a day out on the 12th ~ I figured it would be 3 hours tops. We had such a great time (and she's my best friend, so she would stop for me to sit and take rests whenever I needed them ~ probably the only friend who does understand this DD). That 3 hour estimate turned into almost 9 hours. YIKES.

    OK, I figured I'd crash a few days, a week and be fine.

    What I had no way of knowing was that 2 days later my daughter had a miscarriage ~ that threw me for a loop emotionally, especially since she lives 1,000 miles away.

    She was in a bit of denial for the first few days, I was a wreck. Then she started to deal with it and we had a lot of conversations about the baby she lost.

    Needless to say the physical exertion followed by a huge emotional exertion has me totalled. I'm glad to have been there for my precious daughter, even if it was long distance. But I have just slept pretty much for 40 hours straight ~ except for potty breaks and trying to put a bit of nutrition into my body.

    That said, I have gone thru times where all I can do is sleep w/o a trigger also. My main problem with the marathon sleeps is restless leg ~ guess it's not that hard to figure out. All that inactivity, the muscles have to be screaming to move, right?

    These past 2 months, especially have been absolutely miserable for me. I so know what you're talking about. I want my life back.

    I feel that so passionately right now.....It's just damn not fair that we cant go and do the things that we want to do...without sufferinf the consequenses....

    I have always been the type of person that has slept a lot but it just has never been good quality sleep...it's still that way now, I hate going to bed every night and I put it off because I know I will wake up the next day to the pain and stiffness every morning, and the crappy sleep I get all night. And when I finally do let myself go to sleep I don't want to get up....
