    I've found myself dozing off the past few days while I'm in the car (my husband's driving) and while I'm watching TV. But the worst was today at work. I was typing and found myself nodding off. I've NEVER had this happen! Is this normal with FMS? I can't take much more of this. What should I do? I don't know if I should call my doctor or what. Please, need some advice!

    It unfortunatly is normal for us.
    Check when you take your meds/herbs. It might be a reaction to them. Sometimes I have to lay down or else I feel I'll pass out.
    It could be hypoglycemia, so check the food you're eating and how long after eating this happens.
    It can be anemia.
    It can be movement or how much pain you're in. Pain causes us to use energy.
    You have to be a detective.
    Good luck. Love, Selma

    It's totally normal for me...Annette...
    I'm dxed with FM and CFS. Sometimes I can not hold my eyelids open, or even hold my head up.

    While this could be normal fatigue for someone with our illnesses, new symptoms should always be checked out.
