I am a 17 year old homeschooled(I had to get in to homeschool cuz of health problems)(fell asleep in every class)
My sleep cycle is extreamly irregular. For example: I'll sleep for a few days straight then go a day and night with no sleep then next week . I'm always tired but sometimes I just can't sleep. I sleep a whole lot but its very irregular no pattern whatsoever (I know I had a sleep log). I have clinical depression and anxiety problems, it took awhile to find a drug that workedI'm now on (Zoloft). I can now stand to live at least, and I'm not so anxious like I used to be, they thought that would fix the sleeping, but it didn't. I feel better but I'm still sleeping like crazy. When I do sleep its practically uncontrolable. I get terrible headaches that won't go away till I sleep. I feel very confused all the time and I am slow to remember things, I didnt used to be like this, but this has been getting worse over the course of two years or three years; different problems will just pop up. I had many blood tests, I've had an endoscopy, barium swallow, EKG, . heres the list of my problems in order of how badly they affect my life:
*sleeping too much and irregularly
* I had to quit the Track team (I loved Track)due to weight loss which was caused by excessive vomiting when I run (I used to be an awesome runner this vomiting while running started happening in 10th grade and I was in PERFECT SHAPE when this problem popped up(I had been running for years w/out this problem)) so the outta shape reason didnt fit.
*confusion and memory problems
*still have some problems with depression but much better
* random joint pain(like knee and hip and fingers)
* I feel like I'm going insane
* horrible chest pain (acid reflux I think)
*inablilty to concentrate
