Ok this all started a year ago. I woke up one morning after a full nights sleep and felt like I haddn't slept at all I went to work kept falling asleep while driving got to work was barely awake standing up they sent me on break slept on break sent me home early slept in my car woke up kept trying to fall asleep on the road just across town got home fed me and my two kids went to sleep woke up when it was time for kids to go to bed and then slept all night.
Ok this went on for three days and on the third day I was confused and dissorianted (sp) went to the er got sent home said need to get sleep
Ok I did this routine of mine for four to five days stait then I would have a day where I was awake for half or sometimes I got lucky and it would last all day.
On my day off I slept all day
I lost weight 27 pounds (I am overweight) without eating any different. My doc put me through a ton of tests
Finally he ran a test on my cortisal levels just a morning am drawing of blood not the good adisson's test. They were low
I got put on the flornef and hydrocortisone. And I was awake again!
I thought I was all fixed
but no I started getting tremors in my hands head and sometimes my legs. I also have a hard time walking when this happens and often fall. this happend about for a week out of every two months.
Now it is about twice a week I go through this.
I got an MRI of my brain and it was normal i went to a neorolagist the same one my son sees for his seizures and he looked at my file and said oh you have a history of anxiety so I went from clonazapam to valium. Back on lexapro and Welbutrin.
It didn't help just got worse over time. I even have them in my sleep and I found out my Brother has mystery undiagnosised tremors. He lives in Florida I am in Kansas. He went to the er only once and they said it was from him smokeing pot. He hasn't seen a doc sence he just deals with them.
I don't smoke pot, I hardly ever drink the only drugs I take are the ones the doc writes me.
I have no clue what is going on. I have been to the ER several times and my docter.
I see an endocronolagist (big sp) next month.
Anyone have a clue what is going on?
I am 31 overweight but lossing it (on purposs this time) I have two bulging disks in my spine
my doc has me on: Lexapro, welbutrin, valium, tylonal 3, Hydrocortisone, flornef, I think that is it.
