strange happenings

Postby thebryans » Fri May 13, 2011 1:08 am

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are all as well as can be,
Wanted to know if anyone is having these strange feelings, my hubby has said during the last few weeks I can be talking to him or watching tv, or even eating and I suddenly just fall asleep for a few minutes,
I do feel mega exhausted of late, even when I do get 8hrs, which is not often, but I do wake numerous times in the night due to this irregular heartbeat, and the feeling I am gonna stop breathing,
The doc put me on beta blockers, ( propananol 40mg 3times a day ) plus my array of other meds,
citalaphram 40mg
baclofen 10mg 3 times a day
pregabalin 75mg 2 times a day,
Etoricoxib 30mg once a day
and 8 paracetamol
Any advice would be great,
soft :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: to everyone
loraine.

Loraine, this sounds like it's something that really needs to be investigated by a doc, so your first port of call need to be your GP as there could be a number of reasons for it. I often feel like I'm falling asleep and do nod off a lot, but I've never had it happen while I'm eating, it's usually when I'm sat in the armchair or on the sofa. Not much help I'm afraid :facepalm: :facepalm:

It might be an idea to see if DH or someone else can keep a record of when it happens, the things you were doing just before it happens, if you do anything while you're "sleeping" etc, it might help with identifying what is causing it.

hi Lorraine
agree with flup and good idea to keep a diary as to what and when it happens
go see your gp and take hubby with you as he is the one that is seeing it happen

Hiya, :wave:
thanks to everyone for your thoughts, and help,
Yes I am goint to see the doc, as I have no energy at all, and hubby says there must be something wrong as I am off my food which is not like me lol, as I love my food,
Dont think its helping either as we moved house at xmas for my health, and now we seem to have the neighbours from hell, :facepalm: who were argueing and playing music till 4am again this morning, and because its a private house next door the council wont help, during the last few weeks have been making so much noise and using terrible language, ( her daughter is a druggie ) which isnt good when my step kids or grandchildren are here.
So now wish we hadnt bothered to move, as am now feeling 100% worse. Sorry to waffle on, I hate being miserable,
soft hugs to you all :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: xxxxx

Sorry to hear your neighbours are causing you to feel worse, can you not use the noisy neighbour scheme, cant remember the name of it (fibrofog) but its used to stop neighbours from hell, it doesnt matter whether they are private or council. :fingerscrossed: you can get something sorted :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Hi
Yes i thought you could still complain about your noisy neighbours private or not, find out from CAB. :hugs: Is it not law now that when you sell your house the seller must let the buyers know about noisy neighbours :?:
Must be horrid for you. :hugs:

I go through stages where i am so tired i have fallen asleep talking to my kids.
A while back i was having lunch with friends and it happened there :oops: :oops: :roll:
My OH does it everyday. :roll:

Hi. I go thru days quite often when I just fall asleep suddenly. More recently I fell asleep at a committee meeting and again at a spinning class!! I do get very tired eating sometimes, I just stop eating as it's so much effort. It's not my meds as I was like it before I had them, but my doc does think it is fibro related. I can tolerate the pain of fibro sometimes, but the tiredness is something I can't do anything about. Even worse it just comes on so suddenly without warning. I'll be out shopping and then halfway round the supermarket I will be just so tired I'll just give up and leave as I simply can't do it. I told my gp that if it was socially acceptable I'd just curl up and sleep where I am it's that bad! I do fall asleep while talking sometimes too, the kids and OH say I sound like a half asleep drunk! Anyway take care. Cherry :hugs: :blowkiss:

Hi all

Sorry about the neighbour situation - we really need to move as house we are renting is 3 Storey and it kills me and the kids as I'm always saying 'cn someone do me a favour'? The pipe up 'is it in your room'? Which is on the top floor! Lol so much more fun when they went for the 'I'll time you' trick!! I'm so scared of moving at the thought of having disruptive neighbours as I get so angry these days just with the wind howling and driving me mad!

I too fall asleep mid activities - on the phone (how rude), in the first min of a film with the kids and mid conversation that also turns into a drunken muffle then gone! I actually looked up Narcolepsy the other day as it is starting to drive me mad, but decided not, think it's poor sleep, meds & Fibro fatigue - oh and it is always much worse during the wrong time of the month so been taking Iron as have a history of anemia.

Gonna check it out with the Dr - that said it's 2 in the morning and 'I'm Wide Awake'!!

Good luck and if you get any answers keep us posted x

Hugs xxx

Hi All. :facepalm:

yes same here wide awake, lol pity I dont feel like this during the day, today I nodded off like you said on the phone to the council, god how embarassing. had to ring back and say sorry, lol bet the woman thought I was a nutter.

Was ringing the council re the noise from next door, didnt get much joy :banghead: But dont think they were amused when I told them ok, if you wont deal with it I will, :swear1: wonder how they will feel with my crutch up their rear end, :lol: :clap:

I took a council exchange to move here so am really smegged off with the girl I swapped with as she knew I was ill and can stand noise, well just hope she dont ever feel like we do. So dont know what to do, have even thought of trying to get a swap for a 2 bed flat in a quiet place with more of the elderly sector, but most wont let me take my dog, and if she dont go I wont, she has only spent 7days without me in the last 15yrs,

Anyhow I hope you all have had a good day, and not suffered to much???
Hey ho tomorrow is another day,

love & soft :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Hope a flat or another house comes up where you can take your dog. :hugs:

Hiya Shaz,

Don't fall off your chair laughing but she has just had a dx of fibro so she of all people should understand, but hey ho they just go their own merry way not caring who they upset. :swear1:
But like we say what goes around comes around, and with luck she may sell it soon, then just hope we get good neighbours and not students renting as we are only 2 miles from the local uni.
Anyhow I am intending to go out on sat night to my brothers 50th birthday and try to enjoy myself, :wine: but I wont be drinking I only drink J2O more fun watching others get drunk and make fools of themselves,
BIG soft :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Well been to the doctors today, and had to see another doc as mine was dealing with an emergency,

What a nice young man, he listened without any remarks, read all my recent notes etc, and discussed my problems before examining me,

the dizzy spells are caused by an ear infection so on ear drops,

the sleep thing he says from what both me and OH told him sounds like I have sleep apena, I do know I stop breathing in the night as it wakes me up when I start gasping, and Carls noticed it as well, so he says he will want me to see a specialist. so thats another damn problem.

The other good thing is he has given me tramadol for the pain as last night I couldnt lay down so sat in the kitchan all night,

So fingers crossed they might help. just means now all together I take 21 tablets a day minimum, and could even be 23 lol I will start rattling soon,

Sometimes think seeing a new doc is a good think as they take a fresh look and can pick up on other things.

The other good thing is he has said that its a good case if I got for esa test as cant work with sleep apena. as not competant enough. felt a right tit as couldnt think what he meant, must have been having a fuzzy fog time,

Sorry for waffling on. a big thanks to all who gave advice, big soft :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: & :blowkiss: :blowkiss:

Loraine,

PS a big thankyou to this site as without you all I dont know what I would do
