Could be. Call your doctor. Rest now!

Hi Monica!

I'm so sorry this is happening to you. First off...try to relax. This is treatable so no need to worry so much. Then first thing in the morning call your doc and tell them you need an appointment ASAP. If need be tell them you are falling asleep at the wheel and need help now! If you do have to drive or are responsible for others...like children or others who rely on you for their safety...then being this sleeping is serious. I take pain medications and found that I was getting sleepy when I had to drive to work. One day I nodded off at a stop light and that was it for me! I went to my doc and he prescirbed Provigil which works wonderfully.

Now, this is me I'm talking about and the Provigil does work but, just like any other medicine, it's not for everyone. Plus your doc needs to find the cause of your fatigue. It could be anemia and some extra iron will do it. Might be stress...sleepiness is a common side effect of stress. Or it might be Fibro, CFS, narcolepsy, or whatever...but it's not life threatening. Please let us know what you find out from you doc...OK?

I forgot to say I do take providgle or whatever it is to stay awake. I know my doctor will not be in early but I am having my husband take a half day to get me to the doctors. 

 

Thanks so much for your replys
