I called my neuro and my psych. Haven't heard back from neuro but psych's nurse said that he'd be glad to send me. The place he plans to send me happens to be close afterall but tests for many many things, including seizures, narcolepsy, apnea and so many that she finally quit reading them all. I will spend the night and then the next day taking naps while they watch. They did wish to know how long the dryness in my mouth had been going on and to the best of my knowlege a year or a little more. Id use dry mouth gum and it seemed to help some.
I'm so glad i didn't wait any longer to post this. I'm equally as happy that you all responded supportively.
Yesterday an eye doctor called and wanted me to come in, once i explained my sleep study coming up they redecided we should wait (as i plan on doing with all driving opportunities).
You really dont realize how much you drive even if its small distances.
There is one thing i find odd though. It wouldn't happen without any warning with one exception...if i got in my car. My eyes would begin to bounce (nystagmus type) and then the drowsy would hit. Makes me wonder if this isnt a bit of what they are talking about when they mention seizures being brought on by blinking lights. A bit different for sure but still odd that it was so on schedule with driving. The evokeds did show that i see things about 1/2 of a second after the normal person would. That in itself could be a problem with driving. But was never empahsized when I was told that.
I know alot of things we discuss such as the one i just mentioned are not MS related. However, it does make me think like my eye doc when he says "maybe ms brings things that are dormant to the surface in alot of persons". I find that alot of what was to be hereditary or dormant does get a slight kick with attacks.
Anyway I will be at the sleep study the first monday of march. Please pray for me and honestly I'm not near as scared. Id rather know than to feel that coma ( i know its not a coma) feeling. Id rather it be called anything than to be another limbo thing. We've all had enough limbo's.
Every day brings us closer to what we reach for .........in all things.
