I had a sleep study done, thispast Satruday due to severe fatigue that has plagued me for a few years and has gotten really bad in the last few months.
Even after cups of coffee, I am falling asleep. Findingmyself closing my eyes while I'm driving has scared the life out of me!! I can be sitting and watching tv and get the cramps and creepy crawlies, then I have t oget up and walk or suffer in pain. I have had to get out of bed and walk for relief. How am I so sleepy? The sleep study was done to check for apnea, but, the nurse said that there was little obstruction going on that she couldsee, but, a lot of leg movement and waking up when that is happening.
Does anyone else have such horrible fatigue from RLS?
I was told to make an appointment with my primary care doctor to discuss the study, but, the nurse said that I need to to tell the doctor about noted RLS as the pulmonologist will not discuss it as the apnea is his concern. Is there a cure or a good treatment that I can ask about?
Thank you for any help that you can give me. I'm tired of my life being so affected by this stuff! I never want to do anyhing because I am so sleepy all the time. I just want to sleep!!
