I'm sorry for posting again, but I have yet another worry. I now believe that I have Sporadic Fatal Insomnia. I got about 7.5 hours of sleep on Saturday night, although I fell asleep at around 12:00 a.m. and got up at around 7:15-7:30. Anyway, last night though worried me because I couldn't fall asleep until around 1:30, and got up at around 6:00-6:15 this morning.
I have a headache now, and my heart rate feels raised and I feel anxious. I had this fear about 2 years ago, and it was surfacing and going away during that time. I am terrified because I also suddenly have had pretty bad memory troubles and I just feel off. I am still able to hold a conversation, but I don't feel 100%. I did read an article about a teenager developing this disease (which was posted by someone on this forum), and that scares me - since I'm 20. I have read the stories about the people who have had this and I would rather just not go through it. I'm scared, worried and anxious altogether...please help.
