I'm never tired anymore!
« on: April 08, 2014, 09:02:12 AM »
I am really at a loss as to what is causing this, but I think I may have an idea.  I have been having trouble sleeping for about 9 days now.  I would mainly have trouble falling asleep and be able to stay asleep.  Well now it's BOTH - trouble falling asleep and staying asleep.  I'm concerned I have Sporadic Fatal Insomnia.  I am worried because I'm not tired, no matter how much sleep I get.  Last night for example, I fell asleep finally at 10:45, but got up at around 4:30 this morning.  I'm not exhausted at all, and the same thing happened the night before.

But, I'm not tired at all and that's how this whole thing started.  It would be 11:30 at night and I would be wide awake, and no matter how much sleep I got I would not be tired.  I heard that this can be a symptom of SFI because the part of your brain the controls sleep is destroyed.  :(

I'm only 20, and I know that it's rare.  However, I feel like I'll be a scientific anomaly and be the one person that has it at a young age.

From what I know only a few select families have the disorder.

A few days ago I was wide-awake for a good 30~ hours and it freaked me out. I made myself fall asleep anyway and I'm sleeping fine now. I've read stress can cause this insomnia and alertness.

If anything is wrong it's very unlikely to be SFI. There are dozens of sleep disorders.

As long as you are sleeping, insomnia is not an issue. The amount you are sleeping is adequate. I don't go to bed until 5 AM, and I wake up at 9.

I just worry...I mean my eyes aren't tired at night like normal.

I'm sitting in my room right now after getting 5 hours of sleep last night, and I don't feel tired at all.  I saw the FFI video about the music teacher Michael Corke from Chicago.  I am horrified by what happened to him - in the sense that it is a completely unreal thing to happen to someone.  I am so scared it will happen to me.  I know he had FFI and not SFI, but I suppose the chance is there and that's what worries me to no end.

Has anyone from your family died of it? SFI and FFI are both genetic.
