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.
