Does anyone have sleep prpblems that they attribute to MS?
I have had sleep problems on and off for as long as I can remember but more recently they are pretty constant. Firstly I have no problem getting to sleep but staying asleep is another thing entirely! I can wake up the first time as soon as 30 mins after I have gone to bed! My main problem though is what I call ‘waking dreams!’ Numerous times throughout the night I ‘wake up’ but am obviously still in a dream state. I look around the bedroom trying to make sense of ‘something that has changed’-ie the colour of the wardrobe looks different or the shape of the mirror-(last week I opened all the wardrobe doors as I was convinced they had ‘changed’) Sometimes I look for ‘the control panel for the air conditioning’ (there is no such thing-we don’t have air conditioning!) I have even searched the bedside table drawers for the tablets that I have forgotten to take for weeks (no they don’t exist) Last night I was expecting someone to come and replace the flooring in my bedroom so kept having to feel the floor to see if they had been yet!!!
Every time I feel like I am awake (I think my eyes are open becuase what I can see plays such a big part) and I am desperately trying to dredge my mind for the information that I need but of course the information doesn’t exist. It is driving me potty, Does anyone have anything similar? Has it been attributed to MS and have you found anything to stop it happening or help?
