Sleep Sleep Sleep

Hello,

Wondering if you could all advise please? My wife was DX a year and a half ago. Neuro is saying PPMS. She fell asleep at 9pm last night and has been awake for a total of 2hrs 40 mins in short periods since.

I am really worried as this can’t be ‘right’ can it???

Any advice gratefully recieved!

Thank you

I have rrms so not quite the same, but I can sleep a lot, and last relapse I slept almost all the time. Even now, when I’m at my mildest, I often need a couple of hours sleep in the afternoon. Otherwise, it can be medication if she’s on any - I know if I take Gabapentin I won’t be awake much.

Just agreeing with Zedsee. With the humidity as bad as it has been then us MSers can sleep a lot. I have SPMS and on a bad day I can sleep for hours. Also, Gabapentin is a nightmare to take as it knocks you out.

Hope she picks up soon.

Hi

Just wondered how your wife is today?

Hi, yeh extra sleep is common for MS folks.

But there are meds which may help. Ask your wife if she could have a chat with her MS nurse, eh?
