From this study (11 months ago):
I go to be with many meds, most actually cause sleepiness.6X's out of 10, I fall asleep immediately. Wake up an average or 4X's a night. I go to get a snack, due to a tongue disorder. I have terrible tastes and go for a sweet like a cookie. Get in bed and see cookie in the morning about 60% of the time. (Tragic if no cookies!) Wake up sleepy. Would roll over and fall back to sleep if not for Provigil, with some help from Concerta. Up and awake within 10 minutes. NOW with meds, increased body shaking and falling asleep when standing-pass out etc...Have no idea why all of a sudden. Diagnosis Narcolepsy. (I researched and maybe Oxyplexy?) Due for new sleep study 12/26/2013
I was in three car accidents, one in which my head was turned and I got rear ended from behind that was when all the pain issues started along with the percocet prescription. I didn't intially use the script but later on in the years I started to develop alot more pain after being hit in two more whip lash car accidents in which my car was written off. I had a death of my parent only two months after the last accident and thats when I started to take more pain medication then prescribed. I have always had issues with my moods, I remember having a panic attack after a break-up with my long term boyfriend when I was 25 and going to a walk in clinic and them giving me effexor 75mg which worked great at that time, a little too great since I couldn't cry and eventually tried to overdose when the newest relationship I got myself involved in was to a married man and unhealthy. I kept off meds for sometime after that but found myself more stressed when I was 27 after my long term bf had an affair with my cousin and had two kids with her, I was left with a house in my name that was just bought 9 months prior and no job due to my pain issues. I started on wellbutrin 150xl then and virpo acid, which I didn't feel was working but looking back maybe it was. I have taken wellbturin more then 3 times since and everytime I Was very irritable and had to go off. I tried many other pills and I"m getting so fustrated. I really wish I had some answers, MY biggest complaint is that I"m always tired, which makes me depressed and in more pain. and then I find I'm abusing adderal or other stimulants to stay awake longer and then at night can't sleep. I was hospitalized and went through detox on my own in feb of this year. only to come out of the hospital on celexa 20mg and fight with the current bf over counserlling issues and break up and end up dating for 2 weeks a guy i met in hospital all in which time I relapsed. I am just a whits end. Please any advice would be great
