ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
History of other is infertility and seizure disorder since birth. Major symptom falling asleep during daily activities. My doctor has tried several amphetimine medications such as Adderall, Vyvanse, and Ritalin. I still fight sleep during the day, and can easily sleep until after 3pm. I go to sleep at night early trying to achieve enough sleep, but I am constantly waking up several times during the night. But when I sleep during the day I sleep heavier and achieve dream state. I have hypothyroidism, not sure if this factors in or not. I am sleeping my days away and unable to perform daily living activities. This has caused my home to become backed up with undone chores and full of dirty laundry. I have been on disability since 2012, because of bipolar disorder. I haven't done any sleep tests yet, I have missed my two or three scheduled appointments because of oversleeping. This problem has turned my life upside down. Years ago I had energy to keep my house clean, cook, shop, go to doctor appointments without cancelling at the last minute. I was active and exercised. I used to suffer with hyperthyroidism, but in 2014 my thyroid slowed down and turned to hypothyroidism. I am on meds for that, but not sure if dose is high enough. I have complained to my endocrinologist about the excess sleeping, but he seems unconcerned. My psychiatrist is concerned and has been trying to help with medications that don't seem to work. I also have a history of sexual abuse as a 3 year old. I feel like my life is passing me by. I have no ambition and feel depressed most of the time. Please help, any information I can get would help.
