Sometime during the day I feel like I need to take a nap. No big deal. But then when I lie down I enter into a half sleep state and a major increase in flu-like symptoms. The symptoms are so bad I feel like I have experienced a major relapse, and will need a daily caregiver again. A few hours go by and it passes. I get up and I'm back to my previous lower level of symptoms. The only thing that keeps this from being really scary is it's happened so often, I just tell myself it's not a real relapse. Do any of you get routine variation of symptoms this way. This has nothing to do with stress or exertion. It seems to be something I go through a few times a week. It doesn't aways occur at the same time of day.
