    Hi, anyone else have problems staying awake in the evening? whatever I try, nothing seems to work..I can fall asleep trying to read my emails, trying to watch tv...its like someones got a remote control to my brain..I've got no control over it, its driving me nuts...I can fall asleep holding a cuppa, having my dinner sometimes.Anyone know of a suppliment or something (not cafiene) that might help? My gp claims to to be be a cfs/me specialist, but shes not up to much as I've told her about this before, but nothing...Anyone any ideas?
    Cheers Rich

    Have you done a sleep study? How do you sleep at night? Falling asleep during the day like that is a symptom of disturbed sleep or sleep apnea. But you could also just not be sleeping well due to CFS which I suspect is the case for all of us.

    as the other person stated a sleep study is a good thing..the doctor has suggested it for me but i cant afford it...but i have insomnai...but no matter if im up days and nights in a row and then sleep a few hours at night its a cycle i hate...but im foggy in the brain and sleepy all day short term memory getting worse too...but i will be so tired i will feel like im about to die but cant actaully fall asleep it makes no sense...

    im constanlty in pain and fatigue been told its from the fibro/cfs...hope you get some help and some sleep
