I'm very worried that I may have narcolepsy.

Over the past 3 weeks I have had my usual amount of sleep each night (between 7 and 9 hours) I'm not under any stress and I am the happiest ive ever been.

Whilst at work I have been losing control of my muscles, sending emails i have no recollection or writing, i feel as though I'm going cross eyed and then I fall asleep.

Does anyone know of any other reasons for this? & What can I do about it?

I'm currently taking fluoxitine for depression and iron tablets to keep on top of my low iron count which is slowly picking up.

Help would be appreciated, thank you.

@LDW2205,
What does you doctor say about this?. With such symptoms, if it were me, I'd be seeing a doctor ASAP.

Furthermore, aren't you are the same person who had symptoms of your hair falling out a little while ago. How is that working out?


FWIW, here is a link to info about the side-effects of that medication:

@Ragman,
I was put on a higher dosage iron tablet and my hair has started coming back, I couldn't be happier.

With regards to this sleeping issue, after reviewing the side effects I think I will definitely go back to my doctors... May be they aren't suiting me!!
