I've been struggling with daytime sleepiness for years now and in the last 6 months, it's gotten so bad to the point where i struggle with anything. The doctors always chalked it up to stress which i always felt wasn't right.
I decided to webcam my sleep 2 nights ago and sure enough, every 20-40 seconds, i move my feet/legs/hips/fingers hundreds of times. Decided to do it again last night with the same results, including one point where my head suddenly jolts and i wake up (although i can't remember this).
This could explain so many of the problems I've been having over the years including irritability and increased anxiety. I'm going to show my GP the footage tomorrow but what is the prognosis for this? I know it's a lifelong condition but I'm only 25. I've read about medications but it seems they wear off after a while.
Any help and advice would be appreciated
