  1. Sleep Problem

    I have a sleeping problem. During the day I fall into a deep sleep where I cannot be awakened. I have slept through breakfast, lunch and dinner, doctor appointments etc. I have slept for 35 hours straight. I feel drugged . I can't prevent it from happening. I hear people trying to get me up but I cannot move or keep my eyes open. I don't get any meds when I am in this deep sleep. I am was taking 2 Rytary [23.75-95mg each] 7 to 8 times a day [every 2 1/2 hrs ] starting at 5 am and ending at 10 pm. I was taking Requip HCL 0.5mg along with the Rytary (7 times a day). A nurse at the NPF suggested it may be the Requip..so I have cut it down to 3x a day. That seems to have helped but i still have the problem. Some days are better than others. I am also experiencing moments of brain fog and have memory loss. I can't remember what day it is or what happened yesterday. AND then there are moments like this. When I feel perfectly normal and am capable of writing this. Is all of this part of the disease? I am very worried about the fact that I cannot be awakened
