Is It Normal To Fall Into A Deep Sleep In The Afternoon And Be Almost Incoherent When You Try To Wake Up? See Additional Details
A MyFibroTeam Member asked a question 💭

Some days I fall asleep on the couch and my Mom texted me, I heard the text but went to respond and it came out a partial sentence and then just gibberish, just random letters. I tried again and the same thing happened, the third time I just stopped mid sentence. Does this have anything to do with my Fibro? A friend said it's called aphasia, but isn't that just having a stroke? I don't think it's that. Weird.
