Hi there.yesi do as if someone pulled my plug out or taken my batteries out.I can't be in the middle of a conversation and can't remember what I was saying n just need to sleep.

Have you been diagnosed with M.E? If not get tested.

I started about a month ago but I actually don't take it every day even though he told me I could, he being my pain management doctor. It works quite well for me on the days that I am able to take it. If I'm having a super bad fibro day I don't think much of anything works

I have had that happen. I would be discussing serious stuff with my husband and just pass straight out, like someone shut the main power grid off. Had issues like this all my life. Found out I have narcolepsy after having a sleep study done. I passed out at the wheel with my daughter in the car going through a construction zone. That's when I called my pc and demanded a sleep study.
