For the past three months I have been suffering from worsening insomnia. I fall asleep with great difficulty. I used to get a light fragmented sleep, where I wake up several times and have many dreams. In fact do not even know if I have fallen asleep or not. I just know that time has passed by looking at the clock. I am also having muscle twitches all over my body; I can see the muscles moving. I sweat a lot in armpits and feet. I am having memory and attention problems as well. My personality seems to have changed and I cannot focus most of the time. I have been aggressively searching up symptoms of fatal insomnia and I am so scared that I might have it. I am just 26 years old and I have no family history of this disease. Are there people who had these symptoms and survived? I need some assurance as I am really worried. I went to my doctor and he only prescribed sleeping pills. Please help me out. I feel tired and fatigued throughout the day.
