I am a 46 year old female, who weighs 170 lbs and is 5.4 feet tall. I have symptoms of chronic fatigue. I had a sleep study recently that showed I have intrusion in every stage of sleep, and I have sleep fragmentation that occurs 14+ times an hour. My sleep doctor did not seem to think this would make me tired. He said the body has a way of recovering from that and getting enough sleep. I was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia without known cause to my fatigue.
I have been tracking my sleep with a fitness watch. When I fall asleep, which does not take long, I enter stage 3, that is, slow wave sleep, within 5 to 10 minutes. Can going into a deep sleep that quickly indicates a problem or contributes to fatigue? I also will fully wake up during the night (go to the bathroom) but go back to sleep and hit REM within five minutes. I heard that is normal during the night, right?

Thank you doctor,
Does the SWS indicate an issue as well or is it normal to go into that so quickly after falling asleep? Do you know what prescription medications will treat spontaneous arousals?
