I am so suprised that I am not alone with this. It all started in feb, I am a cna and was always used to doing 16 hr days. Then in feb I started getting really tiered and my neck started to hurt. It was like I had a bowling ball on my neck. I went from doing 16 hour days to maybe 5 hours I was exhausted. It seemed like maybe I had a infection, so I went to a Ear, Nose and Throat Dr. He said there wasn't anything wrong as far as he was concerned. So I went to a neurologist. All my scans came back ok but my blood levels for a auto immune deficence was low. Meaning some thing was wrong but said it was undetermined.. He put me on Provigil, and told me to get a GP. I just started taking the Provigil yesterday and praise the lord. I have not felt this normal in months. I can't wait to go back to work! :-D Mary from wis

Hi Mary. It is a blessing if they don't think you have ALS.

Good for you Mary! But one dose of Provigil and you are all better! That is wonderful. Will google that med when I get off of forum tonight, as I am unaware of what the med is for.

Keep up the good work!
