    The past month ot two off and on I have been feeling extremely drowsy while driving to work. To the point where I can barely keep my eyes open. My husband and I work together but drive separately due to different schedules. Has this ever happened to anyone before? It just came out of the blue. I had a sleep apnea test a few months back that came back ok. Suggestions please! I'm @ bit scared.

    You could be waking up multiple times each night, and not even know about it. Do you snore?

    Really? You drink it before you drive? My commute is only about 30 mins. Im wondering if it's because its's dark.

    Yeah, Im pretty sure I do. Not a very great sleeper. And I do snore. That's why I got the sleep apnea test. I was surprised it came back negative.

    I might have to try that. I'm scared driving. I have to dart my eyes around constantly to help.

    If you feel you are getting drowsy, hold your breath as long as you can and let it out slowly. This will increase your heart rate making you more alert.

    I'm glad you come to the shed for medical advise. Most members are well versed with treating addiction based illnesses, but don't you worry, you've come to the right place. It's one of two things. 1) you're extremely sleepy or 2) you have a bad heart. Get yourself some more sleep and have a stress test done asap.

    On a long boring trip when my eyes start to close I holler as loud as I can. Repeat this a few times and your mind learns that when it starts falling asleep, its gonna get yelled at. It works!
