My husband has an autoimmune disorder (VGKC Antibody Syndrome). Our most recent crisis is that he seems unable to stay awake. Doctors have done the "musical chairs" thing to see if it is meds related, but it doesn't seem to be, so must be the disorder.
Here is the problem: sitting, standing or leaning on his cain he dozes off and wham! There he goes. He is covered with scrapes, bruises, broke his nose, etc. and we are becoming really fearful of the possible injuries. I know a lot of you would recommend he stay in bed, wheelchair, etc., but the problem is he will fall off the bed, out of the chair or just while standing as he stands up to walk across the room and down he goes.
