  • Help!! Sleep disorder after dialysis.

    Have been happening for 5 years or so, but now it is periodically. Thought it was psychological at first, but a Psychologist in consultation referred me to a Neurologist. I get real weak after dialysis and sleepy. When waking up, I am confused, screaming and hollering, being mean to my wife, etc. This episode lasts from 10 to 30 minutes, and then I wake up, not really remembering anything. It happens after almost every treatment now. I am beginning to despise treatment and being scared to sleep. My Neurologist found everything normal, but only tested me when I was awake. He says it not a sleep disorder. I don't know what to do. I am on dialysis TUESDAY, THURSDAY, SATURDAYat 4 hours each time.
