Yes, Hello - I am looking for a doctor in or near Pittsburgh who is knowledgable about sever idiopathic hypersomnia. It is so bad for me that I don't know how I will cope even another day of this. Here it is 1:00 in the afternoon and I am still so groggy and drunk feeling, and my eyes just go grey like I am not even here. I have had 4 sleep studies and have an MSLT of 2.5 minutes. Thank you. XXXXXXX I will even travel anywhere in the world to seek help if there is someone who knows about this situation. thanks again.
