The problem is that somtimes when I nod off I get a consious feeling that I am aware of my surroundings, like they are the same what/where I am in, and I hear and see things the same, but know I'm sleeping, and shouldn't be, I panic and even try to shake my head, move, get up, or whatever to wake myself (even Yell in my own head to WAKE-UP!) it is terifying to say the least and I cant control it

So I think I have a sleep disorder but not the common type... I've been going to sleep regularly and eating very healthy and I'm only 16 years old. When I fall asleep sometimes in the middle of the night or maybe even 10-20 minutes after I'm in a deep sleep I will wake up but my body won't and I will be trying to wake up myself up but I can't? I hope this makes sense to you cause it doesn't to me ?! Help!

My son has the factor xii missing in his blood, all the health professionals we've spoken too say it's not a problem, however my son does suffer badly with constant exhaustion and irritability. He also has a sleep disorder (undiagnosed) which makes him need a lot more sleep than average (around 10 - 12). My son was considerably premature at birth and under weight but has been relatively normal in size since he was 5 years old, he is now 31, average hight and weight. Could the missing clotting factor play a part in his condition or it this just co-incidental?

doctor1 MD

Hi,
Factor 12 deficiency has no correlation with exhaustion and irritability. Factor 12 deficiency is totally asymptomatic and also it doesn't lead to bleeding. I can assure you about this.
I hope this has helped you.
If you do not have any clarification, you can close the discussion and rate the...
