Customer Question

I am constantly tired, unalert, unfocused, and cant think. I go through stages all day and it only feels like I am ok for a couple hours a day. I get up in the morning and I just want to (and sometimes do) go right back to sleep.

Reply to Doctor_Shiv(M.D)'s Post:

I dont know about my blood sugar. My life is fairly stressful, I was wondering if I was depressed but I dont know its different from day to day. I am a 23 yr old male. No past medical conditions and no investigations done. Every time I run this stuff by my father he thinks I am just a hypochondriac. The truth is it is like I am in this state that I cant get out of. Sometimes it is all I can do but just lay down and that is not like me. My blood pressure and pulse are both good.

The exact cause can not be find only by symptoms, You need certain blood work to evaluate the condition.

You need- CBC,Blood sugar , Thyroid levels checkup, RFT.

    Your symptoms are highly suggestive of a possible sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.

    In addition to the tests that the other expert suggested, you may want to discuss the option of having a sleep study done to determine if you have this easily treated condition.

    I have had at least a dozen of my patient treated for sleep apnea with REMARKABLE improvement in their quality of life.
