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.

    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.
