yes, iv'e had cortisol checked was told it was normal. last tsh test on may 29, 2013 was .861.
my sleep at night is sporadic; some times ok; some times not always good. iv'e had 3 sleep studies; 1996, found 327 brain awakenings; 1999, leg movement; 2001; combination of both. however, this daily lethargy has only been about last 3 may be 5 years.
some behavior things. iv'e taken most of the modern day sleepings meds with no help. trazadone ; seroquel; and, clonopin help the most. i currently take 50mg of trazadone; 1mg of clonopin; and, some times 75 mg of seroquel. but, iv'e taking these on and off for years with no effect on daily energy level.
not that i've been ever told.
i generally feel ok and get a second wind.
well, i was just curious what would cause what i would consider a pschological effect, i.e. feeling disturbed; somewhat confused; from a nap. past sleep studies have not shown apnea.
why wouldn't current sleep doc do another sleep study. why wouldn't he or various internist; endochronologist do test for chronic fatigue or epstein-bar. thanks, j
Are you saying you currently see a sleep specialist? As for why the chronic fatigue hasn't been considered, I really can't say but it definitely is in the differential and since you don't have a thyroid insufficiency problem or low cortisol problem (and, I forgot to add this but I assume it's been checked--anemia), that would be my next disorder on the list
anemia is normal. i do have a sleep doc same one since 2000. prescribes the trazadone and clonopin.
yes. for about the past year he has prescribed meds. advises going to bed earlier, getting up earlier; something he calls compressing sleep time. hasn't helped.
