Have you talked about this problem with your family doctors?
I have got hypothyriodism
Are you on regular medications for that?
but even before I had this problem ,I had such symptoms
Let me brief you.
Acute symptoms of drowsiness and sleepinenss is generally secondary to some minor infections. However the causes are plenty when symptoms are lasting for more than a year.
It is going to be extremely difficult for me to figure out the close causes without an opportunity to physically examine and evaluate you.
Since you listed hypothyroidism in your past medical illness, this needs to be rechecked and treated well first.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism last for long duration, so there is no surprise why you were diagnosed recently when symptoms were for years.
Are you following?
Besides, testing TSH levels for hypothyroid; I would also urge you to get your hemoglobin and blood sugar checked.
If the tests reveal normal reports, then you need to visit your doctor for clinical examination.
He/she can perform a detailed clinical as well as mental assessment to determine the cause of your symptom.
Have you followed?
Do you have any questions?
I will visit my doctor and get it checked with her
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
