I feel drowsy and lazy all the day and tired and fatigue at the end of the day. If I speak more for some time then I feel that my head is heavy, restless and confused. And there is stiffness in my right arm, especially in my fingers. In morning when i get up, my hand is stiff and when I feel pain when I make shape of punch with my hand. So please kindly help me in diagonosing my problem. Thank you.
