Hi,
Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
Do not panic.
Please state your height in cm and weight in kg.
Lethargy can be due to several causes.
It can be due to obesity,anemia,hypothyroidism,electrolyte abnormalities and sometimes depression.
In the meantime take plenty of rehydrating fluids,de-stress yourself and check your hemoglobin and thyroid levels.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
