Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your current symptoms of excessive sleepiness during daytime, feeling cold, etc.

We need to exclude hypothyroidism, which is caused by deficiency of thyroid hormones. This can be checked in blood tests.

Also, in view of frequent urination, we need to exclude urinary tract infection (UTI), which can be checked in urine examination.

Please discuss these issues with your doctor.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
