Active in athletics, feel more tired, have weakness in legs, occasional hand tremors, hard time memorizing, double vision. Cause?

Brett Brachmann, aged 22 is a senior in college. He’s majoring in chemistry. Brett has always been active in athletics. He played basketball, soccer, and tennis in high school. He enjoys running and competing in road races. Brett has come to your office because lately he has felt a bit more tired than usual and has felt some weakness in his legs. Twice this past month during a run, the toe of his shoe caught the road and he fell and skinned himself up. He has noticed an occasional but worrisome hand tremor and he doesn’t feel like his handwriting is as neat as it once was. He isn’t sure, if it’s just stress of advanced physical chemistry, but he feels he’s having a harder time remembering things for school. What really made him decide to come to see you was that he began seeing double the other day while studying with his girlfriend.

We understand your concerns

You don't have to worry. Several people who are active in athletics have such problems. These problems arise out of anxiety and you feel that the tiredness you feel after all that physical activities are due to physical weakness.
At age 22, you are as fit as you can. As you are active. you are clear of physical problems. Now you can have food rich in nutrients which will help you re energize after every physical activity session.
Good luck.
