Feeling tired and sleepy. Dizziness after eating, nausea. Taking microgynon. Not pregnant
Have been feeling excessively tired, despite apparently sleeping well, for a couple of weeks. I have to keep stopping during even short drives as I nearly fall asleep - even in the middle of the day. It seems to be worse after eating and I often feel dizzy after eating. My limbs are heavy. Am also intermittently nauseous but not actually vomiting . I take microgynon30 and have been bleeding (from mid-cycle) for nearly 2 weeks and am now just starting my pill-less week. I am not pregnant (negative test yesterday). I m not particularly stressed atte moment.
Hello and thank you for your query
I would suggest you to get your thyroid function tests done.
Take some rest after taking meals.
Avoid oily and fatty food especially at dinner.
Have light and nutririous food.
Hope to hear from you.
