I am always thirsty and really tired at night but can never sleep.

ok so i am 14 and 5ft2 and 100 lbs. i am always thirsty and really tired at night but can never sleep. I also have to go pee alot. I wear contacts but it seems like at times my eyes get a little blurry but i think that might just be from my contacts. do you think something is wrong ? might I have diabetes?

abhu, all these are something which are really bohtersome, as said in the net book you seem to have diabetes and blurry vision is something which you should see the doctor and set your contacts right. apart from this first see your GP who will first do prelim assessment.

I sleep on my stomach and am told I snore. No gasping for breath, don t wake up frequently during the night, don t feel particularly tired after waking. Am being urged to have a sleep study done to check for apnea. Is apnea a possibility? Should I have the study done?

I m constantly worn out and tired. After eating, I ll always want a nap, and my parents think it s something that I never lost from my baby years. I m a high school senior and when I get home from school everyday I take about a 2- hour nap, which I literally cannot help. I stay on the computer until 3, and then I get sleepy and nap til around 5. I go to bed around 11 every night, and get up around 6. Is it possible that I have a sleeping disorder such as hypersomnia, narcolepsy, etc..?

We have consulted a doctor and she has prescribed Tab Duphaston (10 mg) twice daily. Could you advise us of its purpose and if it has any side effects in long-term. We would really appreciate your advice on this.
