What are these symptoms of drowsiness and feeling weak ?

Hello doc, I always feel very dull and weak during my duty hours. I m working as a chemist in a paper industry. My height is 5- 10 ft and body weight is 64 kgs. Every time I have my food, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, I feel heavy as if my legs are not able to carry the body weight and feel very drowsy. Kindly suggest some remedies.

Hello Pramodh,

What I see in your query is your muscles could be weak, though ideal weight for your height is around 55-60 kilos you also have to work on building lean muscle mass. That you can achieve by doing some cardiovascular training and weight training in any form of activities viz.. gymming/ cycling/ Swimming/ Yoga in dynamic form etc...

Also you have to eat a very nutritious food which will give you strength specifically Proteins.Go more on fluids.

Work on your stress by doing Pranayama/Self-help techniques such as Deep muscular relaxation techniques regularly.
Identify the reasons for your Stress at work and try to help yourself by discussing them with your managers/ colleagues.

My mom has been staying with me from out of town for 3 weeks. Her symptoms are: not being able to stay awake, legs have become weak and unable to hold her up, her memory has gotten much worse and she can t think of words to say or says the wrong word a lot. She is 80 years old and has bad knees--both need to be replaced but we don t feel she can do therapy. She was getting around slowly at home, but since here I have to shower her, help her up from chairs, help her walk, etc. It seems to have come on so suddenly.

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
