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.

Hello, I am 40, male, non-smoker, 6ft tall and weighing 194lbs. I ve been losing weight for the past 5 months. In March I went to my cardiologist to have my heart checked. Since then I am on Lisinopril 20mg to control my bloodpressure. All the tests were fine. At the time of my doctors visit I was weighing 230lbs. So I dropped around 36 pounds in 5 months. Is that normal? Also, it doesn t stop. I keep losing weight. I changed my diet a little bit, but nothing radical though. Less soft drinks and deep fried food, other than that I have decent lunch and dinner. I don t have any pain or loss of appetite. My bowel movement is normal and stool color is light-brown to brown. Could Lisinopril be the cause of my weight loss? Also, I have anxiety and get very nervous with the slidest pain. Could anxiety also be a cause? Your thoughts and comments are more than welcome. Many thanks Michael

I am 74 y/o male who's been losing weight over the past 3 months. Total weight loss has been 3 kilos for 3 months. I have been constipated and my bowel movements have been irregular but my appetite has never changed and I still eat pretty well. I don't have any abdominal complaints. What could be causing this? I also eat fiber-rich foods but to no avail, I'm still constipated.
