hi im a 19 yr old girl, sort of fit, im not overweight, but dont ask me to run a mile!
i am constantly sleepy throughtout the day, i fall asleep on the bus, sometimes even at college! i dont have anemia, i have been tested and im fine. there is nothing wrong with my thyroid, as i have been tested an all fine, i do not have diebeates, i am all clear on that one. the Dr says its nothing physical, how are you sleeping? i replied ok i guess, but i never wake-up feeeling re-freshed, NEVER! so on she went asking me questions, do you snore? a bit i said, sometimes louder than others, sometimes not at all - i have this info from my boyfriend. do you stop breathing when you sleep? my boyfriend says i do sometimes, but then i will gasp and carry on breathing as usual, this only happens occasionally though. she then asks do i wake up alot? i wake up yes, but thats to turn over or go to the loo, or to move the duvet off me cuz of hot/cold etc, or my boyfriend kindly wakes me on one of his many trips to the loo in the night! so she still has no idea whats wrong with me, she asked am i depressed, i say well i maybe, and i stressed? not that im aware of, but i have been doing research, and from all of th symptoms i am depressed, except form thinking of killing myslef, all the other symptoms seem to fit. could this be the cause of my interrupted bad sleep? could it be my boyfriend getting up 6 times to go pee? could i have sleep apnea? i also have terrible nightmares, weird scary ones. with people i recognise, people ive fallen out with, people ive only met once, dreams are another issue, but if they are distrubing my sleep maybe they are related? im just so tired, i get sick easily, i dont want to go out, as im too tired, or is it because im depressed? i dont watn to have sex, even though i used to love having it, is this due to the tiredness or the depressiveness, i know being depressed kills your liabido, but could i just be too tired? im really strugling, my Dr is confused, i have yet to mention depression to her....
some opinions would be awesome, many thanks
