i have been suffering a slowly increasing symtom over the past few years of my life and it has reached a stage where i think it could be a medical state.
Every day when i wake up, it feels that i need to sleep more, regardless of how many hours i sleep, i tried sleeping up to 12 hours and my body just doesnt mind sleeping that long and i still wake up with the feeling of having slept for just 4-5 hours, i then feel sleepy all day long and any time of the day if i close my eyes i find myself about to dose off to sleep, it can happen in the elevator at work or whenever i am alone. i dont actually fall asleep in these cases so i can still control myself, but this constant feeling of need for speep has been increasing over the years, in addition to a general fatigue and loss of concentration at work and during any conversation in my daily life.
I have met with several doctors in a hospital in paris, they made sleep tests to see if i have respiratory problems at night and they found that i didnt, i did all kind of blood and urine tests looking for any anormalities which i didnt, i havent been taking any medication when these symtoms appeared. after the visits in Paris the doctor informed me that they see no physical reason for my case and that it might be a case of general sleepliness (a degree of narcolepsie) or a general depression.
They prescribed to me to take one of the two medicines (Modiodal or Ritaline LP) i tried modiodal but i still feel the same sleepliness symptoms. i am also not convinced about this beeing a depession, i have no reasons in my life for depression and on the best days of my holidays when i am in the best mood i still feel the same symptoms.
i made CAT scans, abdominal scans and chest scans and all turned out to be normal.
I made a heart test on the monitor machine and all came our fine.
I am really lost behind the reason for what i feel and i need to be directed to how i could further investigate possible reasons for this condition which is deeply affecting both my work and private life.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and for ypur help
