I am a 23 year old white female, 5'5" and 149lbs. I take birth control, B complex supliments, 1200mg calcium, abd 1000IU D daily. In the past year I have been on two courses of CIPROFLOXACIN 500 MG ORAL TAB for UTI's and one course of Amoxicillin for Strep.
For about 6 months (since June 2010) I have been suffering from hypersomnia. I sleep around 10 hours a night, and wake up exhausted. I fall asleep any time I sit or lay still. I have fallen asleep in class, on the train, at work....all places that I don't want to sleep. I get very sleepy when I drive more then 5 minutes, and have to chew gum or wiggle my free leg to stay awake. I have found that if I keep my hands or feet moving, I can stay awake, but I am exhausted all the time, and as a result have become cranky. All areas of my life are being seriously impacted, my g
My blood pressure has also been low over this period, ranging from 90/52 to 110/70. My "normal" blood pressure is around 100/70.
I have gained 8 lbs since April 2010, but that might be because I sleep so much my activity level has dropped.
I have lost all interest in sex, am unable to become sexually aroused at all.
In July 2010 blood tests showed low b12 and D levels, but after taking supplements for a month tests came back normal. I have continued the supplements.
My TSH level is normal at 0.794, normal range 0.320-5.5 uIU/mL
My ESR is normal at 5, normal range 0-20mm/hr
Multiple basic metabolic panel and CBC tests have come back with all values in normal range.
I did an at home sleep study and that came back normal
They did a cortisol stimulation test, I don't have the results but the endocrinologist said the cortisol levels were slightly high, but normal considering I am on birth control.
Any ideas on what could be causing this?
