Hi I have had the above symptoms for over a year now. I have been tested for diabetes, celiac disease, vitamin defeciancies, thyroid, sleep apnea. All of these tests came back perfectly normal. Lately my symptoms are getting worse I am tired all of the time, and falling asleep often. I do work shift work, and have been doiing so for about 5 years. I don't know what else could be causing these symptoms.
Any help is most apreciated
