I get checked by ny endocrinologist,and ophthalmologists, and cardiologist in addition to my primary care physician. I have been to psychologist, sleep disorder specialist and neurologist. I am almost out of all specialists. I used to be a software specialist but had to give up because of travel. I own few business to keep me occupied. I am married to a wonderful wife ( a physician), and a beautiful well settled daughter.
Financially we are well off and very social in our community and society.

I also take vytorin. My fasting sugar is in the 90.

I am tired after 10am in the morning. I take a 2-3 mile walk at 8am.

I can not focus, my eyesight to read after 10am. I have checked eyesight; they can not find any problem.

I have idiopathic sleep disorder; I can sleep 7-8 hours in the night and sleep at any time of day for 2-3 hours.

My weight is steady for last 40 years at 142lbs. No alcohol, no smoking, Lacto vegetarian. Occasional cup of coffee.

i have seen neurologist and endocrine doc. all test are negative for thyroid and mysthenia gravis.

The weakness is making routine work difficult.
