This is a very serious problem and I cannot get help!
A few years ago, I became vegetarian for personal reasons and many of my health problems went away, making me elated. However, within weeks, I also began sleeping 23 hours a day with the inability to wake up. It was very hard to stay awake for more than 15 minutes. I became disoriented in school and could not find my way out of classrooms. I had to drop out of school and I couldn't drive because I was too sleepy to stay alert. I just wanted to Zzzzzzz. I saw various doctors, had numerous blood tests and they could not find a problem but always shuffled me onto another doctor :P.
I saw a nutritionist and she said that my diet was very healthy - high in protein and all other nutrients.
Out of desperation, I tried eating baby formula. Suddenly, I could stay awake. I also tried spirulina, a sea algae, and again the symptoms lessened. If I eat 3-4 cups of either of these foods, my symptoms completely go away.
All my friends are vegetarian athletes. We all eat the same, they are healthy but my body has a very unique problem.
It is as if my body does not manufacture a certain nutrient. Rather than resigning myself to eating animal protein, I want to figure out the cause of the problem.
