I am 41 years old.
I have Blood sugar,which is silghtly more than normal range.
I have LDL cholestral, which is also slightly more than normal range.

Other than that I am normal. I ahve an active sex life, frequency is more than 10 to 15 times a month.

I do exercise/yoga , but at irregular intervals.

I do get sound sleep for minimum of 6 hours a day.

My problem: I have been experiencing sleepiness during day time, particulary when I am in meetings/ reading alone.This disorder I experienced, when i get sound sleep for more than 6 hours also.
In addition to that I feel some weakness in my body.

Due to this, I am not able to concentrat in meetings/ presentations/lectures. I am afraid of going for any meetings/presentations/ lectures.Since I want to study further, I worry that whether I will be able to concentrate in college lectures or not?


Please advice me what might be the reasons for this symptom?

What are the treatments to be taken , to get rid of the above mentioned dis oreders?.

I look forward to have your valuable reply.

  • One of several sleep disorder conditions might be the culprit. They are generally pretty managible. Sleep Lab tests and appropriate specialist can usually isolate or eliminate this cause for your sleepiness. Good Luck.

  • no one who is engaged in learning which is of genuine, vital ,fascinating interest to them will experience sleepiness when otherwise fully rested.if physiological diagnoses have been eliminated,i think you would do well to re examine your motives for the study area you have chosen.unaccountable fatigue is frequently an unconscious protection from material which is alien to your nature.(headache is another) many of us make the mistake of choosing the wrong subjects,and for the wrong reason.(being good at something is not necessarily an indicator of its suitability for you.)if this is true for you you should think yourself lucky that your unconscious mind is taking such good care of you.better this than a nervous breakdown(a flat refusal on the part of unconscious to put up with it any more)in later life.identify those activities which are energising for you,which wake you up,and make you happy,and find a way to make them profitable.many men for example make the mistake of neglecting their physical being in their study and employment.this isnt an easy problem to overcome,i admit,because of the way society regards its workers,and we cant all be national park wardens.but many of us need something of the kind.if you look at the bodies of male workers in middle age you can see what i mean. i am writing as a man here,who has learned the danger of guessing the female mystery;but i would be very surprised to learn that the situation is much different for women.bear in mind that a pay cut beats an early grave any way you look at it.good luck.
