First let me start by saying that the symptoms that I experience come and go. There are times; usually every other week or 2 weeks where I feel tired, sleepy (sometimes I sleep 12 hours), lazy , nervous, a little shaky, stressed out, and tense (don't know if its my job). My brother as well as some freinds have told me that I look yellow in the skin. For my age (22), I am a little underweight (135lbs) even though I eat, I just don't seem to gain weight or lose it(which is good); I was told my weght issue was due to my rapid metabolism but by know it should of slowed down right?. About 3 months ago, I started working at a job in which I work evenings from 3p.m.-9p.m. one week and 11p.m.-7a.m. in morning the other week rotating and thats how it was for a while. Just last week I decided to work graveyard permanently 11-7a.m. I mention my job schedule to see if it has anything to do with my symptoms. I have been feeling like this or quite some time but since its nothing serious so I think I didnt pay much attention but know I am concerned about my health. Can anyone please help me out here? what should I do?

  • Get checked for hepatitis, all three varieties...there are usually free clinics that will do it...check around or go to your doctor and get blood work.

  • Yeah will do..Im tired of feeling like this! I also have one doubt; Are any of these symptoms related to dehydration? I notice that at night I sweat b/c either the a/c or fan isnt on and I must admit im not much of a water drinker!

  • I don't think yellow skin is caused by dehydration. Make sure you have plenty of fluids in the heat. Look it up online.
