my son is 18 and had a abd problem with diarrhea (1 year ago)and led to him being extremly tired and sleep constantly... the sleeping has been approx 16-18 hours per day. he saw a psychaitrist and was given psych meds (cymbalta and lamictal)to get him up and about (not working). He was tested for gerd (it's chronic) and given prevacid. he was tested for mono = neg and all blood was normal except cholesterol which is high (not taking meds for). He looks very pale and weak and only wants (needs to sleep). I am desperately looking for cluse as to what is wrong. He gets tutoring from school (senior). He cant even work. He does not drink alcohol or smoke. He has no energy to do anything. The GI doc says that he has post viral gastroparesis and the residuals can last up to 3 years.. any help would be much appreciated. I am considering SSI for him at this point. He is 6'4 and 235 lbs, has lost 20 lbs w/i the year. thanks, JanetReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
