I am always tired. I wake up sleepy and foggy almost every day. I have been on a cpap machine for about 16 months. The doctor told me I have sleep apnea and a limp disorder. Now that I have lost over 30 pounds and am down to the weight I should be, the doctor said the apnea is much better and the limp disorder is just about gone. The doctor still wants me to use the cpap machine so I still use it nightly.

Some of the various drugs I have taken are requip, zoloft, ambien, zanex. I don't remember all of them. I am currently taking zanex. By the time it is 6:00pm I am ready to go to sleep. I average 7-8 hours during the week and around 8-9 on the weekends.

I feel foggy, forgetful, very fatigued most of the time. The doctor is going to do more blood work. Epstein Barr was mentioned, but I don't have any of those symptoms. I do have cold hands and feet most of the time.

This has been going on for years!! Can anyone give me some advice or suggestions. Some days it is very difficult to get out of bed and function.
