Thank you yes please
You need to see your gp for this. I think you have sleep apnea syndrome. This makes one tired during the day. Most people with this also snore and stop breathing during sleep.
We do a sleep study to make the diagnosis. Your gp can order this test for you.

I dont stop breathing during sleep and also what can I take?

Oh ok i see
You have to have the sleep study before we can discuss treatment. Here’s some information.

Maybe but what explains the tiredness ?
The sleep apnea causes the tiredness. It’s because you don’t get enough restful sleep. Everyone with sleep apnea is always tired and sleepy .

Oh i understand so i just ask gp to get tested on this. Anything else you’d recommend for me ?
I would get routine blood tests and also check your thyroid hormones.
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
I’ve had blood tests done less than a month ago and they came out as all normal
I see sleep apnea patients frequently and at all ages.
Blood work is typically normal with sleep apnea.
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Do you think my weight can also have an impact on it
most people with sleep apnea are overweight.
You need to discuss this problem with your parents also.
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
Oh and also ive sometime been having muscle pain
The doctor will check that out.
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
