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.

Oh ok i see
You have to have the sleep study before we can discuss treatment. Here’s some information. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/sleep-apnoea/

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.
