Always Tired or Sleepy
I am always tired or sleepy. This started a year ago. To cope up, I would sleep for 11-12 hours a day. But that was when I was in college. Now that I have started work, it's becoming extremely difficult to manage and I force myself to drink coffee to stay awake. I have also been suffering from too much hairfall and pimples since the past 1.5 years. The worst part is I realised that something is not right around 2 months ago. I thought maybe this is because of my not so healthy lifestyle. So I started exercising, half an hour every day. I also skipped junk food. I rarely eat outside. But the problems still persist. I read some articles on the internet and I feel I may have hypothyroidism. My neck swells rarely, but I feel it's because of tonsils/cough. I weigh 48kgs with 155 cm. I gained around 2-2.5kgs since last year. Please help. Thank you.

Hello There. I can understand your concern. I would suggest you consult a MD consultant physician in person and you will need to get a few tests done to come to a proper diagnosis, you might be having thyroid imbalances and some nutritional deficiencies. do not delay further. consult a endocrinologist ASAP.

As you suspect,there is high possibility of hypothyroidism..check your thyroid profile. But also check for anaemia.. If nothing is picked up,undergo a sleep study.. Incomplete or interrupted sleep at night may cause day time sleepiness..which may be due to OSA(Obstructive sleep apnoea)

You need to do the following blood tests: CBC ESR, FBS, PLBS, BUN, Creatinine, SGPT, SGOT, Thyroid profile, Vitamin B12, Vitamin D3, Chest X ray, & Sonography (Abdomen & Pelvis). Consult a physician with these reports for appropriate treatments. If your menstrual cycle is irregular then you need to consult a gynecologist as well.
