    Good afternoon, my name is Jeff. I am 24 years old, male, white, American living in Dallas, Texas area. I am 5'8" and weigh around 125 pounds. Thin, pasty, and plenty athletic. I have one big problem that's been plaguing me really bad for the past 2-3 years... I'm EXTREMELY sleepy fatigued all day, every day, and there seems like there's nothing to do about it. It's literally ruining my life. Regardless of how many hours of sleep I get at night (0 to 14 hours), I cannot be productive at work (9-5 office job) because I feel like falling asleep the entire time. Naps don't do any good, as I just get tired eyed again 30 minutes later. The sleepiness seems to be concentrated in my upper nose, eyes, throat, and upper abdomen. I've always been this skinny; never can gain weight. I normally eat 1-2 times a day (large meals) as I always have throughout my life. All routine annual blood tests have come back virtually normal in every category, including my most recent one a few months ago. My wife says I don't snore at all (never have snored), and I'm skinny and young? I did get diagnosed with a small left thyroid nodule in 2013 but my TSH is always pretty center normal. I don't have any underlying health problems, never have. I do sometimes wake up feeling a little short of breath and have a weird scratchy feeling sometimes when I swallow during the day. Is it because I'm dreaming too much and not getting enough "delta" deep sleep? If so, how to fix this sleep cycle disorder?

  • What household item or medication can put me to sleep in under 20 minutes, I have an exam in a few hours, it’s 3:50AM and I need to sleep...?

    Best answer: First of all, be sure to set your alarm. Do NOT take a sleeping pill. That would make you dull for the exam. I'd suggest just a glass of warm milk if you have it, or maybe some bread. Then just close your eyes and lie quietly. If you can't fall asleep, even just lying quietly is kind of restful.

    I had been getting dizzy and a headaches when I would stand up from being sitting or laying down and then in about March I Believe I was on my period and I was on my bed feeling sweaty and hot and I got up and got the dizziness but this time everything went black and I fell down really hard. I figured it was because of my period but sometime later it happened again, same thing but I haven’t fainted since. But still each time I get up I get dizzy and a headache sometimes worse then others and I’ve just not been feeling good altogether for a while. I also started getting weird patches on my skin starting above my breasts and I know it’s not fungus because I bath and everything lol. It’s also pretty scary because I don’t know when I might fall over again. The two times it happened I got lucky because it could’ve been worse. Any ideas of what could maybe be wrong? Thank you :)

  • Do my brother and I possibly have motor tics?

    So my brother (who is four years older than I am) and I are always twitching and moving around, and it's worse in public.

    So my brother (who is four years older than I am) and I are always twitching and moving around, and it's worse in public. We can be sitting in our rooms doing nothing and all of a sudden just jerk a part of our body. My movements are: sudden wrist popping, tossing neck to the right, neck jitters, "light bulb screwing" is what I like to call one, and a sudden jitter from my shoulders up. Very rarely, I can lightly lap myself which gets annoying. I also 'wave' my fingers a lot, from my index to my pinky, and tap on surfaces that annoy my family. Just reading those back made me do them. My brother has Misophonia really bad, and he has earplugs to wear during mealtimes. He can still slightly hear chewing sounds, though, so he always does this: twisting his wrist (the light bulb screwing) twisting his neck, and tapping the table, index to pinky. In general, his movements are: (all of the ones from Misophonia), shoulder jitters, and sometimes his legs just shake all over. Today we were at the post office for about 1 hour 15 minutes getting passports, and my brother kept tapping the table in the middle of the room. My mom asked him if he's going to be doing that all of vacation, so my brother said "I can't help it!" which is exactly how I feel. We both have gotten some looks, but the stares aren't as bad as the kids who are diagnosed with Tourette syndrome. Thanks for reading my long post, and anything would be of help!

  • I can't sleep what should I do?

    It's 11:30pm and I think I will not sleep tonight because I drank coca cola and it's not the first time this happens. Every time I drink coca cola or other sodas it's very hard to fall asleep. And when I have cigarettes I smoke them in the night. What should I do tonight?

  • After defecating I wipe my butt well but then the hole starts itching a few hours later. Then when I wipe again it's dirty again, why?

    Best answer: See a doctor to make sure you don't have pinworms. They are normally most active at night, but you need to be certain.

    As for the fecal matter, you should discuss that with a doctor, too.

    I am a parent, work full time, and I'm in grad school, to there really are not enough hours in the day to get everything accomplished. Ideally, I would like to be able to fall asleep by 11 and get up at 4, so that's only 5 hours of sleep. But, if I could do this, then I could get up early enough to get some classwork done before the day starts. Does anyone have tips on how to healthily live on 4-5 hours of sleep/night?(other than drinking multiple pots of coffee a day :)) Any tips?
