In reply to Fatigue after eating?, posted by Regis Harold on October 15, 2005, at 15:46:45

I have this problem of excessive sleep and tiredness from feb 2005. so many tests but no real findings but I live in hope. Last 4 months, I started keeping daily record of what I do, how I feel, when my energy goes low etc. etc. I think I am a with a good doctor now who is trying to help. If anyone has gone through this sleep problem / helped recover, please comment on my current thought process:
* Eating carb food every 3 hours is important. i have to eat something heavy - being hungry has much a very negative effect which is impossible to recover.
* I have to careful of what I eat from morning till dinner. Anything for dinner is fine but I prefer to take a very heavy carb meal and some milk just before I go to sleep. I just don't want to have a light / disturbed sleep
* I tried eating protien food for e.g. just eggs but after eating 3-4 eggs, my brain still sends signal that I am starving and have no energy to function - so protien alone as diet is out. I mix it now
* I can't eat oily / fried / packaged food. It just knocks me down completely. At home I cook food with olive oil - that seems to be ok.
* No ciggarettes or alchol - increases the fatigue for next couple of days
* jogging / brisk walk helps in the morning but not on empty stomach. Must eat 4 slices of bread with milk or 4 spoons of OAT with milk
* sometimes I feel that sex increases the fatigue but not sure as sometimes it makes me feel good.
* Fatigue levels are very high if not had at least 6 hours good night sleep
* In 2003 I moved to a place which rarely got sunlight plus I work in IT so no chance of sunlight. My Vitamin D levels went very low (15), on 6 week medication - its six weeks now, have to check this week. Doc says this may be causing the fatigue. there is no problem with the bones / calcium level etc.
* Trial & Errors already done in the last 4 years - atypical depression & idiopathic hypersomnia. several tests done with normal results: GTT, sleep apnea, CBC, brain scan, colonscopy. Now possible suspect vitamin d deficiency or adrenal related fatigue

My symptons: when the sleep attack hits (I still don't know exactly why) - I can't focus, I feel sleepy, alertness dips considerably. The only way it comes back to normal is to sleep for 2-3 hours during the day time but not on empty stomach.
