"Treatment"?: That's like asking your mechanic how to fix your car running rough. He'd say, Have to find out WHY it's running rough first. You can't get "treatment" if you skip the entire step of diagnosis. HypotoniA & hyporeflexia are signs, not diagnoses. Who has them? What age? This sounds to me a lot like a question about a baby. You've actually provided NO history. Please repost.

Not sure the ?: Do you mean, how do u tell my supervisor, or how can i tell if am suddenly weak or fatigued? If feeling weak or fatigued such that cannot function optimally in the or, you must let someone know and not be there. Sudden weakness is abnormal and must be evaluated by a physician. Comment: nurses, docs, many health professional r lousy pts, or somehow magically don't need to be a pt. Bunk. Bunk. Bunk.

Systemic reaction: The morning is a time of adjusting and preparing for the day. The body has to wake up and get ready, but also has to digest breakfast and react to the stimulants of food and caffeine. Develop a good routine and be cautious about excessive carbohydrates and excessive caffeine, take the time for your body to adjust. Also, be sure your sleep is good quality. Discuss these issues with your doctor.
