I suggest you talk to your doctor if this is affecting your ability to work. Be careful with driving and do not operative heavy machinery until your doctor has had a chance to adjust your dose or find an alternative medication that wouldn't make you so drowsy. ...Read more

It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. However, you symptoms may be due to dehydration. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. Start exercising and gradually increase the intensity of exercise.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Could this be due to the medication I was taking or something else, how do I get through this? Fight through it or rest? I was taking Zoloft for just over 2 weeks, it triggered something in me that brought back my belemia issues. With that I had a panic
I am so glad that you wrote in with this question. Please get in touch with your doctor right away. I can not diagnose you. However a couple of things may have happened that might be associated with the zoloft (sertraline). I don't know what the zoloft (sertraline) is being prescribed for or what your mental and or medical history is. I also don't know how high your dose is. I am concerned by your description of taking medication and developing sped up speech and highs and lows. Your sped up speech and panic may be due to anxiety. There is also a possibility that taking the zoloft (sertraline) could have triggered hypomania or mania. Symptoms of mania or hypomania could include either elation or agitation, racing thoughts, thoughts shifting rapidly from one subject to another, confusion, a decreased need for sleep, talking more or talking faster, taking risks that aren't normal for you and a really high energy level. If this has occured, it can be serious.
On the other hand, sometimes zoloft (sertraline) and the class of drugs called serotonin reuptake inhibitors can lead a person to feel nervous, and restless. You may get a headache or be more tense. You might experience loose bowel movements. Your body and my mind can also reacte negatively if a medication is abruptly stopped.
Ok, my biggest worry is your statement "i need to continue with life but am so exhausted and feel like I cant." if you are having thoughts of taking your life, it is imperative that you get emergency assistance. If you have a plan of how you could kill yourself and an urge to carry it out, you need to be seen at the emergency room right away. Call 911 if you need to.
The long and short of it, - get help now. You are worth it. ...Read more
Since childhood I have occasionally, but regularly struggled with getting full/deep breaths while resting/sitting. Any advice? 42 yo, nulligravida, good health, no medications, no cholesterol/bp problems. Modestly exercise regularly (bike riding/walking),
You sound like you have 'occasional episodic dyspnea' and it might be suggestive of 'sigh' that is physiological about 6-8 times per hour in normal humans... Simply means longer and deeper breath or two, periodically. If it is more than this or not exactly how I am inferring your question to be, or shortness of breath is more of a concern, then it very well be that you need a 'work up' and evaluation. Talking to a good pulmonologist to check your lung function tests and imaging studies may be a good place to start.
Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have high blood pressure, which I am currently taking medication for. Last night, I didn't get a goodnight's rest & my BP ls high, is this common?
Sleep is critical: Sleep loss the night before can raise systolic BP (the top number) as much as 10 mm/hg. 10 points is about the maximum amount of benefit you would expect from a medication. When combined with chronic sleep loss, stress becomes a major factor and can cause even higher elevations in blood pressure and nullify the benefits of a medication. ...Read more
