Hi, My name is gayan.
my day starts late since i start work at 1.00pm, finishes at 10.00pm in the night.
When ever i go to work ans start working in my PC I feel very tired in my head.

I normally drive to work.
But doesn't feel any difficulty in that.

But when ever I sit infront of the PC I feel tired and I find it unknowingly that I'm not focusing properly to the screen and it's all blur. That is my default focus. But I can always focus to read the PC. But goes into misfocusing when I rest. I guess it's making my brain tired.
I've tried to understand whether my focus is more or less but have not succeeded in finding out.
Because of this nature I feel very tired to talk.
I have got several complains saying that I can not be heard properly.
Not the volume but the content I speak.
Most of my sentences finish in complete unknowingly.

I want to get some treatment if this can be treated.
Would much appreciate your kind advise. or any referral to a type of doctor I should consult, as I'm clueless as in whom I should consult on this matter. (nurologist?).

Regards,
Gayan.

You should see your regular doctor and get some blood tests. It may be as simple as a thyroid imbalance, which can be corrected with medication.

How long have you been feeling this way? Days, weeks, months? Other than your job, have you been doing anything differently that may have brought on these symptoms?

Have you been sleeping okay? Or do you wake up tired? If all your blood tests are normal, you may consider going to a sleep specialist and seeing if you are sleeping normally.

Make a list of questions for the doctor along with a list of symptoms and when you experience them. For example, do you feel better on the weekends when you can sleep more, or when you eat eggs for breakfast, or anything? Do you wake up in the night or do you sleep straight through?

I have been feeling like this for months.

I guess this problem is hindering my professional growth interms of my carrer.
I'm an accountant.
But my work is not that hectic.

I sleep okay. 6-7 hours in the night only.
go to bed around 12 mid nightt. get up around 7.00am
I'm not sure whether this is an eye problem.
But even if I keep my eye shut I feel the same till I fall asleep.

As feedback from my workplace, they have told me that I have a sleepy walk.
Not energetic enough.

Today I feel tired throughout the day.

Due to this I tend to not pay attension to what anyone say sometimes.

Is this signus which I've got.

I hope to see a physician day after.
Not sure whether to see an eye specialist again.

Thanks for your response.
I will get the blood tests and check my thyroid status.

Thanks again.
Gayan.

I don't know what "signus" is. Are you spelling that right?

Why would this be an eye problem? Your eyes don't make you feel tired. You make your eyes feel tired.

Also, you might try getting more than 7 hours of sleep. Go to bed an hour or two earlier for a week and see if you feel a little better.

O.K do you wear reading glasses? I personally don't need glasses most the time (I'm long sighted) but sometimes when I'm on the computer I wear glasses with a very small prescription of 0.75, this helps to take the strain off and prevents the head aches, also avoid stimulants like coffee and tea instead drink plenty of water and eat fresh fruit, sounds simple but when I actioned the above it made a world of difference, I'm sure more sleep will help.

If I were you I would start looking into alternative medicine. You have choices either to rely on your doctor to fix your challenges or to take proactive choice in your life.
Let me know, what you think. I may be able to help your problem.

Try this before taking medication
I felt the same thing at times as well. I believe it is caused by a lack of movement for me personally, thus everytime I get this, I believe it is generally because I have not taken a jog in a while, and it is generally accurate.

I feel alot better after going for the workout, and I encourage you to do the same before you take medicine.

Furthermore, staring at a computer screen for 5-6 hours a day is going to hurt your eyes. I recall a time in which my eyes started tearing up because I had much work to complete that day. So try taking a break from looking at the screen every 20 mins by looking at a point approximately 20 feet away from you for about 2 minutes. This will refocus your eyesight and give it the frequent break that it needs.

I hope this helps!
