So for the past three years I've been waking up constantly feeling tired. My body feels heavy and even while sitting down in a chair all I want to do is lean over and lay down on the floor. I've noticed when I eat snacks, drink coke or eat a take away the symptoms become a lot worse. I don't know if I'm allergic to something or what. Even with eight to twelve hours of sleep per night I wake up feeling like I haven't gone to sleep. Also my mind feels doggy and I find it hard to become motivated.

I've been putting a lot of weight on as a result. I've gone from a 32 inch waist to a 44 inch waist in the three years suffering from this in silence hoping it'll go away.

Whenever I exercise it causes me to become really dizzy and faint. Sometimes after doing a few squats I'll stand up straight, my vision blurs even with glasses on, it goes grey-scale, I get dizzy and disorientated and I have big black circles all over my vision.

None of this seems healthy. Everytime I go to a doctor they look at me as if I am strange and finding a good doctor seems almost impossible at the moment.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. You need to lose weight. Sign up to FDA approved weight loss program and see if it helps. Diet lifestyle modifications will help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
