What the heck is going on with me?
I am struggling to figure out what is going on with my body (and mind). It's having a huge impact on my job and life and I am done procrastinating. I was hoping someone could provide some insight.
As per my doctors words I am a healthy young man with no history of illness. Bloodwork and std tests bring up nothing. I am 26. I started feeling the following symptoms about 2-3 years ago.
-Extreme fatigue: I don't have difficulty falling asleep, but I never get a deep sleep, nor do I feel refreshed in the morning. 5-6 hour sleep average per night. It's gotten to the point where I actually take days off work just to sleep all day and that doesn't really do the trick either. I may have sleep apnea. Today I went to get the monitor to confirm this over the weekend. My gf suggested this because she said I snore and also wake up in the night gasping. So this may be the culprit. I am hoping it is as simple as that.
-Sometimes when I try to sleep I feel like my bones are taut, and my feet get really jittery. No idea...
-Sometimes I find myself having to manually breath. I can't just auto-breath anymore...if that makes sense. Taking an antihistamine helps.
-Not overweight, but I definitely need to get back into daily exercise. I remember the benefits. I've also been eating fresh fruits every morning and trying to eat healthy.
-Lack of concentration/focus: Probably related to sleep, but I also seem to have a huge difficulty focusing in general these days, in particularily at work. It's almost impossible for me at anytime of day to only do one thing at a time. Either on my cell phone or surfing the web while talking to a client. I do meditation and yoga and that does help, but only temporarily. I've been in the same role at my job for 8 years and we've moved buildings a couple times. The work is pretty stress free and my team is amazing but overall maybe I think I am bored of office work. Every day I seem to get more and more jittery at my desk. I just can't sit all day. The work I do does not inspire me. I do not feel any passion here. And I've been in the same city my whole life. I feel like a big move is ahead of me, either to different city or maybe even country. I need change, really bad. I feel like a zombie these days and I crave adventure and something new. Despite how I feel at my job, it pays great and that's why I am still here.
-Just bored, unmotivated. I still play lots of music and hang out with my friends. I love life and laugh a lot, so I don't think my issues are related to some sort of depression or something.
