What can you do if you feel constantly sluggish and tired?
In the modern fast-paced world, it is not surprising that the majority of people feel chronically tired and drowsy. We are oversaturated with unnecessary information to the point that we became addicted to it and simply cannot live a day without checking our social networks at least 20 times a day. This is one of the factors that drain our energy and make us constantly tired. But there are also other factors which can be eliminated. Moreover, it is crucial to find out the real cause of your drowsiness and fight it comprehensively especially if it is related to an underlying diseases, vitamin or mineral deficiency, and so on.
What can make you sleepy during the daytime?
Basically, there are two times of daytime sleepiness disorders: primary hypersomnia and secondary hypersomnia.
The first type consists of two standing alone conditions – narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia.
Narcolepsy is the most severe type of hypersomnias as its main symptom is unbearable sleepiness during the day which can cause people suddenly fall asleep whenever and wherever they are. These sleepiness attacks are called imperative which means that they are irresistible unlike in other types of sleepiness disorders. If you think that you may suffer from this disorder, check if you have other symptoms that are considered crucial for the diagnosis of narcolepsy:
- Sudden muscles weakening during the day which can result in falling down without actually losing consciousness. These attacks are usually triggered by powerful emotions.
- Sleep paralysis, i.e. a condition that occurs when you are falling asleep or waking up, are fully conscious but cannot more or speak for a couple of seconds to a minute. - Trouble falling asleep or frequent night awakenings with trouble going back to sleep.
- Hallucinations occurring when you are falling asleep or at awakening.
The disease is diagnosed firstly based on the patient’s complaints and then with the use of special computer-based sleep analysis tools such as Polysomnography, multiple sleep latency test (MSLT), computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the head that helps establishing whether there is an underlying condition (tumor, injury, etc.) that may cause these symptoms. Narcolepsy cannot be cured but it can be successfully managed with the use of amphetamines or much safer modern medications from the class of nootropics based on Modafinil or Armodafinil, one of which is Waklert you can buy here. These medicines are able to make an affected individual stay awake for 12 hours without the need of napping, they make the sleepiness attacks resistible, and are also suitable for people with other sleepiness disorders such as idiopathic hypersomnia, sleepiness caused by depression, insufficient night sleep and so on.
Idiopathic hypersomnia is similar to narcolepsy in two aspects: a person has a need to sleep more, has numerous sleepiness attacks during the day, can easily fall asleep while resting, i.e. watching a movie, etc., and has trouble falling asleep. But the difference is that the attacks of sleepiness are not as intense which means they are resistible. Besides, this condition isn’t accompanied by muscle weakness episodes, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis (it can happen but it’s not a necessary symptom). This condition although much less severe also can interfere with normal life and cannot be completely cured. The drugs such as Waklert are officially not intended for such disorders but considering their safety and effectiveness, we would recommend trying them over caffeine-containing stimulants or popular among students Adderall which is much less safer as it can easily cause dependence.
There are also other basic recommendations for coping with sleepiness in both conditions:
- Follow a stable schedule of going to sleep and waking up;
- Reduce exposure to any screens or bright light 1 hour before going to bed;
- Do at least 15-minute physical exercising in the morning;
- Let the fresh air and natural light in your office and home as much as possible even in winter.
- Follow a healthy diet. A secondary hypersomnia is basically daytime sleepiness caused by a health condition. For instance, it can be brain tumor, diabetes, vitamins deficiency, and many others. We will review some of them below.
What other causes of sleepiness can there be?
Most often, fatigue and drowsiness are caused not by one cause, but by many different factors. To avoid problems with sleep and health in general, you need to undergo a full medical examination regularly, take tests in time and avoid self-medication. Although if your tests all come back normal, you try following the tips for avoiding sleepiness during daytime and still suffer from it, you can buy Waklert and use it as indicated in the guide to ensure that your body gets safe help in producing natural wakefulness-promoting substances.
