Hello doctor,

I have been having the following symptoms for the last month or so. Difficulty in falling asleep at night. I have witnessed sudden jerks when I am about to fall asleep. After such jerks, it becomes difficult for me to get good sleep. I do not remember having these jerks once I completely asleep. My spouse complains of me snoring afterward and quite heavily in the morning. I have weakness and fatigue the whole day. The weakness is so profound in the morning, that I do not feel like getting off the bed.

From last few days, I have been having episodes of low sugar. The sugar level was around 70 to 55 when I checked. I feel very hungry abruptly, sweating on palms, and so weak that I feel like losing balance while walking. I have a family history of diabetes and hypertension. So, I have becomes anxious, which adds to my symptoms more. I have hypertension tendency. I have had hypertension for five years, but I started taking tablets four months back. Last week, I had my preventive health checkup done. I have attached the report. Please advise.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your history, and I have seen all reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). I am highlighting the abnormal results.

  • In your CBC (complete blood count), there is raised MCV (mean corpuscular volume). You have vitamin B12 deficiency. Are you a vegetarian? You need to take some vitamin B12 and Folic acid injections. I suggest taking injection Vitcofol 2 cc IM (intramuscular), every day for seven days. Along with tablet Folvite (Folic acid) every day for 30 days.
  • Secondly, you have low vitamin D level, so I suggest taking tablet D3 Must 60K (Cholecalciferol), every week for 12 weeks.
  • Most importantly, you have raised homocysteine level, which can increase blood coagulation. I suggest taking Homocheck (Cyanocobalamin and Pyridoxine) at least for six months. Repeat the test after six months.
  • Your CRP (C-reactive protein) is raised. There are multiple reasons for the same, and you need not do anything for this right now.
  • From your history, I think you have anxiety. I suggest tablet Nexito plus (Escitalopram and Clonazepam), before bedtime. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines after their consent.
