Postby northernstar » Fri Jul 22, 2011 2:24 pm

my DH is complaining how exhausted he is everyday no matter working anot. b4 we are married, he already complains that often.

sometimes, he will just doze off while watchin tv.

he has tried these methods but they are of no use to him:
- drink coffee.
- sleep early.
- have 8 - 10 hrs of sleep.
- have naps.
- drink herbal tea.
- take Redoxon pills.
- go jogging once in awhile.
- taking cold bath.

i ask him to ask doc but he dun listen :roll: wonder isit cos of work stress.. :?:

If you do not mind my comments/questions...

does he sleep well?
It could be due to mild sleep apena... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_apnea

It sounds like his rest is not quality, even with quantity.

Otherwise, it could be stress-related somewhat...
A good lifestyle review may be necessary, for a lot more regular exercise, healthier diet, and etc.
Changing ones attitude and outlook is difficult but may do wonders too.

At times, a good long vacation can help.

Perhaps visiting a correct specialist should be in the cards.

All the best!

PS. for some, the water source is a wonderful place to start off with... see this thread: http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/forum ... 1&start=40

When is the last time your Dh went for a medical checkup?

Can ask how old is your DH and whether he is overweight?

Age - Men will also get menopause, so not sure if he is of that age? A severe drop in Testosterone I think may cause lethargy.

Overweight - As posted above, sleep apnea? He may not be getting quality sleep.

In any case, better to get a doc to check it out.

hi MadScientist,

tks for ur advice... sometimes, my DH snores in his sleep and i assume that its cos of fatigue. my DH seldom takes sweet food and soft drinks.. i wonder is his exhaustion caused by lack of sugar lol.

we went for vacation b4 but his energy level remains the same la lol.

i had decided to buy water purifier system after readin ur post. hope it will help when we start drinking healthy water at home :smile:

:thankyou:

How about his general health? Does he complain of headaches/backaches/ etc often?

And the bed? Maybe the bed is not suitable therefore affecting his sleep?

Maybe can exercise more ....
