Causes Continual Fatigue?
Good afternoon Doctor, I have experienced continuous fatigue for the past 2 months. I get sleepy easily and sleep longer to 12-16 hours a day. In addition, I also lost my appetite, very often I only eat one meal a day and don’t even eat at all (just drink it). In addition, lately my emotions are also often up and down even small things can make me angry easily but there are times when I suddenly feel down. What kind of condition am I experiencing right now? Is this a sign of a certain disease? Please help, thank you.
Good afternoon, thanks for the question before.
