Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The symptoms of confusion, confusion, and difficulty sleeping can indeed be a symptom of delirium, however, delirium is very very rare in young people, if it occurs in young people usually the cause is the use of illegal drugs, alcohol, or if the young person is have certain very severe diseases. The main characteristics of delirium are its sudden and acute onset, and the daily fluctuation of symptoms.
The symptoms that you experience can also be caused by other things such as acute or chronic insomnia, depression, anxiety disorders, acute psychotics, dementia (in the elderly), electrolyte disorders, certain disorders of the brain (such as brain bleeding, brain tumors, etc).
If the condition is really bothering you, you should check with your neurologist first to see if there are certain physical problems that make you experience these symptoms. If you currently use certain drugs regularly (not necessarily illegal drugs, but sedative drugs, anticholinergic drugs such as cold medicines and allergies, opioids to treat pain), you should stop using these drugs. If the drug is a medication prescribed by a doctor, then consult with your doctor about possible reactions or side effects of the drug that is causing your symptoms. Try to reduce your workload and get enough rest every day, try to sleep at least 7-9 hours a day. Eat enough good nutritious food, drink enough at least 2-3 liters a day, and try to reduce stress.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
