Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Enforcement of the diagnosis of psychiatric problems requires direct evaluation by a doctor or psychiatric specialist, through a systematic anamnesis process, a comprehensive physical examination, and supporting examinations if indicated. Unfortunately, access limitations prevent us from being able to carry out the series of processes directly, so we cannot establish a diagnosis or provide a response to a diagnosis made by a doctor who treats you directly. In general, doctors who treat patients directly have more complete clinical information about patients so you are advised to consult directly with your doctor about diagnosing your condition.
Easily tired and lots of sleep can be one of the symptoms of a psychiatric problem, but these symptoms are not specific to a particular disease. An example of a psychiatric illness that has symptoms of fatigue and a lot of sleep (decreased daily activity) is an episode of depression. However, the possible causes in the form of physical abnormalities need to be removed first, for example anemia, malnutrition, infectious diseases, etc.
Meanwhile, paranoid schizophrenia is a collection of chronic / chronic psychotic symptoms that have symptoms in the form of disturbances in the contents of the mind (eg delusions, ie beliefs that are not in accordance with reality but are constantly maintained and cannot be changed logically), thought processes (for example: ideas- moving and unrelated ideas, formation of new words, etc.), perceptions (for example: hallucinations of sounds / visions / sniffs, illusions, feeling the environment changes, feels himself changed), and / or emotions (eg, a feeling of flatness, blunt, or mismatch).
We recommend that you consult back to the doctor who treats you or to a psychiatric specialist as you are referred so that evaluation and treatment is needed. The most important thing is that you do not self-diagnose the condition that you are experiencing based only on limited and unreliable information from the internet. By going to a professional, your condition can be evaluated and handled appropriately.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
