The Cause Is Often Drowsiness And Loss Of Concentration?
, I am often very sleepy even though I sleep enough. Then I can’t concentrate when chatting with people and when I want to concentrate, my head feels like being pressed so, why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Easily drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, and headaches (like being pressed) most likely occur due to poor sleep quality. You need to know that sleep is not only a matter of quantity, but also quality. Poor sleep quality can be caused by a variety of factors, ranging from environmental conditions (for example due to noise or glare), psychological stress (such as anxiety or depression), dietary patterns (such as consuming excessive caffeine and alcohol), unhealthy lifestyles (for example chronic fatigue), a side effect of medications, or also the result of certain medical conditions (such as experiencing body aches).
This poor quality of sleep can be indicated by the body not feeling refreshed even though it has slept for a long time or even a long time. In addition, other complaints, such as difficulty concentrating, mood swings, headaches, fatigue, weakness, and so on can also accompany it.
Apart from poor sleep quality, several other conditions can also trigger your current complaints, such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), anemia (low blood hemoglobin), electrolyte imbalance (such as sodium or calcium), hypothyroidism (thyroid gland). less active), side effects of drugs, brain tumors, viral or bacterial infections, stress, and so on.
We recommend that you consult your doctor immediately if you feel that the complaint really disturbs you in your activities. That way, the doctor can evaluate your health condition thoroughly and determine whether you need special treatment or not. Several types of examinations, such as blood tests, polysomnogram, and so on may also be done by doctors to determine the correct diagnosis.
In the meantime, first try to do the following:
Sleep and wake up more disciplined, make a schedule every day and stick to it
Love the activities you are doing, so you don't feel bored and it's easier to concentrate
Eat enough and on time, avoid caffeine or alcohol consumption
Take control of your stress
Get plenty of exercise
Stay away from cigarettes
Hope this helps ..
