Idiopathic Hypersomnia Has Ground My Metabolism To A HaltHey guys,
I don't know who out there will take the time to read this, but whoever does, thank you. I, like many of you, suffer from Idiopathic Hypersomnia. I have a few guesses as to what has caused this disorder for me, but no real proof for any of it. Furthermore, my sleep doctor seems to feel that giving me a stimulant (half a Nuvigil these days) for four or five days a week has "solved" my problems.
Well, it really hasn't. I'm able to feel so much more like a normal human being these days, and Nuvigil has restored my "battery life" to almost normal, about four days a week.
Even if I was ready to accept that I will only have about four good days a week for the rest of my life, there is a glaring problem that is baffling to me these days. I am not only not losing weight, despite trying, but am actually gaining weight. This is to be expected with IH, but NO ONE seems to have advice!
If IH has destroyed my metabolism, and I'm too tired to workout even harder, and am already eating well, what else can I do to lose this weight?? I'm desperate. Any ideas would be so greatly appreciated.
As always, still praying for things to turn around for me, and for all of you too.
