Hot whisky and lemon.
Ha-ha!  :grin:

Wonder if hot tequila and lime would work?

 :beer:
I'm very sure tequila cures everything, even without the lime.   :yum:

Arturo, you're so lucky to have us as your doctor.  :tellmemore:

Pretty soon, the weakness and the extreme sudden sleepiness will be gone, all you have to deal with is the "small, insignificant side effects" of the "medicine."  :snicker:

Well, technically I am.  I went to medical school.....

How have you been feeling otherwise?  Any signs of infection or illness?

No signs of infection or illness. I do have a psychotic disorder which affects brain chemistry. But otherwise I can say I've been feeling really good.

Edit: I do have mild and involuntary muscle tightening in the back of my head though.

Sorry. Totally forgot about what you said in the other thread...about alcoholics dying.  :(

Well, you really can't blame us.  :smileshake:
You have given us permission to practice medicine without a licence.   :smilenod:

Do you take antipsychotic medication? Some of them can make you very sleepy and can have impact on muscles too.

Yes. Although the current on that I am on makes your muscles tighten, not weaken. Which is why I get it in the back of my head.

Also last week I went to the gym 4 days in a row, which is not normal for me. I usually go every other day to give myself some rest. I ran each day and had one long day where I focused only on legs. Each day I go I work 1-3 groups of muscles on that day.
But, uh...well there it is.

Out of curiosity, are you getting muscle twitches as well after going to the gym 4 days in a row?
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

A little yeah. That's not out of the ordinary though.

Don't forget to put some mustard on it too.

It sounds like you're doing a lot which would explain the tiredness.  My tiredness hits me suddenly too, I can be fine and awake one minute and the next I literally cannot keep my eyes open no matter what I do.

Yes I always do a lot. During school I was also doing that and keeping up with family. I had a thread about this somewhere where I was concerned that I was crashing from doing so much for so long.

Edit: This is the post I refered to, although not it's own thread. http://www.happyatheistforum.com/forum/index.php?topic=724.msg354386#msg354386

I suspect that maybe because I am a guy, I am told that there is not too much work for me. So when I say I'm tired suddenly or my body gets weak, people who know me offline say I'm just not used to it. Although if that were true, I've been at this gym thing for over two and a half years. Why is it just hitting me now? It's not the usual hump to get over when you don't exercise for awhile.

I know that feeling well. I see it in my cousin. I know it inside and out. It's like you said, suddenly sleepy and nothing you can do.
But, uh...well there it is.
