When should I see a doctor?

Postby MEmery19 » Sun Sep 02, 2018 3:16 am

So I’ve been losing sleep each night. I only get about 5 hours of sleep before I wake up again and feel tired the rest of the day.

I’ve been trying to go to bed early, but I just like there thinking of what I’ve done that day or what I didn’t do.

How long should I wait before seeing a doctor?

Why would you wait if something is bothering you? When was your last complete physical exam? Any major life changes or diet or medications? Anything you are doing differently?
Start there and if a referral is needed to see a specialist, have the doctor write you one. Increased anxiety can be treated.
Best of luck to you. :D

thanks for your reply,

my health is very good and I ran all the tests covered by my insurance. everything checks out except for a severe vitamin D deficiency. so im chalking this up to the vitamin D pills i've added to my diet.
