What is wrong with me? I can't stop sleeping.

I've NC as this will out me.

I caught an intestinal parasite whilst on holiday last year and I still have considerable symptoms which resurface every 3-6 weeks. When they are really severe I'm given IV fluids and antibiotics.

I've just started a new job and I am completely wiped out.

I'm coming home from work and sleeping 3-4 hours, then I wake up for a few hours and go back to sleep at bedtime for 7-8 hours.

I'm in my 40s, my children are adults so I don't have a small child keeping me awake.

The parasite means that I don't eat much but I'm taking nutrition.
I desperately want to exercise but I just don't have any energy, it's as much as I can do to go to work.
Between bouts of illness I'm putting on weight and I hate myself being fatter.

What's going on here please?

Have you had any other blood tests? Iron, vit d, thyroid?

I do know a friend was similarly wiped out by something similar flowers

Is it going to be cleared with meds?
