So, I'm 19. I have a near-perfect history of health - I have the old cold, but I'm otherwise not prone to illness. I exercise daily, I eat and drink well and - while I don't have a 6 pack or any of that crap - I'm in pretty damn good shape.
However, for the past 2ish months (this will be funny in a moment) I've been experiencing gradually reduced Motor Skills; a severely impacted Short Term Memory (My LTM appears fine, I can remember life events etc, but I keep forgetting things short term, think the past 48 hours) which has been getting worse, and a gradually worsening tired-feeling. At this point, my Motor Skills are awful to the point I'll often stumble or fall up stairs (akin to being Drunk, actually), forget tasks on a daily basis - minor and major, and I find myself perpetually tired though unable to induce sleep more often than not.
I never used to sleep well, as it happens, but after being diagnosed with DSPD (Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder) on account of my body not producing enough Melatonin, I was stuck on 8mg Circadin a night to persuade my body to produce more and bring my sleep times back. NOW I sleep well, at the right time, and for a good 8 hours a night - pretty close to "text-book". Atleast I did for a short while.
It's also exam season, I'm dealing with (very little) logistical stuff for University, work is slow but I'm still working often for revision etc. I was just wondering if anyone on here has ever experienced this, as it may shed some light on what this possibly could be. I would like to think it's just stress, but I don't really consider myself to be that stressed.
I also have ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome, not that that's wildly applicable (I don't think, but it might be so it's here for reference).
Again - not trying to self diagnose, just looking to see if anyone here has ever experienced anything similar. Making an appointment with my GP to get his opinion on it (just in case it is worse than "stress" or similar). I don't over exaggerate, that's stupid.
tl;dr: I keep falling over, forgetting I fell over, and then not sleeping. Pretty much feel drunk. Anyone had that?
