    I will and thank you x

  • As the above have said you need to see a GP at the very least. I feel for you I was like that in my last job I was tired at work and once I had eaten I slept the rest of the day. it took the weekend to get me up enough to start the week. The waking gasping could be Sleep Apnoea something else that needs to be looked at. I have episodes but not enough for treatment.

    Be Well

  • Hi Penney, You have a very busy job - to some extent I am thinking no wonder you are tired all the time! I would advise that you ring BLF helpline a call: 03000 030555 9-5 Mon-Fr. The nurses will be able to help you and advise you. Also please go and see your doctor and ask the doctor what he/she thinks. Lots of love TAD xx
