My uncle has no energy and literally sleeps all day!

Patient : My uncle is 53 years old and for the past 5-6 months all he does is sleep. He has no energy, has no short term memory, has problems breathing, and literally sleeps all day! He has been off of work because of all this. He has spent so much money on medical doctors so find out what's wrong with him, and none of them can find anything! He got an oxygen machine about a month or so ago to see if that would help, but it hasn't. He is getting to the point where he just doesn't know what to do, or how to get his life back! Any suggestions on what's going on with him? Please help!
