Question: always tired

 kelizabeth4 - Tue Nov 02, 2004 4:05 pm

no matter what time i go to bed or what time i wake up, i am always tired. i try to take naps, but that doesn't help. i have tried going to bed early, sleeping in, just about everything. it is frustrating to feel tired ALL the time. the worst times are from about 2pm - 6pm. that is usually when i feel the most tired, but even after i wake up in the morning and get ready for work, i feel like going back to sleep again. most of the time when i wake up, i feel like i haven't slept in days. please help. thanks!

Do you exercise?

I suggest getting an iron test, B12 and thyroid. Good to eliminate those.

have you had any other symptoms like sore throat? OBecause it could be glandular fever. the only other thing i can think of is chronic fatigue syndrome. Def worth getting an opinion from your doctor. :) good luck!
