Always feeling tired

Apple Girksw
Feb 10

Did anybody had the feeling of always being tired? It doesn’t happen during the work but rather after work and on weekends. I feel very tired mentally and I don’t want to do any mental work. Sometimes I can just lay on the bed and watch movies or browse the internet the whole day, but I can still feel tired after that.
And it seems like my body is not that tired since I can go to the gym easily.

I am not sure if this would be helpful but I noticed I can get angry much easier and more often now.

Don’t I have enough vitamins? What can be a reason?

      You should try improving your sleep. I’d start by aiming for no less than 8 hours a day and ensuring that your sleeping area is cool, quiet, and dark.

      Do you snore? Feeling tired and light sleeping are symptoms of sleep apnea or similar sleep conditions. You may want to check with your doctor for a referral to a sleep specialist, even if you are not overweight.

      Allergies can also give you fatigue due to impaired sleep and other reasons. Do you have allergies (frequent stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, etc)? Taking a non drowsy antihistamine once daily could help.

      Of course I’m not a doctor so talk to yours about all this stuff

    This happened to me last year (or I suspect it was building up for a few years), and I put it down to chronic sleep deprivation. I would be fine at work but completely crash and sleep through entire weekends. It felt like I was underwater almost, like my senses were blurred. I took a long holiday and decided to get my sleep schedule in order in that time. Now that I get 7-8 hours of sleep fairly consistently my energy levels are up and I find it easier to focus. You mentioned you don't sleep well - maybe that is one thing to work on and bring up with a doctor.

      Did u have anxiety or any other symptom? Did just simply sleeping more fix it? (Sorry I may be having same thing and seems hard detect in blood work)

      @gsg I didn't have anxiety or anything that I recognized myself, then again lack of sleep has been shown to make us less aware of these things. The symptom was mostly increasingly worse exhaustion and sleepiness on weekends. I highly recommend the book Why We Sleep if you're interested in learning more about how chronic sleep deprivation affects us physically and mentally - that was the thing that made me recognize the actual issue (obvious in hindsight that 3-5 hours per night isn't really sustainable, but that's what I've been doing for years)

    For me this is usually a sign of burnout when it happens I take a long weekend or go on vacation. Aggressively exercise and make sleep a priority. If you continue you'll soon be ineffective.

    Check your thyroid levels. Classic signs for hypothyroidism.

      OMG. Thanks doc. My sister fell for this 20 years ago, and struggles with severe long-term untreated depression because she still wants to believe it’s her thyroid. She is now finally admitting she is clinically depressed, but she can’t find any treatment or outlet for it. But when I dig in to the topic with her, I can tell she still wants to believe it’s medical and probably related to her “low thyroid”. I’ve dealt with this for 20 years, it’s incredible how people still want to ignore depression and look for “chronic fatigue syndrome” diagnoses — which have no remedies. BTW she’s been taking “thyroid medicine” for a long time now, it is her happy pill. She’s tried some anti-depressants over the years, but always quits due to side effects. She lives below poverty in an economically depressed rural part of the US. She cannot find or even afford therapy, and she also gives up on that because quack therapists there will lead her back to religion and advice like go for long walks. None of that has helped.

      I'm sorry. But, "Believing" is different than getting it checked and move on to other usual suspects if it is within normal range.

    This happens to me during winter days mostly probably due to reduction in vitamin D or days when I over workout.

    I feel it on days when I am super stressed out or unhappy.

    And when I go through this, I either end up sleeping 4-5 hours or 9-10 hours. And then I will always be irritable, lethargic or will not be in a mood to do anything.

    Changing my diet and drinking more water helped me a bit. I also try to stay away from any stressful or bad relationship... it could be bf/gf or bad friends or even certain family members or relatives.

    Ah yes, when I was in my 20s I too wanted to believe it was “medical”. I’ve had another 25 years to fully realize I am prone to mild depression (sometimes worse), yet I’m a highly functional one. I can actually get a lot done because I’ve learned to work through it by staying occupied. Unfortunately that has led to years of workaholism which can slowly trigger a depression, so I need to get that one under control at my next job. My 2 years at Amazon did nothing to help with that, other than to finally realize that workaholism can eventually cost you a job because you get over-invested in your own ideas. Many of those ideas might be great for the company, but much of that extra 20% can lead you to unnecessary problems which can cost you the trust of others.

    Get some physical activity like going to gym or yoga on a regular cadence. That might help.

    Change your diet and get more sleep. I cut down carb and it helps significantly with energy level.

      How so? It might make one more irritable if they don’t have a FB/FWB.

    If you notice this happens more so in the winter and you live in Seattle, you might have seasonal affective disorder like me.

    It’s called depression. Welcome to the real you. It’s in your DNA, and therefore has always been with you. If you look back in time, you’ll likely find clues from your childhood and especially teen years. Because it’s in your DNA, you’ll always have it. So you need to find ways to live with it, because it will want to destroy you. Don’t let it. Good luck!
