Ok, I'm new here and I've have not been diagnosed with CFS. I'm not sure whats wrong with me either. I am tired all the time, I have no energy. It's been going on for about 3 months now. I just thought that I was over worked at first, and a little depressed, but it's starting to worry me. All I want to do is sleep. I just can't seem to get enough sleep/rest. What is going on????????? Am I just lazy? I just feel so drained all the time. Help!
Look into sleep disorders like sleep apnea and hyponea.. these can be triggered by allergies and weight gain and other such things. I wouldn't blame it on laziness or CFS or sleep disorder induced sleep deprivation without getting checked out by the relevant specialists.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
another thing is they say 90 percent of adults have insomnia a few nights a week which makes them too tired.my sister disappeared 5 1/2 years ago,and since then i barely sleep.i am lucky if i sleep 3 hours a night,even though i have tried ambien,tylenol pm,goody pm,and even trazadone.and i am tired all the time,have no energy,can't do things i used to always do.
my sweety and school are the most important things to me
I am sorry to hear that you are so tired all the time. I use to have also problems falling asleep and feeling fatique and tired. My girlfriend recommend a whole food based supplement Juice Plus and since then I have felt great! I so strongly believed in the product that I became a distibutor. If you need additional information on Juice Plus I can let you know. I will keep you in prayer.
Please have your blood tested for anemia, it will not go away on its own, it would be good to rule it out. There are a lot of different anemias, so talk it over with your dr.
PS-I take a small amount (2mg) of melatonin when I go to bed, and it works very well. I have tried a lot of other sleep aids, expensive and inexpensive, this is the first thing that has ever worked well long term. I haven't tried valerian root, but they say that works well too.
