Please help!! I'm always tired!!

I do not have health insurance so I can't see a doctor about this. For as long as I can remember, I have always been tired all the time. I am not always sleepy but my body feels so tired. On a bad day, my body feels so heavy and I feel like I just been to lay down. No matter how much rest I get, it's never enough. Some days I am able to do normal daily things like grocery shopping or light house cleaning, but that usually takes lots of coffee. I have tried taking vitamins and drinking lots of water, but it doesn't seem to help. I heard about something called chronic fatigue, could this be what I have? Is there anything I can do for this? It is extremely frustrating!

Have you researched Celiacs Disease? You may have a Gluten intolerance. Not sure, but just trying any options. Good Luck. Hang in there.

It could be anemia. Ideally you should get a checkup, but you could try an iron tonic. How is your diet? Look up diets for anemia, gluten intolerance, allergies, etc. Nothing to lose, right? Cheers, Sera

I have found that completely eliminating gluten, wheat and most dairy products have made a huge difference for me. My sister-in-law had your exact same symptons and found a natural solution that worked for her. She ended up feeling much better and having more energy. If you would like to know what she did, let me know. Most vitamins on the market are 95% synthetic, which will do nothing for you except cause damage if taken long term. Hope this helps and you're feeling better soon!

I suffered with the same thing for years. Finally, I had a sleep study test done. I was waking up many times during the night (I was unaware that I was awake, it was for a very short time each time, because I would stop breathing), so I was tired all the time. I could wake up in the morning and feel like I had never slept. Look up Sleep Apnea. I have to wear a mask ever night that keeps my air flow going. They may have a clinic you can go to free of charge. Good Luck.

Yes, definitely get tested for sleep apnea as this caused me fatigue for many years. Also, you may have night time silent acid reflux disturbing your sleep. don't eat a heavy meal 3 hours before bedtime an stay away from acidic foods
