So tired, all I want to do is sleep all day and night!
Hi there I'm just looking for some advice if anyone knows what this sounds like?
I'm constantly really tired; I'll sleep all night starting at 9 pm and can sleep until 2-3pm the next day. I feel like I never have enough energy and it makes me not want to do anything. I have anxiety attacks as well, but am on medication to control them (Effexor XR) as well as the depression associated with the disorder. I also am taking birth control, Trycyclen Lo. But even before being on medication I never felt like I had enough energy, although it has gotten much worse. Other symptoms (just to give you an idea of how I'm feeling, I'm not sure this relates with my sleeping problem but maybe you will see a connection) are that my feet and hands feel dry and swollen throughout the day, my feet, especially, get boiling hot while I'm trying to sleep. My legs also get extremely restless and my muscles are sore while lying down. I'm always constantly itchy, like an irritating itch, I'm even scratching right now. I feel like itís an effort to breathe and my back hurts, I'm constantly stretching it out to crack it. I will feel nausea very easily, but that symptom may be from my anxiety (I'm Puke-Phobic, I'm terrified of throwing up or someone else throwing up... I know its weird lol). There are also times when my heart will beat fast when I wake up and I'm not having an anxiety attack. I will be completely relaxed and my heart will pound.
I consulted my doctor numerous times about my tiredness, she continues to tell me I'm so tired because I sleep too much. But I want to sleep so much because I'm so exhausted all the time. She has also done blood work on me and found that I have a low iron deficentcy, I took iron supplements for a while but I didnt notice much difference in my tiredness.
I just feel drained all the time, any answers? Please
