Why am I so tired all of the time!

I take vitamins everyday. And I go to bed at a decent hour. I wake up in the morning exhausted, Im very tired and weak all day, and I go to bed tired. The cycle continues everyday. Is anyone else experiencing this?

  • you might not be sleeping well during the night. tossing and turning alot. you might want to try a new pillow, or a body pillow or something of that nature. do you have a lot on your mind when you lay down to sleep? your body might be tired, but you are having a hard time shutting down your brain. you need to find a way to erase all other thoughts from your head. play a game in your head. as funny as it sounds when i have that problem, i play a game where i think of a topic. for instance : things that have to do with summer. then i got through the alphabet and name things starting with that letter until i reach the end. it can be tough to come up with stuff, so by the time you get to the end, you are often drifting off to sleep and not thinking about anything else.

  • Exhaustion isn't a sign of depression, butterflyblue. There's more serious symptoms then that.
    Sounds to me, OP that you have low iron. Possibly Anemic. Talk to your doctor about it and have your blood drawn.

  • Iron deficiency, perhaps. Could be stone-cold fury about your life, or about someone in your life... might be the rest of your diet (vitamins won't compensate for a pop-tarts and soda diet), or a lack of movement/exercise. Might be a thyroid problem, or diabetes.

  • Could have low iron and/or vitamin D. You should make an appt. with your DR. and have blood work done. That was one of my complaints. I wasn't depressed but was tired all the time, took vitamins like you too. I had very low vitamin D. My Dr. checked for whatever she could with my blood. That was the only thing that came back bad.

  • Do you have allergies? If you do, you may not be getting enough oxygen.
