 you may want to have your blood levels checked. you might have low iron and you can take an iron suppliment.

I would go to your primary care first, there are many imbalances that can cause what you describe and can be easily fixed once you know what suppliments to take.  Thyroid, vitamin d definciency, low iron, estrogen problems can all be a factor and its important to know what is at the root of your problem.

if not, then go to your doctor...

Make an appointment with a nutritionist. It may very well be what you are eating or not eating.

Could be your diet but depression would definitely make you feel like that and also you should have blood work done as others said.

I would talk to your dr before you take anything. You don't want to take something that me interfere with meds if you are taking any. I am the sameway. But I try not to sit down if I am busy doing something. They may need to put you on a B complex to give you some energy.
