Tiredness. - June 29th 2013, 10:07 PM

I don't know why but I'm so tired all of the time. It gets to about 2pm and I'm struggling to stay awake. I've been an in-patient for several weeks recently so I haven't been physically active - I thought maybe coming home and being more active again might be the reason or maybe I'm lacking iron again. Or maybe it's just related to stress and depression, I don't know.

But what ever it is, how do I deal with? What's the best way to manage tiredness? Because it's really starting to affect my every day life and I can't stand it any more.

I don't know of you suffer anaemia or anything but you could check your blood count by checking the area of skin below the eye which you can move to pull down. If it's red then no worries but if it's a sort of orangy colour or even worse then it's a cause for concern and I recommend you find a way to get more iron into your system. I usually take iron tablets as they work best.

As you've not been active that could be part of the reason and if your food diet isn't involving much nutrition that could also be the reason.

You could always speak to your GP if it persists and see what they think.

I agree with Sarah - you should ask your doctor to run some blood tests to make sure there's no underlying problem.

As for managing the tiredness, I suggest taking a nap after lunch of around 1-2 hours. Experiment with the timing to see what works best for you.

I'm the same, I go to school though so it's even worse, I feel like sleeping half way through lessons and can't, now I'm tired but can't be bothered to sleep, plus it means I'll be awake half way through the night....not sure how to handle it, I find slow release energy foods are good, although I think mine is related to the other stuff wrong with me haha =)
