Lack of sleep = Fatigue?

Postby mansnils » Fri Jan 18, 2019 10:00 am

I've received treatment twice for fatigue. However, I'm still fatigued. Does lack of sleep equal fatigue?

Yes, I would argue they go hand in hand. I have suffered from insomnia for years. I sleep maybe 5 hours a night, more often 4. Occasionally I'll get 6-8 hours and feel wonderful.

So, if you're not sleeping, yes you're going to feel like trash. It's your body's natural mechanism to keep itself in order. (more or less, aside from our mental "blessings") LOL

In the long run, yes, but from my experience being constantly stressed makes me much more tired and unwilling to do anything, where sometimes I pulled an all-nighters because I couldn't sleep and felt wonderful and full of energy.

Yes, less sleep can be a reason for the fatigue. With the lack of sleep the strongest drive for sleep occurs at the end of the day. That is why most people feel sleepy in the evening, with an overwhelming desire for sleep. This effect the bones and muscles, a heaviness to the limbs, as if you just ran a marathon. You can't keep energy to accomplish what you need to. You're physically and mentally dragging through the day.

If I sleep less than 8 hours, I feel like a zombie all day. I need 9 hours of peaceful sleep to feel like a human being.
Primary Dx: OCD
Secondary Dx: Bipolar
Meds: None. I refuse to poison my body and mind with psych drugs.
