Always tired

Postby Scarynorwegian » Mon Jun 05, 2017 9:40 pm

I am always tired no matter how early or how much I sleep. I always wake up feeling like I haven't slept at all, and throughout the day I'm tired and will sometimes nod off. I'm always yawning all day every and feel tired, I feel too tired to walk or talk or do anything most of the time. If I stand up after sitting for a while I get a headache and my head and body always feels heavy and tired.

I also have dreams every single night, most of the time they're pretty scary and in my point of view.

I would consider seeing a doctor or specialist in case there are any other underlying medical conditions that might be causing this such as chronic fatigue, however you also want to make sure you are getting good quality sleep. Are you waking up throughout the night? Sleeping in pitch black? Winding down before bed time? Have good sleep hygiene practices? Exercising too late? If you feel these are in check and you are getting deep sleep then definitely see a doctor and find out what else is going on.

Hi there Scarynorwegian!

I have been where you are. Let me first assure you that despite how difficult feeling tired can make things, with a little effort you can make a change. So try to stay calm during this period of difficulty in your life which WILL change.

I have made a huge amount of effort to help myself when I was going through what you have (and believe me it was incredibly close to what you described - including nightmares). I did it basically because life is short and I want to enjoy it and live it at least at 50%, but not feeling at 2% every day.

So the bad news is there is no magic pill for this (besides moving house if you believe you might be allergic to something in the house perhaps?). But the good news is that through consistent, focussed effort, you will narrow down and determine what works for you and what doesn't, to even get to the point where you are even sleepoing better than your friends and family!

What have you tried? Who else do you feel comfortable asking for help? Have you had blood tests from the Dr / sleep study? Is your room cleaned regularly, and aerated at least twice a day? Does it have a funny smell? Have you visited a good Acupuncturist? (Might be a spleen energy deficiency - common cause of constant tiredness). What self-help books have you read?

Now is the time to push, marshall your friends and family for help, don't feel bad to ask because at the very least once you've improved your sleep you can inspire other sufferers. Get it? YOU must get the ball rolling, the sooner the better. The change might not occur immediately, but it will, I promise. One thing in life to keep in mind is that "all things shall pass". So please, don't let it stresss you, look it in the face and tackle it!!
