No matter when I go to bed or how long I sleep for, I stay tired. All day I am yawning and I just feel sleepy. Any suggestions? :/

do you have low iron? i'm anemic and it causes me to be tired and cold along with otherthings. you can find out by a simple blood test.

A simple blood test that costs money I don't have but hopefully if things work out for me, I will be able to start seeing a doctor soon. I go Tuesday to see if I am qualified for their in house low/no income insurance.

I was like that last winter. No matter how much sleep I got I just felt exhausted. Turns out I was low in Vit D! Had treatment for two months and now so much energy back. I live in the Pacific NW and not that many sunny days in the winter months here. Hope you can see a dr soon and feel better!

I agree with the vit d. I was severely deficient and was incredibly tired all the time, just exhausted. My levels are up now at the low end of normal so I'm feeling much better lately.

Also, low B vitamins can cause you to feel tired. I have read that the RDA in multi vitamins is low for most people. I know you're eating healthy, but you still may be lacking in some vitamins.

If you can get in to see a doctor, I would also recommend you have your thyroid checked. That can cause fatigue.

Have you had any changes in the amount of carbohydrates you consume? I know that I was pretty tired when I lowered the amount I was eating by about 10-15%, but it was only temporary until my body got used to it. Of course, now if I go under 50% (I try to stay close to 55%), I really start dragging as well. But that percentage is different for everyone.

I had major fatigue issues before I started the healthy lifestyle changes, but mine had to do with insulin resistance + 70% daily carbs = unhappy body. My hormones were all out of whack. That may not be the issue with you, but just something else to consider.

Hope you get to feeling more energetic!

I was miserably exhausted all the time until I saw my doctor and she sent me for a sleep study. I found out I have very bad sleep apnea and now that I'm being treated I feel like a million bucks. Just thought I'd throw it out there!

I hope you feel better soon!

Thanks Shannon

I did have sleep apnea but no more since I have lost a significant amount of weight.

Also, before I moved here, I was able to go to the county health department for medical care for $5 a visit and there, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and they put me on some medication (I forget what it was though). I only took it for a limited time then things went drastically wrong in my living situation and then I moved here and have not had a proper medical checkup since but hopefully that will be rectified Tuesday.

If you donate blood, they have to check your iron level before you can donate. Although with a history of hypothyroidism, that would be my first guess.
