Default Holy fatigue, batman

I am experiencing the WORST fatigue lately. It's just mind-blowingly bad, to the point where 2 hours after I wake up I can barely make myself stand up out of a chair. I think it has something to do with the fact that I'm getting poor quality sleep lately (waking up basically feeling like I was hit by a car. Sore, tired, mopey, etc).

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else has had experience with this. I really need to do something about it, because it's cutting horribly into my exercise and overall enjoyment of life/ability to get ANYTHING done.

That is something I will definitely do in about a week when I get back home, but I still need to survive through my final :P

The one time this happened to me, my iron was tested and I was severely anemic.

Iron supplements are good idea, just be careful, they can make you super constipated!

Honestly, the only time that ever happened to me (well, the only 3 times it's happened to me) I was pregnant.

When I went to the dr for that problem, we discovered I was hypoglycemic.

Try taking a b-vitamin supplement. That's a great one for energy.

Same here and it was a severe Vitamin B deficiency....I would go to the doctor and take a multi-vitamin in the interim.

Me too. Severe Vitamin B deficiency and I thought it was normal to be sleepy all the time. I finally got checked after I kept getting unexplained bruises all over my legs. The doc gave me a B12 shot and I instantly perked up and had so much energy. My bowel movements also became regular after the B12 shot.

Every second disease/deficiency has fatigue among it's possible symptoms.

As the first poster said, only a doctor can help you and it is very important you go quickly.

There are plenty of diseases you should not wait a week to diagnose.
