Why Am I Always Tired?

By    |   Tuesday, 03 Mar 2015 05:05 PM

Question: I am tired all the time. What would pep me up?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Fatigue is a common symptom of everything from sleep deprivation to anxiety to a variety of diseases and ailments. Sometimes the very symptom we are trying to clear with coffee (caffeine) actually comes back to us in the form of more fatigue when our usual caffeine hit is reduced or stopped.

The secret here is discovering the cause, and then correcting it, or at the very least forming some plan to allow you to deal with it without the terrible feeling that chronic fatigue causes. Here are some strategies to consider:
  • Start with a check in with your personal physician to determine if you have an underlying condition that is to blame for your fatigue.
  • If you are using unsupervised supplements, caffeine or alcohol, stop them now.
  • If you smoke, stop.
  • Make sure you are getting enough rest each night.

A medical checkup can help rule out heart disease, vascular disease, organ problems (liver, kidney, thyroid, lung, bone marrow disease, cancer, infections, or depression — all of which can make you feel tired. Once your evaluation has been done, you can set out a suitable management plan with your physician.

Do not overlook your sleep hygiene to be sure you are allowing sufficient time to sleep in an uninterrupted fashion. Even small changes — such as awakening at night or feeling overly tired on first rising in the morning — are very important symptoms for you to relay to your physician so as the cause for your fatigue can be clarified and managed properly.
