I don't know if I'm weird, if it's some medication I'm on or what, but I usually feel perpetually tired. I have since I was about
19, I'm 33 now. I can sleep all night or even 10 hours, get up for a while and be perfectly content to take a nap. If I do take naps during the day (if I can and am not working) I sleep like a rock.
When I wake up in the morning I rarely feel refreshed. It's usually the drag myself out of bed thing. Does that sound like a sleeping disorder?? I do sufer from GERD which has been increaseingly getting worse over the last year. I work full time, love my job, exercise, my blood work is good, I do take lexapro that they say can make you tired but I had this problem before I started lexapro. I'm married to a great guy but we don't have any kids so it's not like I'm doing 3am feedings.
I just don't understand why I'm tired all the time. If I mention to the doc, they just check my blood work and then say well, you're probably just run down. Run down from what?!?! Could it be my diet, maybe I don't eat right? I eat fairly healthy....just trying to figure it out because it's frustrating. I don't know much about
chronic fatigue so I thought maybe you guys could share your thoughts.
