We all feel tired sometimes, and particularly at certain times of day. But if you find that you are feeling tired all the time, or a lot of the time, then this is something that you probably want to look into as soon as you can. It might of course be a simple matter of needing to get more sleep – but by that same token, it is also perfectly possible that it is something else entirely causing your tiredness. In this post, we are going to take a look at some of the possible reasons that you might be feeling tired all the time, so that you can hope to diagnose and more accurately deal with the problem head-on. Let’s take a look and see what might be causing your feeling of tiredness.
First of all, it might be that you have some kind of a sleep disorder, of which there are plenty, and if this is the case then it is something that you should look into as best as you can. Of course, you are not going to be able to diagnose this for yourself, but there are some things that you can look out for in order to try and determine whether it is likely that you have a sleep disorder. If you find it hard to get to sleep or stay asleep, even after doing everything recommended to you by sleep experts, then you might be in trouble in this regard. Similarly, you might have specific symptoms which are indicative of a particular sleep disorder, such as snoring yourself awake (commonly a sign of sleep apnea). For any sleep disorder, you will need to see your doctor, and ask that they refer you to a sleep clinic or specialist.
That you might have a sleep disorder is probably a possibility that has crossed your mind. But there are many other possibilities which you might not so readily consider, and that of having allergies is probably one of them. In fact, there are many allergies which can cause you to feel tired or fatigued on a regular or chronic basis, and it is worth being aware of these so that you know what they are and can look out for other symptoms of them. Fatigue is one of the common symptoms of a gluten allergy, for instance, so it might be that merely cutting out gluten from your diet could help you to feel less tired, without even changing how much you sleep. Consider any allergens there might be in your life and see if cutting them out helps your tiredness levels improve.
Depression is one of the most common health issues in the world, and affects people of all ages, genders and races. It can be hard to know whether you are depressed, because often the experience of depression itself stops you from being able to properly perceive what is going on within yourself. It’s worth ruling it out, however, so consider seeing your doctor if you feel tired all the time and you’re not sure why.
