Why are You Tired All the Time?

It is commonly said that adults should aim to achieve between 7 and 8 hours of sleep per night in order to feel the most refreshed in the morning, and to allow your body the proper time to heal. If you do not achieve this amount of time during your nightly sleep, it is likely that you will feel more tired in the following days until you are able to get more rest. However, if you are on a consistent sleeping schedule, and you are able to get the recommended amount of sleep per night, but you still feel incredibly tired the next day, there may be more going on that you should consider getting checked out.

Why You Should Be Concerned if You Are Always Tired

If you experience an onslaught of fatigue and lack of vital energy consistently no matter how much or how often you sleep, there may be other factors that are contributing to your sleep deprivation. Women are more likely to develop a constant tired state than men, as thin blood, or consistent blood loss is a large factor in the medical reasoning for an elongated state of fatigue. To begin getting tested for medical reasons for why you may be experiencing these symptoms, your sleep specialist will start with a blood test. This blood test will be able to tell if you are anemic, or if your thyroid gland is not functioning at the optimal speed. These blood tests are more commonly performed when patients present with other symptoms such as heavier periods, hair loss, bowel movement changes, increased thirst, and significant weight loss. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms along with your increased fatigue, receive a tailored sleep disorder treatment in New York today when you call the experts at Sleep MD.

If your doctor utilizes a blood test to determine the cause of your persistent fatigue and does not come back with results that link to a medical diagnosis, there may be factors that are attributing to your fatigue outside of physical problems. Increased stressors throughout your life, consistent caffeine intake, and an unhealthy lifestyle may all be viable reasons for why you are still feeling tired after a good night’s sleep. When there are small but frequent stressors in your life, you can actively fatigue your body by overthinking about all of the possible ways to resolve every issue. To decrease the amount of stress you’re feeling on a daily basis, try to write down things that are constantly on your mind, and go back to them when you have time to deal with the potential solutions. If your doctor can link your constant fatigue to caffeine intake, it may be time to start reducing the amount you ingest in order to achieve a more restful night’s sleep. Start by taking one caffeine-rich product out of your diet for a while, until you no longer think about it, and attempt to limit yourself slowly to one caffeinated product per day. If you lead an unhealthy lifestyle that does not cause you to physically exert yourself, you may not experience a fulfilling rest. Your body also works harder when you are not in shape, and as a result, you may be more tired than usual throughout the day.
