I sleep 8 hours a day if not more, and am still very tired during the day. I always feel the need to take a nap. I'm not some workaholic who works 24/7 plus goes to school. I just go to school mon-fri for 5 hours. can someone help me out?

That's because you all are lacking vitamins. Vitamin B, B6, and B12 give energy. If you eat unhealthily, then start eating healthy. No junk food, fast food, or any of that crap! And make sure you eat enough!

Get your thyroid checked especially if you are gaining weight too.

I know quite a bit about this. theres a few possibilities. 1st, what you eat..like ....salty, fat food. You could be missing IRON in your blood. Alot of ppl do. try some green vedgies. 2nd Your cardio i had an healt condition and i would be tired all the time. sleeping 13h a day +. So i started using my bike alot. that was the end of it. And 3rd, i realy wish its not the case, but depression does that. And a few psycological deseases. But only rare cases. But alot of young people are depressed. especialy teenagers.

I think it might be an iron deficiency. Maybe you could get a blood test because it sounds like your lacking in some vitamins. if you don't want a blood test just try to balance your diet a bit more exercise and get plenty of sleep.

I have this too! It could be many things though are you too stressed or are suffering from anxiety or depression? Sometimes sleeping too much or staying up too late can cause this, too. I find I'm most awake when I only have 5-6 hours of sleep. Just try going to sleep earlier and seeing if maybe sleeping a little longer or less could help a little.

I'm the exact same way. Sometimes I find exercise helps. Even if you can get out and walk for 20-30 mins a day, I find it makes a difference. Also try eating more fruits & vegetables. Hope this helps!

dude i sleep about 12 hours a day and am still always tired. i found out it was because of something called adrenal fatigue. look it up and see if it fits for you

I had this before I went travelling. I did work probably about twice as long as you though. Had a job again for the past few months and my energy levels just started to drop again. Quit my job and now I'm fine again.

There are a few reasons you are feeling tired without any reason. One of them is anemia, which is a lack of red blood cells and conversely, oxygen from the lungs is not properly brought to the tissues and cells. Anemia may be caused by deficiency of vitamins or minerals, internal bleeding or chronic diseases. Women who are at “that time” of the month are susceptible to anemia as blood is lost during menstruation. Still, iron deficiency due to menstruation is less than in pregnant women or lactating mothers, as their body needs extra iron to maintain healthy blood levels. Things may also go wrong when your thyroid glands refuse to cooperate with you. Thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) are responsible for metabolic processes in the body. Too much thyroid hormone causes hyperthyroidism which speeds up metabolism while too little thyroid hormone slows down metabolism. Hyperthyroidism causes fatigue and muscle weakness and starts in the thighs. Doing energy demanding activities become difficult and other symptoms include weight loss, feeling warm, shorter menstruations, increased heart rate and thirst. Hypothyroidism also causes fatigue and muscle weakness. The symptoms are reversed to hyperthyroidism such as weight gain, feeling cold and longer menstruations. Diabetes, notorious for causing a range of problems in the body, is also related to fatigue. As glucose is the staple fuel of the body, it is not utilized properly in patients with type 2 diabetes as the absence of insulin causes the glucose to build up in the body. Without its staple fuel, the tissues of the body are not nourished properly and causes fatigue. Sadly, being sad can also be the reason you feel tired. Depression induces negative feelings and also has negative effects on the body as it causes a reduction in energy levels, changes in sleep and eating patterns, decreased concentration and overall laziness and worthlessness which keeps you in bed all day.

I'd try exercising a little, whether by going to the gym or just going jogging or something. In my experience it helps a lot -- eating healthily does too. All areas of health are interrelated.
