Girls lately I've been sleepy way too much. I've been taking multivitamins thinking it's gonna help. I get at least 7 hours of sleep at night. I go to class then back at home and I'm just sleepy and I go back to sleep and i could sleep for like 4 hours sometimes. Pregnancy is out the question because I'm on BC. I just don't know anymore and I hate being sleepy all the time because when i wake up I feel groggy as ever. right now i'm just yarning and yarning. Sometimes when I yarn I yarn so much my jaw starts to hurt.
Go to your doctor and get some blood work done. It could be as simple as anemia which is treated with iron. If this is a change for you don't put off going to the doctor and insist on getting a work up done.
i had the same problem as you years ago and i went to the doctor to get blood tests but everything came back normal. but i think as antigone says, you should go to see if you maybe have anaemia or something. maybe you could also look to your diet. i know when i was getting tired all the time my diet was terrible!
thanks ladies. I do have a very poor diet right now. I'm always eating fast food and it's so hard to stop. I was talking about that to my fiance last night. When I'm on the go or when I just don't feel like cooking we eat out or we eat fast food. I always wait until I'm so hungry that I just want to hurry up and get something fast. My primary doctor doesn't take the health insurance that I'm covered by (champva). That's the insurance I get since I'm still in school. My dads a veteran and that's what they offer. I'm unsure about a diet plan. I can't afford to see a dietician with a part-time job.
You don't necessarily need a dietician. Just look up the guidelines on the internet of what you're supposed to have during the day (sodium, calories, etc), and also check into the food groups and how many servings of that you should be having a day, and just try to keep it in mind when you are eating. If you are looking for something fast, even one of those TV dinners that are one of the lean brands/south beach diet/other kinds would be MUCH better than fast food and it costs about the same/a little bit less.
For a healthy fast food you can't beat a decent sandwich you know! Use some good bread rolls, pitta pocket etc and chuck in some already-prepared salad, houmus, feta cheese, olives ... you get the idea! Very filling and much better than processed stodge! And if you are really on the run, carry some bananas, grapes, cherries or even some dried fruit like dates and figs in a little sealed container. And drink lots of water - about 2-3 litres a day. Dehydration can make you feel very tired, too.
Those are some great advice. I took a nutrition class and eat like I didn't learn a thing! I really appreciate y'all time and advice. I need to start so i can start losing weight before my fiance and I wedding.
Thanks again girl! I'll let y'all know how it goes and if there is any difference in my sleepiness.
