I have had issues with sleep most of my life. This resulted in me spending most of my waking hours tired. But I am starting to worry....
I can't get up in the morning. I either A--dont hear the alarm or B--simply turn it off unaware. Also, I can spend an entire weekend sleeping. Not just sleeping 10 or 12 hours....but sleeping night and day!!! This issue has only developed in the last 3 months.
I am going to school in the morning and working in the afternoons. Last week I was on spring break. I could have worked extra hours but I was exhausted. I still had difficulty getting up at 11am!!!
I wanted to add a bit more information. My life is busy...but not overly stressful in itself. All this sleeping is causing stress for me! I am not getting laundry done...or homework done.
I have always been a very healthy person, except for taking meds for depression. I have cut out a lot of fast food and started eating more fruits. I don't think it is a factor created by the depression. Though I am going to call both my Psych doctor and my GP for appointments.
What are some key things that my GP should be checking? What are some causes to such exhaustion?
