    for the past few months or so i have been really tired, and slept alot more, and i dont no why

    i go to sleep about 11 and wake up at 7 on weekdays, weekends 11pm go to sleep and wake up about 12, and everytime i wake up i feel really tired, i find it really hard to get up and normaly fall back to sleep, i normaly stay sleepy for half the day then im ok then about 5pm i get really sleepy again,

    I like to think i have a good diet, e.g. i have loads veg everyday, drink about 1ltr of orange juice (the ones with bits in), iv tried going to bed early, tired it for about 2weeks but that didnt help at all. And i have bags under my eyes. i just dont no wot to do.

    could it be because i dont do enough exercise, though i do a morning paper round every week day, i do go out on my bike alot, but cnt at the mo as my bike is broken. I would try jogging but for sum reason, whenever i do, if i jog for for about 5min, i heat up really quickly and suddenly feel really faint and either feel really sick or i am physicaly sick

    any advice would greatly be appreciated

    thanx

    I hate to sound like my parents but 11pm is most likely late, some people just need more sleep than others. Being tired at the weekends is probably becuase you are over-sleeping. But if you have tried going to bed early (you need to do it for more than 2 weeks) and you're still not better then go to the Dr. I was like that but I was going to bed at 8pm on saturday, sleeping all day Sunday and all through Sunday night...turned out I have glandular fever. x x x

    tehe you sent that at 10:57pm! I've found the perfect amount of sleep to function normally for me is when i go to bed at 12:30am and wake up at 8am. Though i've spent many weekdays staying up until 2:30am and getting up at 8am and it's not pretty! Espec after 4 nights doing that, you're a walking zombie.

    It could be a thyroid problem, over-active lifestyle, depression, doesn't seem bad enough to be chronic fatigue syndrome, the list is endless....

    If it's disrupting your life, see a doctor and try to solve the root cause of the problem.

    Yes but it's a Saturday and I've been helping at my cousin's birthday disco and I've been sleeping most of the day. The GF has just messed everything up...I come home and go to sleep. No revision or anything..it's physically impossible. Yes you should see a Dr if it's hampering revision or anything like that.

    Apparently teenagers need 9 hours sleep a day because of hormones and stuff. Could just be that. I often feel real tired too (even fall asleep in class!!!).

    Try giving yourself the full 9 hours sleep a day. If that don't work then see a doc.

    If you're actually drinking plenty of water and doing plenty of exercise, and not getting too little or too much (yes, it can make you more tired) sleep, I'd go and see a doctor. Before that, try going to bed half an hour earlier every night, it can do wonders for you.

    I get about six if I'm lucky most nights, during term time anyway :eek: . I usually have too many things to be getting up to than going bed early. However, it doesn't really seem to affect me as it does to other people I know. If they don't get ten hours, in the morning they look dead on their feet, it's quite funny actually. I suppose sleep is one of those things that varies from person to person.

    Stress/anxiety has a huge part to play in sleep. You could get 10 hours of so called 'sleep' but your body can't rest properly so it makes you feel tired/weak the next day
