Stress Related Sudden Fatigue?! Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Well hi TSR, since you guys are geniuses I will see if anyone has any ideas.

    I have this thing where I very suddenly get extremely tired and lethargic during class, to the extent that I've nodded off sitting at my desk before. Sometimes it's just annoying but I push on and it goes away, other times it's so extreme that I can't focus my eyes on anything and I get quite confused about what's going on around me... like I can't remember what lesson I'm in or what I'm meant to be doing, my handwriting becomes illegible, I've even started writing things that don't make sense and I can't make sense of reading because I'm just SO lethargic.

    Does anyone else get this? For a while I thought it was to do with my diet or the amount of sleep I get but it only happens in lessons which makes me think it's stress related... blood tests have turned back nothing and it's getting quite upsetting when it happens so was wondering if anyone has any clue what I could do to prevent it? Cheers.
