Tired eyes

Hi,
I am a 27 year old female. I have been vegetarian (no meat, eggs, chicken or fish) for the last 15 years. I weigh 58kgs.

My problem is my tiredness at work. I can''t keep my eyes open in meetings. I find it easier when i eat so I always snack.
I have a desk job but alot of meetings. I also take lunch break.
I get 7 hours of sleep a night and don''t battle to sleep.

Is this tiredness normal? Is it something i eat? and should i continue eating to stay awake?

No, the tiredness is not normal.

I doubt very much if it is from something you are eating - it may rather be from something you are NOT eating!

You need to go to your doctor and have a thorough check-up, to ensure that you do not have some underlying medical condition, which could need attention.

If that is normal, then you should get to have the quality of your sleep determined at a sleep laboratory.

I forgot to mention I have low blood pressure. Almost every time I check it ranges around 90-100 / 60-80.

Thanks Doc, Should it be a normal doc or a dietician?
