Tiredness!!

I just cannot get enough sleep. I am terribly lethargic. I have a hectic work and cannot afford to feel like this! Sometimes it feels as if I can only start operating properly after 11:00 in the mornings (although I get up at 5:00 or 5:30). I also feel extremely irritable and get frequent headaches. I’ m not sure if I have a vitamin deficiency, blood sugar/pressure (always on the low side) problem, or if I just need a holiday & #61514

Hallo Esme
Have your blood iron levels and your thyroid hormone levels as well as blood sugar tested. Other causes could be pregnancy or menopause. Depression (burnout) can also cause tiredness.
