How old are you? If your in your mid 20's could be you test levels are dropping.
I went through the same thing then I dropped the junk out of my diet & started pumping iron. I'm in my 40's & feel like I'm 21 again & have normal sleep patterns & boundless energy. Also, your attitude in general will greatly improve.

Try some ZMA at night before bed it might help.
Also, cut out the caffeine first & foremost.

Do you eat meat? If so, try giving it up for a while, especially the red meat. That's stuff is just horrible nasty trash now and possibly the cause of your fatigue, as it has become for many these days (just look at how slow and sickly people look and move after a meat eaters lunch, looks like they are ready to fall over dead and sleep for the next week). Avoid all animal fats too. Eat a healthy natural vegan diet for a couple weeks and see if your energy levels pick up. Make sure you eat all the right foods for all the right nutrients. The meat farms are making everyone sick today, from the influenza viruses they breed every year, to the crap (literally, CRAP) that ends up in that factory processed junk these days. And don't eat any of those products they have been using recycled meat either.

I feel great lots of energy all the time and I am 43. I eat well, try to get plenty of sleep, stay off energy drinks, after 1200 pm, get sex once in a while and keep a positive attitude. But thats just me,.. what are you gettin at. something other than life drainin you? Negative energy will sap the life right outta ya for starters. gotta shake that sh*t. be happy don't worry , they say. find a hobby, maybe join a gym. But if you havn't got cash the go for long brisk walks. cheer up man .. it works.. yeah eat well also. ya got a computer.. do some research. Cheers..

I didn't expect so many kind replies, thanks everyone. I will try some of the suggestions with the diet change. With the way things are currently its hard to tell. Perhaps its a phase many people are going through, some of my friends have been just as tired. In a way, its a little creepy as well. I am working on getting my drivers license and this is a real pain to have such a lack of energy when i want to practice. I didn't feel ready when i was 16, and i know this is the only way im gonna be able to get out. Really been wanting to try going to a gym or study martial arts. I'm 22 age wise.

Yea I'm starting to agree with that more often now, really with all of the crud they put in food i don't know if eating a 100% healthy diet is possible anymore. Oh well, at least we can try. What I'm planing on doing is getting a mini fridge in here, setting it right next to my computer desk, and filling it with all sorts of fruits and veggies. I will at least attempt to eat them as snacks rather then this fried stuff i've been addicted to. Now it would sure help if my room was clean i could at least try working out everyday lol. I suppose this is what happens when you spend to much time in front of the computer, but i got no one to blame other then myself.

There in may lie your problem, a weird scheduule and lack of sleep. Everyting you describe is well within the range of normalicy for a human being. Do yourself a favor, sleep regular hours and you may notice a difference.

It could just mean that your body needs a rest. Perhaps you having been pushing it to much. To much sleep can also cause you to be tired.

I would get help if i could, but lack of insurance prevents me from doing so. Has anyone else been experiencing this.. namely for the past few weeks or so?

I feel like my energy is being taken from me by someone or something.

The odd thing is that i am bored, i should have plenty of energy. There is no reason i can see for not having any energy.

I feel the same as well, I can sleep for 9-10 hours a day and still wake up tired, much to the wifes annoyance.
My diet I think is to blame, I did cut down on the junk food and fizzy drinks and felt better for it, but now have gone back to fizzy drinks, they're cold is the only reason I drink them Gonna stop next week I think, saying that I donit have as much junkfood as I used to , I also cook my own meals so I know what additives are in them ( i.e. when I make it, there's none).
Vitamins are ok for a while, a healthy diet and regular exercise is recommended but a lot of the time I really can't be ar*ed to get up and go and do it.

I know a lot of people suffer from SAD syndrome, ( Seasonal Adjustment Disorder), and cant cope with the sun not being there, moods change to one of depression and angst.
Get a SAD light, and you'll feel better, stay off the junkfood, eat healthily and walk up the stars instead of taking the lift.

Some of this is probably cyclical. We don't realize how much we are affected by the natural cycles of our planet.

The elders knew and they were more in tuned and adjusted to the cycles. We on the other hand try to force the world to follow our own rhythm rather than adjust to what is normal and natural.

Same thing for you night workers. I too have worked nights for a long time and have found the secret is to just give in.

When you try to live in two worlds, you are only half your best in both. I just became a night walker. It was hard because my mind kept trying to tell me I was wasting precious day hours sleeping, especially on my days off. I tried to play by day and work at night but it too was killing me. After I just gave in, I found that I can still get a lot done during the early dusk and found a million and one ways to socialize and to entertain myself until the wee hours. I normally get to bed and sleep like a baby somewhere between 4 am or 6 and it still leaves me way over the amount of time I need for sleep.

Of course that is cut short on my work days because I do 12 hour shifts but I still get 7 to 8 hours on a normal work day.

Give it a try. Walking on the dark side is not as bad as you might think. I am talking physically; not spiritually. Just make sure your are only walking in moonlight and keeping you spirit full of daylight.

To some of the posters who have said that they still feel exhausted after a long night's sleep - have you considered the possibility of sleep apnoea?

Good point. If you have Sleep Apnea then it doesn't matter if you get 1 hour of sleep or 12 hours of sleep...you'll still feel exhausted. Matter of fact, the more sleep you get probably the more tired you will be. I've had Sleep Apnea all of my life and found the optimum amount of traditional sleep is 3.5 hours. Any more than that and it's just wasted time (although the patented Da Vinci Sleep Method of 15 minute naps every two and a half hours works best for those with Sleep Apnea, but it isn't very practical in today's society...try convincing your boss that your cat-nap is for purely medical reasons!).

THATS IT!!!!! I remember a few years back when I lived in the dorms, I used to eat only the fresh fruits and veggies and juice. Everybody used to call me "high maintaince" etc etc....I didn't give a crap because I felt awesome. But now, I eat everything...and I feel like crap. I am changing my ways and going back to what I used to be. Thank you my friend. This has been eye-opening.

Oh...and I'm 22 as well. Weird...its these crazy times.

You know its funny... since rest is associated with the root chakra...

Last year when I went to peru, I was going through sacral related problems and only the other day did I find out that peru was the earth's sacral center..

And now for the past couple months i've been obsessed with developing the root chakra.. and now here I am in california, to which I found out is the root chakra of the earth..

And yes.. if you think there is more to it then I can see that. As I myself have found the bed exceptionally comfy here.
I've spent near 14 hours in it yesterday, and not even sleeping. And when I'm awake, i'm just relaxing.

Also I've been doing some Psyc-K work with my friend here, clearing away thoughts in my subconscious that hold me back, and the root chakra is associated with clearing away things..

So you know.. maybe there is something guys. I wouldn't doubt it.

peace.

When I go through this the first thing I do is look at who has been around lately. Some people just drain you to be around for too long. The next thing I do is indulge whatever craving I have, the body knows what the body needs. After that generally I start doing things that I put off for too long, by the time I get done doing those it clears up.

Hi, this is my first post! I was so happy to see this here. I too have been having a very unusual experience concerning sleep issues. It has been going on now for about 8 weeks!
Initially it was insomnia; I would be up into the wee hours of the morning, then the next day I would be a zombie! Now it has turned into me sleeping 10-12 hours. Now I have studied sleep and sleep disorders and have done all of the things one is supposed to do when experiencing this. I have kept the room dark, slightly cool, no TV etc.., regular schedule, eating right, you name it! Nothing! As a sensitive, I began to wonder if something else was not going on here! I have a network of friends who are also sensitives from all over the country. I began asking them if they too were having any issues, and all of them said yes, though all were different, from waking insomnia, to sleeping all day, etc., The fact was/is all of them are having issues! Now in the past when something like this has happened, it meant that some type of information would be trying to "get through", and via meditation or dreams, many would receive that information. So, we all tried, many stating that they found it odd that they would have to resort to a focused meditation as they felt open to whatever needed to come through, but we did it, and nothing, and nothing on the dream front either? I am truly stumped! I would love it if more people would come forward and discuss what they feel like when this is going on, what they are thinking about or not, etc., Thank You for this thread!
