go see your doctor asap, it can be that you are lacking some essential vitamines. do some medicals exams, blood and urine.

if you also think it can be a sucubus, which cant be discarded right away,im sure people here more experienced than i am in the area, can give you some advice.

I've had this problem for 10 years now. I just get up from 10 hour sleeps and I just feel drained throughout the latter half of the day. Hell, I get 6 and I can't even function properly.

I would see a doctor, but when I stated this info 10 years ago, the only answer they had was "exercise more". Needless to say, as a 10 year old I got plenty of exercise.

Now I'm 20 and I've just suffered with lethargicness for years. I don't exercise at all, but I feel that it wouldn't help anyway. It's something beyond just that. Hell, I can just go out somewhere and then come home feeling really exhausted and I didn't do anything.

It was much worse when I was working because seeing as the job sucked, all I did was constantly feel tired. This after around 10 hours of sleep everyday.

I don't get it.

Too much sleep can be bad for you.

"Eight hours' sleep a night has long been touted as the ideal length of time to spend under the duvet but new research suggests it could shorten your life.
A study that included more than a million participants found people who sleep eight hours or more died younger.

Those who only managed four or less hours in the land of nod were similarly affected but six or seven hours a night was found to be conducive to a longer life.

The research, carried out by scientists at the University of California, showed a clear association between long duration sleep and high mortality rates. "

I had the same problem a year ago. I went to the doctor and did some sleep studies.

What it was for me is sleep apnea. At times while sleeping my blood oxygen level was at 50%. Turns out I was fighting for breath every night and it catches up to you. I was falling asleep all the time.

I got a CPAP machine (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) . Its a machine with a mask you wear over your nose at night and blows positive pressure into it and stops your throat from closing while sleeping (snoring).
Ive been using it for a year and feel like a million bucks. I felt like a million bucks the next morning the first time I used it.

You should go in and be checked out for it.

I've been feeling this way for quite some time and it's been getting worse. I read in the NYT recently that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome may be caused by a virus.

I've also been excessively thirsty. Granted, I live in Denver (high altitude) and it gets REALLY dry in the winters, causing more dehydration, which is a key component of fatigue.

Has anyone else felt completely derived of energy lately? You feel that your energy is being used, yet for what purpose you are unsure.

All my body wants to do is sleep. Energy drinks no longer help, when i do sleep, my schedule is weird and i cannot seem to achieve deep sleep.

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've felt exactly the same way lately. I'm not sure why. I've slept 20 of the last 24 hours I think. Anyway back to bed. Hopefully this will end soon.

It's just lack of sleep, lack of exercise, and stress. You'll get over it if you accept those real problems instead of blaming the mumbo jumbo.
