This question is about me and I'm just hoping to get some advice, tips or information before I decide if I should go to the doctor, because I just don't have the money for the co pay to go if this is normal.
I have been very tired these past few months. I could go to bed at 11 PM and sleep until 8, when I either wake up because I here my son or because my alarm went off and I finally heard it. (That is 9 hours of sleep.) I do have an alarm set to go off, but I just hit it, usually without knowing I hit it and keep on sleeping. I even put my alarm where it isn't in an easy reachable place and the same thing happens. Some days I can go to bed at 10 and wake up at 8. Same thing. I set my alarm to go off at 6:41, figuring that if I hit it once, then I'm up by 7. If I go to bad at 11 and wake up at 7, that is 8 hours of sleep, which should be perfect, but I never wake up. Last night I probably fell asleep around 10:30 and woke up at 8:45!!! Needless to say, luckily my son was still sleeping, but I don't like him sleeping that long, so he probably won't nap today. (But that's a different story.)
I shouldn't be any more tired then usual. I've been exercising since the beginning of December, I've started taking a multivitamin and the only prescription I'm on is birth control. I didn't do any more yesterday then on any other day. I've already been to the doctor twice to get my thyroid tested. Once was 5 weeks after I gave birth and once was a little over a year later and they both came back normal. I was also tested for things like cholesterol, anemia, blood sugar... and they all came back fine. So like I said, I was just kind of wondering if anybody had some thoughts about this. Thanks
