Most adults do ok w: 7.5 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Since you are getting 9.5 to 11 hours per night, that is not the problem. So there is a problem with your quality of sleep. Recommend medical eval to assess further. In the meantime, use good sleep hygiene. Retire ; rise same time each day. Keep bedroom dark ; cool ; use only for sex ; sleep. Turn off tv. No naps. Exercise regularly but not in late evening. No.

Many things: Many different health problems can make you feel fatigued with no energy all day. Common causes are thyroid dysfunction, sleep apnea and depression.
