Many things: can cause fatigue causing you to feel weak, sleepy, dizzy or feeling like you're going to pass out. First, consult your primary care doctor who can order tests to rule out factors like anemia, endocrine factors like Diabetes, thyroid diseases or what is causing your irregular periods. A low blood pressure for whatever reason can also explain your symptoms. Good luck.
