Hmmm: 43 and menopausal, did you have a hysterectomy?
Menopause, is associated with hot flashes and night sweats that can cause you to leave rem sleep which makes you tired all of the time. You should talk to your doctor about this as you may need hormone therapy for the sleeplessness and the vaginal dryness.
