I lead a pretty regular life, I don't smoke, don't drink alchol and I don't make use of drugs. But, but I go to sleep late.

Sleep hygiene?: While there may be at least several good reasons for someone your age to feel tired all the time I think the one that you mentioned needs to be looked at more seriously than anything else assuming you are otherwise healthy. And that is the fact that you go to bed "late."in order to feel good all day long you must go to sleep at a decent hour and wake up at a good hour as well. Try that and see. ...Read more

I'm always tired,  severe anxiety&stress. I'm on Valium and drink alcohol weekly (not alcoholic and dont take them together), doc said normal,  is it?

Fatigue, stress: if your fatigue, stress, and anxiety are adversely affecting your functioning you should pursue further medical opinion. Valium and alcohol can lead to dependency (and potential respiratory failure if used together) and do not help your fatigue and anxiety in the long run. There are effective ways to evaluate and treat your symptoms. ...Read more

And found nothing abnormal! then we could look at "stress" and psychological issues... But there are many endocrine conditions that can lead to your symptoms and they must be eliminated from the list of possibilities first! ...Read more
