Always tired and sleeping for more then 12 hours a day and waking up still tired, having trouble falling asleep even though I'm exhausted.
Need eval: would like more info, but here are some suggestions: recommend eval with your doc with labs to rule in/out endocrine and other health issues that affect sleep/fatigue. If the issue stems primarily from poor sleep due to insomnia/anxiety seek an eval of current sleep hygiene/sleep patterns - start with primary doc and consider a cognitive behavioral therapist with experience in insomnia (CBTi). ...Read more
Not Uncommon: Sedation after anesthesia may persist, depending on duration, body condition, surgery type, type and amount of drugs used. Even though fast acting anesthetics are commonly used, these drugs are "stored" in the body quickly (allowing for quick wake-up) but then slowly released over time to create an ebb and flow (redistribution) of sedative effect. Give it some time....It's unlikely to persist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

7 week old baby is often sleeping 4, sometimes 5 hours at night before waking. Should I wake him up after 3 hours to make sure he's feeding enough?
No: A normal, happy, growing 7-week-old baby follows the saying, "Never wake a sleeping baby." Normal babies at this age who happen to sleep through the night will just eat more during the daytime. Normal babies at 3 months of age can sleep through the night, meaning a 6-7 hour stretch without needing a feeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I tired chamomile,Valerian,melatonin,anti histamines,nothing worked. i cant sleep uninterrupted, i wake up 4-6 times within 7 hours of sleep.
Forget natural: Bottom line is that so called "natural" or non regulated, non-pharmacological products are not going to work for you. You need a formal sleep study to see why you can't sleep. I know we have lost faith in our health care system because it is all about mak.ing insurance companies rich, but the science goes on and science does have a solution for your problem.

73 y o good health 4 hours exercise once per week I need 12 hours sleep since several years. If I nap 2 hours I still need 12 hours...
Be seen: I would be seen for a good medical check up and also a sleep study. There are endocrine problems that can cause a person to need a lot of sleep such as in hypothyroidism, and there are also sleep disturbances that can cause it as well such as sleep apnea. If everything checks out, you might have to force yourself to sleep kess by using a strict schedule or you might choose to just sleep on! ...Read more
I am tired 47 hours after receiving general anesthesia. Is that normal? (i've been tired since i've woken up with it).
Possibly yes: Depending on the type or duration of the operation this can be completely normal. Anesthesia is not a normal sleep for a patient. Thus the sleep is not restful and the patient wakes up feeling tired. That combined with the physical damage from the surgery itself can cause sleepiness. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not Normally...But: Additional information in your profile shows you suffer from insomnia, is this correct? If so, then yes, being tired that long after waking, on a regular basis means you are not getting enough restful sleep. You can see your pcp for a possible sleep study to be done to help you. Otherwise, welcome to the world of the over-worked, under-paid and under-rested! cheers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been soo sleepy & fatigued lately. No matter how much I sleep ( usually 8 hours on weekdays) lastnight slept 9 hours, took a nap, still sleepy.?
Quality and Quantiti: In general for a good rest it's equally important not only how long you sleep also quality of the sleep. Make sure you talk to your dr with more details. Mononucleosis can produce tiredness. Poor sleep, like sleep apnea/snorring can do too. Many medications can cause drowsiness too. ...Read more

See your doctor: Sounds like you're putting in the hours, but still feeling tired. This could mean the quality of sleep isn't good. I'd avoid alcohol before bed, as well as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and those pm cold meds (they can put you to sleep, but it isn't great sleep). If you snore a lot, ask your doctor about sleep apnea. Your family doctor should feel comfortable evaluating you further. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
