In brief: See your physician

It would be wise to see your physician to have a complete history and physical exam with possible tests to determine the proper diagnosis.
There are many reasons why you may be tired which range from anemia, depression, mononucleosis, other infectious causes (bacteria, viral, fungal), hormonal (thyroid), medications (especially allergy meds), and behavioral.

In brief: Sleep disorder

If "always tired" means sleepy during the day or not rested by sleep, you probably have a sleep disorder (i'm presuming you've had blood tests to rule out anemia and hypothyroidism).
I recommend you seek out a sleep specialist.
