Tiredness to much sleep

Posted , 8 users are following.

after finally getting my hormones balanced I feel happy in myself apart from the fatigue. I don’t let it affect my daily life but I can sleep 8_9 hrs a night and wake up feeling watery eyed and lethargic,I am  ok once up, I practice yoga 4 times a week and daily walks and eat a fairly good diet don’t drink alcohol but I do like sugar !. 

Does any one feel like this after a good 8 hrs so many my friend have poor sleep and not as much as myself. 😴

    I can sleep 10 to 12 hours and still wake up feeling tired. I can put in about 3 hours of cleaning and other simple tasks and feel worn out and ready for a two hour nap. It is rediculous compared to the high energy person I used to be. But I think when we have all these changes going on we really need the extrabrest. Our bodies are fighting hard to regulate and failaing. So for me at least...sleep it is...lots of it.

    I have so many things to catch up on around the house...this house is not what it used to be either. But I will continue to just take this one day at a time. With a lot of naps to get me through. Lol!

    hi joanne,

    I envy you for sleeping 8-9 hours! I have not slept more then 4-5 hours in years. I am constantly fatigued and always feel like I'm coming down with something. I can feel fine and then take a shower or vacuum the floors and then all of the sudden i am bone tired and can't keep my eyes open. it feels like I'm just plain crazy and with everything else maybe i am, lol. i wish you continued happy sleep!

    Joanne,

    I am sleeping on average 8 - 9 hours as well (sometimes up to 10 - 12) and yet for the first time in my life I am not popping out of bed - far from it!!!!. I do what is only necessary. My sleep is interrupted by about 3 hot flashes that wake me up tossing and turning - maybe more? 

    I'm just tired! I don't drink alcohol but I like sugar as well, LOL! This all hit for me awful in June. The tiredness is such a difficult feeling to describe!!! I just got my hormone results and am extremely low on Progesterone. I am staring with a natural progesterone cream to see if this helps with all of my symptoms as I've read many of my symptoms are due to my number being ridiculously low. After reading a ton on this forum  - I see insomnia can be awful - so right now I am trying to be grateful for the symptoms I don't have and accepting the ugly ones I do.

    I’ve just started a post about the fatigue and yes can get 10 hours sleep and it’s never enough! 

    I’m trying to reregulate my clock as going to bed at 8pm means waking up too early but just can’t keep eyes open . 

    Waiting for my BHRT to fully kick in I’m sure when I’m feeling less nervous and anxious I’ll relax and the anxiety won’t use up all my energy.
