A possibility on why you are always tired

At the beginning of year 12 I struggled heavily with being tired all the time. I found it hard to stay awake during lessons and found my eyes became heavy and it was hard to stay concious ( not because the lesson was boring ). I often lost energy and it was a chore to get out of bed in the morning ( as for most people ). Believe me when I say that I got plenty of sleep, not too much and not too little.

However, as embarrassing as this is to admit my mum and boyfriend would often tell me that I snore. Now, when I finally got my butt to the GP doctors. they did not really find a solution to it all. But as I did have hay fever and allergies to dust like most, they offered an explanation of, I was not actually getting the right amount of sleep. This was because I was not able to breathe therefore with out me knowing I would wake up and was incapable to sleep soundly.

As a solution to this, the doctor put me on a stronger dosage of hay fever tablets (as I was already taking cheap ones) as well as a nasal spray. These methods helped me feel less tired for the amount of time the prescription was supposed to last, however, after the tablets ran out I felt it all over again (the snoring did stop). But obviously people do not want to be dependant on tablets to not make them tired. Now I am determined to find things to make it through the day.
