I have struggled with fatigue for several years. I usually need 9-10 hours of sleep a night and am dead tired by the afternoon. I finally went to the doctor last year and found out there were several things contributing to my fatigue.
1) Chronic Depression
2) Extremely low Vitamin D levels
3) Recurrent Epstein Bar Virus (reactivated mono)
If you decide to go to the doctor, you might ask them to check for these things too. As far as treatment goes, I am taking Wellbutrin, 2000 iui Vitamin D, and B12.
