Do I Have A Sleeping Disorder?

    poliq All is well

    I get super sleepy throughout the day even after getting 6-8 hrs of sleep. Do I have a sleeping disorder?

    You might one of the people who need a solid 8 hours of sleep every night, like Fitzgerald suggested. Low blood sugar is a very unlikely cause, that would make you cranky, dizzy, but not sleepy.
    If you're obese (not very likely you being young and working out), discuss Sleep apnea syndrome with your doctor, which can be diagnosed by sleep registration, like Ganti suggested. There is also a condition named Narcolepsy, both are well treatable.

    The idea of a sleep disorder is worth checking out. You can actually buy a watch that will track your sleep cycles and is nearly as good as a medical sleep study in determining if you're getting enough deep sleep, or just waking up constantly.
    But also check your diet. If you're eating sugar or simple carbohydrates (white bread, cereal, pastry etc.) first thing in the morning, you'll have low blood sugar about two hours later. Eat more sugar then, and be even worse two hours later. Try to maintain a steady sllep schedule. Keep the windows open, so as to feel the slow wind. To avoid the noise, put a soft pair of good ear plugs so that your sleep don’t get disturbed. Invest in a nice, soft comfy pillow and mattress (here are some useful reviews https://sleepmentor.net/best-latex-mattress/ – find the best one)Turning down, or off, lights helps your circadian rythym adjust and kick in the melatonin. Bedrooms are for sleeping, and occassionly getting lucky; no TVs, cell phones, or computers! Check into that.

    .Sleep disorder is a big problem. It is really hard because a person can not live normally. I had a similar problem. I could not normally relax, I did not sleep well and slept badly because of this, I was tired all day and wanted to sleep. I began to visit a psychologist. My doctor said that you need to learn to relax every night, forget about the problems. I decided to try to visit the sauna several times a week. It helps to relax and relax. It helped me. I decided that it would be nice to make an indoor sauna at home. I turned to the Sauna manufacturers Australia http://sdsaustralia.com . They made me a sauna. I was pleased. Now I can relax whenever I want.

    It looks like you really have a sleeping disorder and I think that you really need to do something about it. The best option is to visit a doctor but you can also try some natural remedies like cbd oil for example. You can investigate this site to learn some more about it if you feel like that's a nice option for you.

    I think that depends on what time you go to bed. If that happens really late, than even after 8-10 hours of sleep you won't feel really energetic and cheerful.

    How long do you feel this? If you always slept ok and such problem started not so long ago, there should be a certain reason for it and I suppose that during time you'll feel ok again.
    And I'm not sure that it's really a sleeping disorder because you mentioned only two symptoms from many and there are more of them. For example, the other signs of sleeping disorder include sleepwalking/sleeptalking, restlessness (it's connected with unbereable tossing and turning in bed), inability to fall asleep at all or for a long time, snoring and often waking during the night. Do you have any more of these symptoms?
    Also it may be connected with hormonal imbalance, such hormones as adrenaline, cortisol, HGH https://www.nexelmedical.com/hgh-injections/hgh-injections-for-sale , aldosterone and epinephrine have a great affect on your sleep so maybe you need to check them too. Anyway only a doctor can define clearly the reasons for your problems with sleeping, don't take any pills till you get a professional medical consultation.
