allergies could be the culprit, but so could an overworked liver, or eating too late, or a number of other reasons. if you think you have allergies, talk to your doctor about getting a blood test done. not the dermal skin prick test, but a blood test to test also for IgG reactions. everybody has food allergies, most are undiagnosed or unrecognized as such. if your doctor won't do the test, there are plenty of labs that will do it for you.

Have them test you for vitamin D deficiency.

I'm actually going through the exact same thing right now. But I'm not like that all the time. I think it only happens during season changes. It's strange, but I think that's how my body reacts to climate change (like right now when winter turns into spring time). The only thing I actually like about this 'syndrome' is how easily I fall asleep and how wonderful my sleep is at night. I usually have a hard time sleeping through the night. Not during my 'lazy season change syndrome'

I gave up coffee and it's best thing I have ever done. I have way more energy. I also started eating meat more reguarly and that has helped also. Giving up coffee and caffiene and eating more meat. Best two things I have ever done.

Ahh where should I start.. just like everyone else said it could be anything. I have fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome..been treated for low B-12 and low iron on top of countless other things.

I would suggest a sleep study first because they can diagnose quite a few things in which other doctors are going to poke and prod you and tell you its still in conclusive. They have a machine to help with sleep apnea and a medicine call provagil to help with you issue if need be.

If that doesn't work I would suggest a Nurologist..they will take about 6 vials of blood and run lots of different tests for all the vitamins and other nutrients you might be missing..and they can tell you if you may have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or something else fun.

If you are really curious try a infectious disease doctor..sounds scary but they have seen almost everything under the sun and while they may not treat you at their clinic they will point you in the right direction.

Few things my docs have suggested are Vitamin B-12 shots they give you right at your family doctor..you will know within a few days if they are working. Also Vitamin B Complex you can get it anywear (walmart, meijers)..its a yellow vitamin that helps with energy...take it as soon as you can get yourself up in the morning and usually it will give you a little boost. Not "the cure" or anything but may help til you can figure out if what you are feeling is normal or you need a little help.

Good luck

also, if you are under extreme stress, vitamin B def is common.. vitamin b12 is common if you are over say... 40 (depending on many other factors though).. so you may want to consider looking into a b complex and a sublingual b12. if your stomach acid is low (a very common problem) and your intrinsic factor is low, you may not be able to absorb b12 by ingesting it...
if you need help with all of this, feel free to contact me. i treat people all over the country, and use a non invasive lab test...
but if you have some one locally, these are things to possibly explore.
good luck!
If you're low on zinc, will taking supplements rectify the situation?
