Get enough sleep
• Always get up at the same time, even on weekends. Your body will eventually get the hang of the steady sleep schedule.
• Go to bed earlier than normal if you need extra sleep. As long as you’re getting up at the same time every morning, it’s fine to have a flexible getting-to-bed schedule.
• Keep naps short. If you snooze more than half an hour during the day, your body will want more, and you’ll be groggy when you wake up.
When to see your doctor about fatigue
If you feel tired ‘all the time’ even after you’ve taken steps to treat fatigue, make an appointment to see your doctor.
If you have fatigue along with sudden onset of abdominal pain, shortness of breath, or severe headache, seek immediate medical attention.
Other chronic symptoms that might require a doctor’s attention are muscle aches, nausea, depression, fever, or difficulty seeing.
