I know that the more you sleep, the more you feel tired. but this applies when you sleep almost a day too? cause there were times when i almost slept an entire day, and i still felt tired. doctor never prescribed me anything, it told me its natural, but how can it be natural if i don't do sports at the moment, is not like i stressed myself out the whole day, and yet i was incredibly tired. did it ever happened to you?

Actually my friend never happened to me because the nature of my work, wake up 6am in the morning and coming back 7pm in the night so feel tire and ready to sleep after couple of hours rest... I think you must change you habbit like take a walk or swimming, then take a good food and sleep on time put alarm clock for the morning and that's it... make it routine... see you around

hi, actually, never it happen that to me, do you take any vitamins? or maybe you are lack of water in your body, try to drink a lot of water every day, and observe it.

There was once it happened to me when I was in high school but not now. I also have a friend like you and he sleeps when he reaches home and he sleeps longer than everyone.

Hmm... Incredibly sleepy... Is it possible that your sleeping way later than your average sleeping time? Because ive once tried to be like 6 hours from my regular sleeping time and ended up feeling very tired and sleepy for the next 2 weeks. Ive been so tired that i even ended up sleeping in the toilet of the days... So may not be that your stressed but just that your body is not used to you getting the time to sleep?

This happens because you are accustomed to sleep a lot and the body demands lots of sleep. I am the same type as well, I like to sleep a lot and still I am very tired. You mentioned that you don't do sports. If you had, you would have more energy and you wouldn't feel so tired. When I was younger, I played lots of football and I slept less than now. However, I was full of energy. Now I don't do much sports or any other physical works, and I feel powerless and very tired lots of times. So the answer is to make sports and accustom to less sleep. That way you will have more energy and feel much more better. I have to do the same as well.

I think you should focus more on the quality rather than the quantity of your sleep. The required amount of sleep varies from person to person. What you're saying here is nothing near normal. The amount of sleep should be reduced. You need to do some exercise and take up healthy diet. Sometimes mental pressure can disrupt normal sleeping pattern. When you sleep the blood supply to your brain reduces gradually. The temperature of your body drops. At this time there is the least amount of blood circulated in your body, the amount that is needed to keep you alive. Now if this goes on for abnormally long amount of time, you may actually feel weak and disoriented through the rest of the day. I suggest you better change your doc, enroll in a gym or yoga center, and go see some dietitian and get yourself a diet chart depending on your BMI.

Maybe you should try exercising to increase your metabolism so that your body will get work out and in an active mode. Then try to change your life style like too much relaxing wouldn't be good. You are only 16 you can change by now its never too late.

Maybe you're working too much in the day. You get tired physically? or intellectually? I've been tired physically and the reason was that I was doing much sport.

Sleep relaxes the body and body, the more you sleep more the relaxation. When you wake up, it takes some time for both body and mind to get into active mode. This is often misread as more tiredness and people go back to sleep, only to wake up tired again. Relax, just give yourself a luxurious stretch and start off on a walk! You will find your energy coming back to you. If the problem persists, do go to the Doctor's and get a check up.
