Is this normal or should I visit a doctor?

Usually I sleep for like 5-6 hours each weekday, but more at the weekends. I felt very tired all the time so I tried to sleep way more, 8-9 hours even, but I still don't really feel better. I'm always tired, a bit slow, and could fall asleep instantly in some cases. I can't figure out what's wrong with me, what do you think?

I think you have a lack of sleep. 5-6 hours is not enough for a normal nightrest you should have 8 hours at least. If you do this for a long time you will tire out your body and mind more and more. I think you should slow down, try to sleep more and it will take a long time (weeks or months) till your body is used to that. If there is nothing wrong with the way you eat (vitamines/fruit) you don't have other problems there is no need to visit a doctor. Find a way to relax, and if possible sleep a bit more in between if your body needs it.

Hi Tibor, I am not a medical doctor so I should not give advice about such things. If you are not feeling better in a few days, see your family doctor. Blessings.

This is quite normal. During weekdays you would be quite occupied by works or study etc which you mind will make our mind and body feel fresh and awake. However, during weekends, because we are relatively free during those days. So our brain would not force you to be awake. You would feel more relaxed and want to rest more. And as you rested more, meaning you sleep for 2 and above hours more than you usually do, it will make you feel more sleepy or tired. Because your body is not used to that length of sleep time.
