Extreme tiredness

I am constantly exhausted to the extent that I might be out during the day and i suddenly feel so tired I need to go to sleep and my eyes start closing.  I feel weak too  when I get this sudden tiredness and it is starting to get me down as this is not normal for me at all.
I have had blood tests which have all been clear, i dont smoke, ive stopped drinking caffeine, i eat healthily but I am not able to do my normal activities as i just don't have the energy.
Sleeping more makes no difference and this tiredness just suddenly hits me, what else could it be? I'm at the end of my tether as my life is on hold because of it at the moment, this has been happening since October!

You taking any vitamins? I would suggest a B 50 complex. The B vitamins help with stress, energy, depression, memory ect. ect. There water soluble so whatever you dont need body will excrete. Take care and I know how you feel. Thomas

Hey guys,

Thanks for responding.

I'm not on any medication,i'm not overweight and my sugar, iron, thyroid etc were all checked and are all normal so this is why I don't understand why i'd be so exhausted! :(

I take multivitamins too but they don't seem to help.

Has the doctor ruled out chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and anemia?

I do not have depresseion or anemia, my doctor has not really mentioned chronic fatigue syndrome but they're pretty much useless and because my blood tests were clear they don't seem to care too much now!
