Doctor: HelloThanks for using “Ask The Doctor” for posting your query.Being always tired can be due to many different reao sons. it would be wise to get a complete blood count and a thyroid assessment done. Anemia and hypothyroidism are the two most common causes of frequent tiredness. Further it could be a depression as well as depression can present with easy fatigue-ability as the prominent symptom. It may be occurring due to imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain. The neurotransmitters like serotonine, nor-epinephrine, and dopamine.
