No Diagnosis with Sleep Problems

I often find that without enough sleep I am unable to focus on anything past being tired. I have previously been diagnoised with an anxiety disorder, but I feel it is being treated well. I had mono almost 3 years ago now, and ever since, I have had problems with excessive sleep and still not feeling rested.

Through intense exercize, I am able to get a relief to sleep more deeply, but it can be hard to exercize two hours a day six days a week (I regularly exercize an hour a day every other day, but little difference is made).

The problem really comes down to having a lot of trouble focusing. I am unable to get quality work done unless I take a nap prior to work so I can feel fully rested and able to concentrate.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this might be? I am sure it's not depression as I have suffered in the past but do not suffer now, and I can only wonder if it is a sleep disorder of some sort, but no doctor has ever even suggested it.

  • How old are you? Can you list your diet the best you can? Do you drink alcohol? Do you drink caffine throughout the day? Do you take a multivitamin daily? etc etc... try to list your daily habits as best you can if you don't mind.
