      I have had a devil of a time dealing with sleep since the time change last week. I feel like it is never time to go to bed and I try to fight sleep to go to bed at the time I think the clock says I need to go.

      I really hate to ask this question, but have you been tested for COVID? Everyone I know who has had it has experienced extreme fatigue and feeling like no amount of sleep is enough.

      I think most of the world has gotten off its sleep schedule since COVID came along and we have been off our routine. I have found that depression and anxiety have caused major sleep issues for me. I will go a couple of weeks with insomnia and then a couple of weeks where I come home, make dinner, shower and go straight to bed.

      If a sleep study is in the cards for you, I do recommend having one done. My sleep and overall fatigue are much more manageable with a CPAP.

      I don't know if any of this will be a good answer to your question, but I am just throwing some things out there that have been sleep issues for me.

      @K2013, I'm glad the nodule is small ... hard not to worry ... I have one that's a little larger in my lung that the doctor isn't concerned about since it stayed stable between scans. So ... they didn't think that had anything to do with your fatigue?

      My husband has been battling this fatigue for years - I talked him into getting a stress test and they discovered he needed a quadruple bypass but his fatigue and falling asleep didn't improve afterwards. they've tried all kinds of things with his meds ... I don't think amphetamines will be in his cards though - he has PTSD and I think the amphetamines might amp him up a bit too much temper-wise (I guess the docs feel the same because this has been going on for at least 5 years or so and they've never tried to prescribe amphetamines).

      Well, I took one of those written tests today to find out what diet/exercise might help me best to feel better, rejuvenated. Test result was that while I’m 67, my real age is 80. Geez.
