I have an office job, sitted on my desk for almost 8 hours a day.

I usually walk for 10-15 minutes at lunch time and do the same when going home in the end of the afternoon.

I'm 34, not overweight (but will be if this doesn't get better), have some allergies, but nothing major. I have a balanced diet (not perfect, but ok by the standards).

I sleep 7 hours or more a night.

Why don't I have energy by the end of the day to do anything?

I'm so desperate that I started taking vitamins supplement, which I've never done before.

Will it help? Or is this all in my mind?

Hi Pandora and welcome,

How long has this been going on for you? If it's more than a week or two, be sure to discuss with your medical provider.

And what vitamin supplement are you trying?

Is there anything else going on in your life lately? any added stress?

Knowing the answers to the above question may help others offer some suggestions here.

Hi!
What you are describing is EDS which can be caused by many things. If this has gone on for some time now and you are experiencing it on a day to day basis you would best be served by getting checked out by your Personal Dr. or if your insurence allows go straight to a Sleep clinic or specialist.
I went the other way round because all the other things besides EDS led me to think it was a brain tumor or something like that. So it took a long time before I ended up in the right place to get the right diagnoses.
