My problem is I am always feeling fatigued in the late afternoon and evening, as if I am ready to fall asleep?

age 23
Filipino on Guam
i’m a 2nd year middle school teacher
I take joint soother and ferrous sulfate prescribed by a doctor. The 2nd medication is only for when I have my period.

My problem is I am always feeling fatigued in the late afternoon and evening, as if I am ready to fall asleep. My job requires a lot of energy (walking around, talking loudly) and I have work to take home in the evenings usually. I try to eat well and sleep well and have good relationships to manage stress. I feel so tired every weekday that I automatically want to fall asleep once it’s 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM for a nap that usually lasts 20-40 minutes. I’m not sure if there is another underlying cause. I’m concerned since I’m young too.

Your help and consideration is highly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to question
I do not think you have any thing abnormal as these symptom is a normal response to your efforts at work and what you may need is just getting some vitamins specially omega 3 and B1,2,6,12..
Every one needs rest specially after such physically and mentally demanding job..

There is no symptoms that can refer to a problem in your body.
Vitamins and minerals deficiency can do this fatigue.
Don’t worry .
Eat plenty of vegetables and drink plenty of water.
Omega3 from olive oil and nuts is good for you.
