Since how long have you been feeling like this?

Do you you have any joints aches or pains or swelling associated with it?

Is there any rash or discoloration on the body?

Have you had any blood tests or other diagnostic evaluations for this?


Please provide more information.

Thank you.

Aching in all over body along with feeling tiredness and excessive sleepiness points towards some underlying possible autoimmune disease.

There are different clinical conditions which can present same way like rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue joint disorder, fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, etc et c and must eb carefully ruled out by comprehensive diagnostic evaluation.

You must get your thyroid function checked along with other pertinent labs in order to rule out possible autoimmune disorder.Soemtimes undiagnosed diabetes behaves same way too.

Best will be to see a rheumatologist or immunologist for consultation.
