As summer rolls ahead, it’s easy to feel exhausted at the end of the day. You may have biked, hiked or walked too much, or just tried to do too many things. If that feeling of tiredness does not go away, trim your work and social schedule back and make a point of getting more sleep. If you are still tired, you may want to see your doctor to see if there are any other issues.

If tiredness persists, prevention.com lists some things that may be happening. If the symptoms fit, you may want to see your doctor to check them out and take steps to correct them.
Dehydration - Inadequate water can make you feel tired and cranky. Researchers say about 75 percent of Americans fail to drink enough water daily. Symptoms can be headaches, swollen fingers, unclear thinking and dark urine.
Anemia - Tiredness is caused by a shortage of red blood cells needed to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Blood loss, internal bleeding, iron or vitamin deficiencies, cancer, kidney disease or rheumatoid arthritis can cause anemia. Symptoms can include chest pain, headaches, rapid heartbeat, and extreme weakness.
Thyroid Disease - The thyroid gland produces hormones that control metabolism. Too much can cause weakness and muscle fatigue, weight loss, increased heart rate, body warmth and thirst. Too little can cause weight gain, tiredness, muscle soreness, feeling chilled, and retaining water.
Diabetes - Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body cannot process sugar properly, which causes it to build up in the body. Fatigue is often one of the warning signs, along with extreme thirst, hunger, weight loss, frequent urination, blurred vision and irritableness.
