    Question:   I am a 33-year-old male. I do not smoke or drink. I am in good physical shape and I get around 6-9 hours of sleep a night. The last couple of years, I have been exhausted most of the time. I am having trouble staying focused at work because I am just plain wiped out. I feel like I could sleep for a month. But when I get home after work I seem to get a second wind and do not feel so tired. Could this be diet related or lack of something in my system?    Dr. McLaughlin's Answer
