wbesides medicines prescribed by doctor elcome to healthcaremagic
please get a medical check up
it is to found out whether you are anaemic
if you have excess blood loss during periods consult gynecologist
probably you are anaemic and during periods with blood loss you become too weak to remain active and energetic
do not delay get your self checked up and take treatment
take healthy high calori high protien diet wiyh plenty liquids besides medicines like iron preparations prescribed by doctor

General & Family Physician Dr. Shainaz Arif Kaware's  Response
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The common symptoms during periods are pain in lower abdomen;low back pain;mood changes;dizziness ;tiredness and your sleep may be due to tiredness & anaemia also but the problem is that some times you sleep without knowing it.So better consult a doctor & get examined to rule out if you are going towards any sleep disorder or is it just anaemia.To correct anaemia you can take iron tablets & even some multivitamin to reduce tiredness and see if the next period is better.Take care.
