I'm exhausted...

I have a serious dilemma. I'm a 17 year old male and do not have the energy my friends have. I don't really play any sport because I'm no good at it. I try working out alot though, in the gym and most of the time in martial arts classes. I enjoy it thoroughly but can't seem to have energy to do the things I want to. I've also recently become short of breath and feel like sleeping the whole time.

Even for school, I want to do work but my body won;t allow me.Please help...!

However, ther are a number of medical issues that should be looked at and your GP is the best person to advise on this.
