Unexpected energy loss, increase in appetite

I've lost 59 pounds. I got my sleep apnea taken care of a year ago, everything was going good. But in the last week or two, I've noticed a huge change in how I'm feeling. I'm constantly exhausted, I'm falling asleep in my car during my breaks at work (which I haven't done in ages), and I'm constantly hungry and eating. I work in a bakery, and normally can ignore the sweets, but I haven't been able to. Weight won't move at all. I generally hit my protein goal for the day, I take omega 3 fish oil, daily vitamins, and extra vitamin D every day.
Nothings really changed except I'm working 3-4 more hours a week. But I'm sooo tired. Normally I have the energy to get everything done: play with my kids, keep up my house, and get a workout in (I'm a single mom of two). Now, Im barely home from work before I crash for the night.

Is there anything anyone can suggest? I just switched over to a new insurance and won't get my card for a few weeks, so I can't make a doctor's appointment yet. But anything anyone can suggest would be helpful.

    It sounds like sleep disturbance to me. Can you cut caffeine in all forms after noon? Try a bedtime ritual.

    Is there a chance you could be pregnant?

    But if it's sudden, it's worth going in to talk to your doctor about it. There could be many medical issues causing it.

    You getting enough water?

    What's your bread/pasta intake? I'm no expert, but I hear bread products have this affect.

    In addition to what others have asked: Are you eating enough?

    There are SO many variables at play when it comes to energy levels.

    If this is a sudden change, I'd wonder if you have a virus or similar. Or pregnancy, as someone else suggested. If it doesn't resolve itself soon, see your doctor
