My husband just asked me if I was okay because I look pale. I haven’t had much sleep and I’m trying to fight it and stay awake until bedtime. My question is does being tired make you pale?

Fatigue can cause a person to appear pale, yes. But it could have also simply been the lighting or lots of other things that affected the apparent color of your skin. Sometimes I'll catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror and think "wow, I'm rather pale (or red)". But then I'll turn a light on (or off) and it's normal.
