Fatigue By Michaele Hernandez


Definition Nearly everyone struggles with being overtired or overworked from time to time. Such instances of temporary fatigue usually have an identifiable cause and a likely remedy. Chronic fatigue, on the other hand, lasts longer and is more profound. It's a nearly constant state of weariness that develops over time and diminishes your energy and mental capacity. Fatigue at this level impacts your emotional and psychological well-being, too. Fatigue isn't the same thing as sleepiness, although it's often accompanied by a desire to sleep — and a lack of motivation to do anything else. In some cases, fatigue is a symptom of an underlying medical problem that requires medical treatment. Most of the time, however, fatigue can be traced to one or more of your habits or routines.


Causes Feelings of fatigue often have an obvious cause, such as: Alcohol use or abuse Caffeine use Excessive physical activity Inactivity Lack of sleep Medications, such as antihistamines, cough medicines and cold remedies Unhealthy eating habits
