Fatigue Q & A

What is fatigue?

When you’re feeling exhausted, weak, or tired, you may be experiencing fatigue. Typically, fatigue won’t resolve with sleep or rest, but rather persists and may even worsen.

Fatigue robs you of your strength and energy. It can keep you from performing well at work, school, or in your daily responsibilities. Many men and women with chronic fatigue withdraw from social situations and limit their time away from home.

On its own, fatigue is not a serious health problem, but in many cases, it can be a symptom of a more troublesome underlying condition.

What are the common causes of fatigue?

There are a host of reasons you may be fighting fatigue. Some common causes are:

  • Diabetes
  • Digestive issues
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Thyroid problems
  • Anemia
  • Viruses
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Depression
  • Certain medications
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems
  • Stress
  • Grief
  • Anxiety
  • Pregnancy

Fatigue can also be a consequence of poor diet or inadequate sleep.

What are the symptoms of fatigue?

Some of the symptoms associated with fatigue are:

  • Sore throat
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Sore muscles
  • Brain fog
  • Irritability
  • Moodiness
  • Lack of motivation
  • Drowsiness
  • Blurry vision
  • Loss of appetite
  • Chronic sleepiness

Because the symptoms of fatigue are emotional, physical, and mental, fatigue can become debilitating if left untreated.

How is fatigue treated?

Since fatigue can be accompanied by a fluctuating range of symptoms and be caused by a medley of factors, Dr. Naiden uses a combination of a thorough physical exam, your health history, and blood and urine tests to pinpoint the underlying cause of your fatigue. With all the facts in hand, she customizes your treatment plan.

  • Diet modifications
  • Nutritional guidance
  • Vitamin supplementation
  • Hormone replacement
