Fatigue Q & A

What is fatigue?

Fatigue is a complex symptom characterized by constant lethargy and exhaustion. While you might feel tired at certain times, normal tiredness doesn’t measure up to the tenacity of fatigue as a symptom. It can come with other symptoms like memory impairment and musculoskeletal pain.

Fatigue can have a slow, drawn-out onset. You might not notice a difference in how you feel from day to day until you’re highly fatigued, and it significantly affects your productivity.

What causes fatigue?

When you come to Weingrow Wellness & Medical Center reporting fatigue and other adjacent symptoms, the team performs an examination and tests to figure out the cause.

The following conditions can cause fatigue:

  • Anemia
  • Alcoholism
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Obesity
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease

Sometimes the explanation is much simpler. You might feel fatigued because of a medication you take, emotional distress, illicit drug use, or consuming too much caffeine.

When should I book an appointment for fatigue?

Feeling fatigued can result from a number of factors, and a lot of them require an easy fix. For example, fatigue from stress or a lack of sleep might be manageable without a doctor’s help. You can examine your lifestyle and make a few adjustments to get your energy levels back on track.

The team at Weingrow Wellness & Medical Center encourages you to make an appointment for fatigue if you:

  • Lose weight unexpectedly
  • Have persistent trouble sleeping
  • Have a high temperature
  • Don’t know what could be causing your fatigue
  • Experience fatigue for longer than two weeks
  • Have other concerning symptoms, like vomiting blood or heart palpitations

You should pay close attention to the way you feel aside from your fatigue so you can be as accurate as possible in describing your symptoms and overall health. Any other symptoms you report can help direct your providers toward an accurate diagnosis.

How can I manage my fatigue?

Treatment for fatigue depends entirely on the underlying cause. Weingrow Wellness & Medical Center performs blood or urine tests if the cause isn’t immediately apparent.

If clinical treatment is necessary, the team selects medications and in-office procedures based on your diagnosis.

The team also examines your lifestyle and makes changes that can help preserve your energy. They might suggest getting more sleep, drinking more water, improving your diet, or abstaining from alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, and other substances.

If you’re feeling fatigued and can’t seem to boost your energy no matter how hard you try, call Weingrow Wellness & Medical Center or schedule your appointment online today.
