Fatigue And How To Deal With It


People tend to describe fatigue as an experience of tiredness, a complete lack of energy, and feeling exhausted. Fatigue can include feeling weak or worn out.

Fatigue can affect nearly every aspect of a typical day.Fatigue can adversely affect the ability to work, have fun, enjoy life, or think and feel, as well as how a person functions on basic physical and emotional levels. Fatigue can also force caregivers to make changes in their work status to help take care.

Unlike everyday tiredness, resting does not affect fatigue related to a health condition or treatment. 

Fatigue is made worse by depression, emotional distress and stress.

The effects of fatigue do not have to be an inevitable part of illness or treatment. Options are available to help minimize or relieve the symptoms of fatigue.
