The Causes of Chronic Fatigue
Are you tired all the time? If yes, yours is a common complaint (though not a formal diagnosis). Part of the difficulty in overcoming chronic fatigue is that many things can cause it, from alcohol to anxiety, overcaffeination to medication.
Sometimes this exhaustion points to an underlying medical problem. Your doctor can narrow the list of possible culprits by asking about other symptoms and ordering blood work to check for anemia, hypothyroidism, diabetes and so on.
If you’ve already ruled out illnesses and conditions, the trouble likely lies in your lifestyle. Putting a spring back in your step could be a simple matter of tweaking daily habits: getting outside more often, for example, drinking more water or meeting the recommended target of seven to nine hours of sleep every night.
