Fatigue Q & A


What is fatigue?

Fatigue is a condition that gives you a persistent feeling of weariness and weakness. When you’re fatigued, you have little to no energy, which doesn’t resolve with sleep or rest.

Men and women are typically diagnosed with fatigue when they’ve experienced symptoms for at least six consecutive months. Unfortunately, fatigue is often a chronic condition that causes problems for months or years.


What are the symptoms of fatigue?

Symptoms of fatigue vary from person to person and run the gamut. Some of them are:

  • Lack of concentration
  • Brain fog
  • Frequent headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Irritability
  • Dizziness
  • Sleep problems
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Daytime drowsiness
  • Blurry vision
  • Sleep that isn’t refreshing
  • Muscle aches
  • Recurring sore throat.

What causes fatigue?

Underlying medical conditions are often the culprit when you have fatigue. Some of the common causes of fatigue include:

  • Viruses
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stress
  • High blood pressure
  • Anxiety
  • Anemia
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Systemic inflammation
  • Immune dysfunction
  • Chronic infection
  • Adrenal fatigue
  • Cancer

Fatigue is also a side effect of numerous prescription medications.


How is fatigue treated?

Your physician works diligently to discover the root cause of your tiredness and lethargy. The New York Medical Vascular Care team is zealous about treating the underlying reason for your fatigue.

Your provider starts with a thorough physical examination that includes a full spectrum of blood, urine, and saliva lab work. They also talk with you about your health history and your current condition. With this information, your physician customizes a treatment plan that may include:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Diet modifications
  • Vitamin and supplement recommendations
  • Thyroid therapy
  • Hormone balancing
  • Physical therapy
  • Exercise modification
  • Meditation
  • Mindfulness

You’ll meet with your physician periodically so that they can gauge your progress. Depending on your condition, your provider may recommend a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea or other conditions interrupting your sleep.

You don’t have to struggle with low energy and lack motivation when effective solutions are within reach. The New York Medical Vascular Care team can help restore your vitality and quality of life. To learn more about treatments for fatigue, call the office or book online today.
