What is Fatigue?

Fatigue is a generalized feeling of exhaustion or a lack of energy. It's not the same as feeling sleepy or drowsy. You don't have any motivation or energy when you're fatigued. Sleepiness is a symptom of weariness, although it is not the same as fatigue.

Fatigue is a common symptom of a wide range of medical disorders, from mild to severe. It can also be caused by lifestyle factors such as lack of sleep, physical health conditions like anemia, or mental health issues like anxiety or depression.

If your fatigue continues with proper rest and nutrition, or if you sense it is due to an underlying mental or medical condition, see your doctor. They can help you figure out what's causing your fatigue and how to cure it.
