Fatigue is a common sensation typified by chronic or acute feelings of tiredness, weariness and general lack of energy. The sufferer will constantly feel tired. Lifestyle factors such as hard physical or mental labour, stress or emotionally taxing periods might be the cause of someone’s patient’s fatigue, otherwise the fatigue could be indicative of an underlying condition. Treatments include relaxation methods, lifestyle modifications (such as quitting smoking or dietary adjustments), physical remedies, exercise, massage, herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurveda and naturopathy.
