Are you tired, sleepy, exhausted or fatigued? Whatever you call it, it is common. In fact, a recent report in The New York Post found that forty-two percent of Americans start feeling tired as early as noon. While many can blame a lack of sleep or poor quality sleep, the cause of persistent tiredness is not always easy to pinpoint. It is important to understand when it is occasional (and explainable) tiredness and when it is chronic fatigue.
What is Chronic Fatigue?
Chronic fatigue affects tens of thousands of people in the United States. It is most common among young to middle-aged adults, with women being the most frequently affected. Symptoms of chronic fatigue include:
- Fatigue or exhaustion that has lasted for six months or longer with other conditions that could cause fatigue being excluded
- Short-term memory problems
- Inability to concentrate
- Tender lymph nodes
- Sore throat
- Muscle pain
- Joint pain without swelling or redness
- Unusual headache patterns
- Feeling tired even after receiving adequate amounts of sleep
- Extreme exhaustion following exercise
