Many adults will experience fatigue at some point in life. Lack of physical and emotional energy and motivation can impact your overall quality of life. If left untreated, this chronic condition may have serious consequences to your health. Fatigue treatment from Dr. Daniel Benhuri in Beverly Hills can help you achieve long-lasting relief from your symptoms.
Symptoms of Fatigue
Fatigue can create a multitude of physical, mental and emotional symptoms. Physical symptoms may include headache, sore muscles, impaired immune system, slowed reflexes and appetite loss. Mental symptoms can include impaired decision making, poor concentration, short-term memory problems and hallucinations. Emotional symptoms can include irritability and low motivation. Men and women can experience different symptoms from each other.
Fatigue can be considered a chronic condition when symptoms last longer than six months. Chronic fatigue syndrome can result in disruptive sleep, muscle weakness, headaches and memory or concentration issues. These symptoms can develop gradually over time or show up suddenly. Seek emergency treatment if you experience fainting, chest pain, shortness of breath, bleeding, abdominal pain, severe headache or rapid heart rate with your fatigue.
Causes of Fatigue
Fatigue can result from a combination of health conditions, lifestyle habits and medications. Your primary care doctor may review your family medical history and perform diagnostic tests to determine the root cause of your fatigue. Treatment will depend on the result of these tests. Your customized treatment plan may include medications, therapy and lifestyle changes.
This condition can be a symptom of something more serious impacting your health. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, vision problems, abdominal pain, muscle weakness or thoughts of harming yourself or others.
