Is feeling exhausted your norm, and not just a temporary exception such as feeling depleted after a long workout or a long day at work? It haunts more people than most realize.
It can seem mysterious and, therefore, become extremely frustrating to feel burned out all the time and yet not understand why. However, there can be many root causes of it, including mental and physical burnout:
On this website you can find Peace, Joy, Love, ways to refresh your body, mind, spirit, and soul.
Depression and ongoing grief can weight so heavily on the mind and emotions that physical exhaustion manifests
Too much alcohol consumption, the abuse or over-use of many prescription drugs, and the use of illegal drugs can all cause severe burnout
Allergies such as those that cause asthma-like symptoms and hay fever can cause the "wet towel folded inside the head" feeling
Anemia such as an iron deficiency
Insomnia, narcolepsy, and obstructive sleep apnea all rob you of your needed sleep, leading to exhaustion
There are several illnesses and diseases that can cause exhaustion, too:
Serious and lingering infections including AIDS, a heart infection (bacterial endocarditis), parasitic infections, mononucleosis, and tuberculosis
Major debilitating diseases like congestive heart failure, cancer, kidney failure, or chronic liver disease
Anorexia, malnutrition, or other eating disorders
Arthritis, even pre-adult juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
Lupus or other autoimmune diseases
Then, there are particular medications which are known to bring on drowsiness or fatigue in many users such as allergy medicines' antihistamines, sleeping tablets, blood pressure medication, diuretics, and steroids.If you are using any of these medications, look up their possible side effects to see if they are possibly causing your state of fatigue and consult your doctor if you think that you might need to get the medication changed.
Then there is CFS, or chronic fatigue syndrome. This can be tricky to recognize, for it starts off seeming like the flu, but then lingers for half a year or longer. A doctor will always try to see if there is anything else that is possibly causing your exhaustion before she'll diagnose CFS. CFS is very difficult to treat, for there's not much known to make much of a difference with it, not even getting extra and consistent rest and sleep.
You are likely to have CFS if:
You're having mental energy problems like memory loss, low ability to concentrate, or confusion.
You have a constant sore throat.
The lymph nodes in your underarms or neck are constantly tender.
You have persistent muscle or joint pain with no obvious cause.
You consistently get "strange" headaches.
No matter how much sleep you get, you wake up feeling as if you barely got one or two hours' worth.
