What causes chronic fatigue?
Chronic fatigue, also known as chronic fatigue syndrome, is actually quite complicated. Generally, it can’t be explained by an underlying health condition, and it doesn’t seem to improve with rest. And you might already know for yourself that chronic fatigue can affect focus and memory. On top of all that, the cause of chronic fatigue isn’t known, but there are many ideas as to what could cause it, such as viral infections or just psychological stress. It may actually be a combination of factors.
It may be that some people are born with a predisposition to chronic fatigue that’s triggered by:
- Viral infection
- Trauma, like emotional trauma
- A problem with the person’s immune system
- A hormonal imbalance
Also, age and sex may be factors too, as chronic fatigue typically affects young to middle-aged adults and women.
How long does chronic fatigue last?
If you or someone you care about is suffering from chronic fatigue, then it may be causing social isolation, depression, lifestyle complications, and/or work absences, and you might be wondering when the problem will go away. The thing about a chronic condition like chronic fatigue is that it doesn’t go away easily or even at all. This is what makes a chronic condition so difficult to deal with in the long term. However, there are ways to relieve symptoms and address the condition.
What can a doctor do for chronic fatigue?
Here at Living Well Health Group, we’re very interested in the causes of conditions like chronic fatigue, so we practice functional medicine. This kind of medicine, nutritional counseling, or an alternative treatment may help you with your fatigue. We may be able to provide you with medication for a problem you have that’s commonly associated with chronic fatigue, like depression, orthostatic intolerance, or pain. Or perhaps your problem is that a certain medication you’re taking, like a herbal product or supplement, is causing or complicating your fatigue. It’s common for patients with chronic fatigue to benefit from counseling, addressing sleep problems, and exercise. In a study, people with chronic fatigue syndrome benefited from using an infrared sauna which we have at our clinic.
At our clinic, we can address many of the problems we mentioned above and network with other healthcare professionals if necessary. We can help to relieve your symptoms and improve your quality of life, so don’t hesitate to reach out to us to learn more about chronic fatigue and how we can help you with it at Living Well Health Group.
