Weakness and fatigue

Weakness is a lack of physical or muscle strength and the feeling that extra effort is needed to perform daily activities that require you to move your arms, legs, or other muscles.

Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness, exhaustion, or lack of energy.

Both weakness and fatigue are symptoms, not diseases. Because these symptoms can be caused by many other health problems, the importance of weakness and fatigue can only be determined when other symptoms are evaluated.

The complaints of weakness and fatigue are among the most common and challenging problems encountered by clinicians. Because patients may use these terms to describe a variety of symptoms, the physician should attempt to obtain a precise understanding of the problem.

Weakness and fatigue are nonspecific symptoms that may be encountered in a bewildering number of medical and psychiatric disorders; they also may be the expected physiologic consequence of normal human activities.

Many factors, complex and sometimes apparent, are basic contributors to the Weakness & fatigue state. Among them:

Hypovitaminosis: Severe depletion of nutrients in the body. Low levels of essential vitamins and minerals create a vulnerability.

The environment: Noise is a powerful factor. The incessant bombardment of cacophony in the home, the workplace, and outdoors contributes heavily to weariness and fatigue.

Modern music, the blaring of radio and television that seems to be so overwhelming a part of everyone's life, can be a serious source of bodily stress.

Stress: Physical and psychological tensions eventually reduce the body's ability to ward off fatigue. The vulnerability created induces anxiety, fearfulness, and apprehension.

Routine work: Housework, factory work, operating computers, and practically all other endeavors that deal with a constant flow of sameness provide the possibilities of fatigue syndrome. Rest periods and scheduled diversions are necessary.

The night person: Anyone out of synchronization with the work-a-day world is especially vulnerable to unusual fatigue. That individual, whose circadian rhythms do not match those of most people, experiences a stressful juxtaposition of day and night. The syndrome accounts for the inability of these individuals to "come to life" until evening approaches.

Sexual hostility: This can be a common instigator of fatigue. Men or women who resent or resist conjugal relations with a particular partner and who are incapable of acknowledging or resolving those emotional conflicts are often swept by fatigue. The proverbial "headache" may be more than a hackneyed excuse. Ambivalence can lead to fatigue.

Menstruation: The menses and its drain upon the female psyche and physique can be genuinely wearying. This is especially true in women whose nutritional defenses are low and who lack proper levels of B vitamins

Nutrition: A factor in physical and mental disease, nutrition is a feature player in creating vulnerability in both sexes of all ages to the ravages of fatigue. Strong fortification against such weariness would be a truly well-balanced diet that ensures copious quantities of all essential vitamins and minerals.

In summary, weakness & fatigue is not a single entity but can be a "grand concealer," deceptively disguising various forces that go astray in the human body. It should be taken more seriously than the use of an alcoholic drink to "relax."
