Disabling Effects of Chronic Fatigue

Everyone gets tired once in a while, but chronic fatigue is different from occasional fatigue or tiredness related to exertion or lack of sleep. If you suffer from chronic fatigue, you already know what we are talking about.

It Gets Worse But Doesn't Go Away

People with chronic fatigue suffer from extreme tiredness and lethargy that does not go away. It gets worse with physical exercise and even mental activity. It does not improve with rest.

Chronic fatigue can be a symptom of other physical or psychological conditions, from digestive disorders to depression. It can also be a primary condition, called chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).

Tracking the Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue

While chronic fatigue is profound to the patient, it is difficult for others to observe and assess. That is why it is valuable for people suffering from chronic fatigue to keep a journal of their condition.

A daily log of how the condition affects you can help document that fatigue is truly a disabling condition. Write down how many times you have to take a break during the day, how long each break is, how many naps you have to take, and how long you sleep or rest.

It can help to make note of activities that were once easy to accomplish that are now challenging or impossible for you. It is also important to get a medical diagnosis of, and treatment for, your fatigue.
