Fatigue Cause no. 7: Caffeine Overload
Too much caffeine can cause jitteriness, increased heart rate or palpitations, high blood pressure, anxiety, and insomnia. In addition, after caffeine wears off, users can ‘crash’ and feel fatigued.
Fatigue Cause No. 8: Hidden UTI
Common symptoms of urinary tract infections (UTIs) include pain or burning during urination, or the feeling or needing to urinate urgently or frequently. But UTIs can also cause fatigue and weakness.
Fatigue Cause No. 9: Diabetes
Diabetes can cause fatigue with either high or low blood sugars. When your sugars are high, they remain in the bloodstream instead of being used for energy, which makes you feel fatigued. Low blood sugar (glucose) means you may not have enough fuel for energy, also causing fatigue.
Fatigue Cause No 10: Dehydration
We all know water quenches thirst, but did you know a lack of it could make you fatigued? By the time you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. While any liquid will help hydrate you, water is the best option.
Fatigue Cause No 11: Heart Disease
Have you found yourself fatigued by everyday activities such as shopping, cleaning, or climbing stairs? When the heart is less able to pump blood to all of the body’s tissues, it conserves resources by diverting blood from the limbs and instead sending it to the vital organs. This can cause fatigue and may be a sign of heart disease.
Fatigue Cause no. 12: Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia
Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are conditions that can cause persistent, unexplained fatigue that interferes with daily activities for more than six months.
FAST FIX FOR MILD FATIGUE
Some of us are simply tired with no medical cause. The good news is that exercise may give us a boost. Studies consistently show that people who engage in regular exercise feel less fatigue than those who don’t. When exercising for energy stay in the low to moderate exertion range, such as walking, yoga, or light resistance training to fight fatigue.
