Everyone experiences tiredness at times – however fatigue is more incapacitating type of weariness and exhaustion. The affected persons often complain of being very tired with no energy. Although, it is not a matter of one day, fatigue develops gradually, and you start feeling physical, emotional or mental exertion. It also interferes with normal daily activities, social relationships, productivity, family life and work performance. The pattern of occurrence of fatigue is erratic. It can develop out of the blue at any time of the day. You start feeling worn out despite getting enough sleep. A lot of factors contribute to fatigue such as buildup of health issues, long-term conditions, life experiences, inadequate sleep, emotions, poor diet or stressful events. Based on these factors, fatigue is classified as a physiologic fatigue, chronic fatigue or secondary to other health problems. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC181235/)

There are still no specific medical treatments available for fatigue. The treatment strategy generally involves an identification of etiologies responsible for fatigue. Physical exercise, certain medicines and cognitive rehabilitation are usually part of the management of fatigue.(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4465180/)
