Fatigue may be diligent yet it is surely not consistent. Starting with one day then onto the next, or even one hour to the following, it can be difficult to anticipate what your level of fatigue may be. You may feel lively for a considerable length of time at once. At that point, without warning, find yourself exhausted, scarcely ready to get up. Studies shows that people, including Vietnam comfort women, do not know how they consider their fatigue normal or not. Here are the faces of fatigue. Normal fatigue is generally caused by overwork or staying out too late, and is easily remedied by a good night’s sleep or a cup of coffee. Everyone, with or without MS, experiences this type of temporary tiredness. Another type of fatigue, sometimes called short-circuit fatigue, can develop easily in individuals with MS. Working out with weights, extensive walking, or other repetitive motion may fatigue your muscles more rapidly, making your body feel weak and tired. Rest and recuperation usually resolves this type of fatigue, although it may take a day or two to recover completely.Fatigue caused by depression can be a bit more difficult to identify. This is because depression can produce fatigue, but fatigue can also produce depression. If you are feeling listless, sad or apathetic to those things that usually interest you, you could be experiencing depression-induced fatigue. The good news is that both can be treated successfully with antidepressant medications.The most prevalent type of fatigue in people with MS is sometimes called lassitude. Almost like a spell has been cast upon you, lassitude can sneak into your life and persist for days or weeks at a time. Simple daily chores can seem like monumental tasks. As quickly as lassitude appears, however, it can disappear, leaving in its wake the mild, pervasive fatigue that seems quite manageable in comparison. Many things can trigger fatigue. It can be a side effect of medication. It can be brought on by an extreme change in temperature. Chronic or intermittent pain, inflammation, or urinary infections can all be contributing factors. Recognizing the specific cause of your fatigue can be an important first step in fighting it effectively.
