Tiredness Throughout - Know Causes Of It!

Tiredness isn't just a result of working too hard. Tiredness or fatigue can be described as a lack of energy and motivation and can be physical, mental or a combination of both. Tiredness is often a symptom of a much larger health issue such as anemia, diabetes, thyroid disease or heart diseases. Some of the common causes of fatigue are:

1. Lack of sleep - Fatigue is one of the first symptoms of sleep deprivation. A minimum of 7-8 hours of sleep is needed on a daily basis to keep a person healthy. Quality of sleep also plays a major role here. Patients of sleep apnea also commonly show signs of fatigue. 

2. Bad dietA balanced diet helps maintain your weight and keeps you energized. Eating a lot of junk food can make your blood sugar levels fluctuate. When these sugar levels drop below normal, the person is likely to feel tired and drained out. 

3. Anemia - Anemia is a condition where the body suffers from a lack of iron. Without enough iron the red blood cells in blood cannot carry oxygen to all parts of the body. This makes the heart work faster to pump blood and can make you tire easily.

4. Caffeine - Caffeine is said to wake the system up and boost energy levels. However, like sugar, caffeine makes energy levels fluctuate. As the level of caffeine in the body reduces, the person will begin to feel tired. Not drinking enough water along with your coffee can worsen this situation. 

5. DehydrationWater is necessary not only to keep the body hydrated but also to keep it energized. This is because the loss of fluid in the body can result in lowering the blood volume. This makes the heart work harder to pump oxygen to the brain and other parts of the body. 

Fatigue is often not diagnosed till very late. There are many reasons for this. Primary amongst these are:

  •  Age: We assume that we are feeling tired only because we are growing older. However, the cause of fatigue may have nothing to do with age.
  •  Gradual onset: We are often not aware of how tired we are until we reach a point where we are completely drained out. Fatigue has a very gradual onset and is rarely noticed in the early stages. 
  •  Misinterpretation: Complaints of feeling tired are often mistaken for lack of motivation and laziness. 

The easiest way to prevent fatigue is to maintain a regular waking and sleeping schedule and to eat a healthy diet. Also, try and be physically more active.

I get very tired at the end of the day. I hardly get some time for myself due to tiredness. Any solutions to it?

Hye, thanks for the query. Tiredness is very often because of lack of energy due to poor eating habits. You have to feed your body what and when it needs. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Exercise at least thrice a week.

Because of that dust allergy I suffer from continuously sneezing and become very tiredness.

Dr. Prithviraj Singha 95% (14739 ratings)

Homeopath, Murshidabad
Dear lybrate user, dust allergy occurs due to the production of histamine in blood. This production of histamine is provoked by the entry of certain foreign substance in our respiratory system through the air we inhale. However if you are suffering from dust allergy from a considerable prolonged time then you should take the following medications:- 1) 5 drops of homoeopathic pyrogen 1000, thrice daily in empty stomach. 2) 30 drops of homoeopathic mother tincture cassia soph q, thrice daily, after meals, in a glass of water.

Please get your hemoglobin checked, because it is possible you may have anaemia, which could be the reason for tiredness. If there is no anaemia detected, then please eat adequate diet with proteins like eggs and a lot green vegetables. You also must be aware that in hypothyroidism one should avoid soya containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard and coffee as these items affect treatment. Please inform the hb level.
