Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?
It is estimated that over half of the population experiences chronic or generalized fatigue. Fatigue is a symptom that everyone experiences from time to time. However if you're experiencing debilitating fatigue on a regular basis, it's time to visit your health care professional. Fatigue can simply arise from not enough sleep and overwork. It can however be indicative of something more deep seated such as an immunological or hormonal disorder. The most common causes are stress, insomnia and depression. Various malfunctions in the endocrine, cardiovascular and digestive body systems may also cause fatigue.
