“Doc Why Am I So Tired All The Time?” - Wednesday, January 28, 2015

by Dr David Tadj


This is a question I am asked regularly by patients. The answer to the question, unfortunately, is often not straightforward. This is because tiredness, or “fatigue” as doctors prefer to refer to it, is a symptom rather than a diagnosis.  Unusually severe and prolonged fatigue is usually caused by an underlying medical or psychological problem. For this reason, I tell my patients, that regrettably I do not have an “energy pill” to treat their fatigue. The best way to address the patient’s fatigue is to find the underlying cause for their fatigue and treat that underlying cause. The fatigue should improve or resolve with treatment of the underlying cause. For more information click here
