Fatigue
 
Standard Definition

Fatigue is a general condition that may be caused by many different factors or underlying illnesses and may be temporary or chronic (see Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). It may present mainly as muscle fatigue or may involve additional mental fatigue, depression or insomnia. If your fatigue does not have any obvious cause (eg. post exercise, cold or flu) you should consult with your healthcare practitioner for a full health assessment.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Every cell of the body requires energy to function, and every cell of the body produces energy from available nutrients via a number of biochemical reactions. If energy demands are increased or if the capacity to make energy is reduced, the body will experience fatigue. Mental depression, grief and other intense emotional states also require significant energy.

Enough nutrients and calories, sleep and activity, sunshine, clean air and water, and healthy emotional state are the fundamentals of good energy levels. The major causes of fatigue are listed below - this list is not exhaustive and does not include all possible disease states.
