Do you feel tired, even when you’ve gotten plenty of sleep the night before? Does your mind feel “foggy” all day long, no matter how many cups of coffee you have? Fatigue is a phrase that refers to a general feeling of exhaustion or a lack of energy. It’s not the same as feeling sleepy or drowsy. When you’re tired, you don’t have any motivation or energy. Sleepiness is a symptom of weariness, although it is not the same as fatigue.
Fatigue vs. Tiredness
Do you ever wonder if your low energy is actual fatigue or just being tired? Tiredness is what occurs at the end of the day or after certain activities and is typically solved by sleep. Fatigue on the other hand is tiredness that isn’t solved by sleep. It is a lack of energy every day that is unusual and/or excessive. Fatigue has a negative effect on a person’s daily life.
