COMMON CAUSES OF FATIGUE

COVID 19 AND POST VIRAL FATIGUE SYNDROME (PVFS)

If you have experienced fatigue following Covid 19 infection or other post viral related fatigue you will possibly have noticed experiencing waves of exhaustion that can affect you mentally, physically and emotionally. 

Many people are finding that once they have fought off Corona Virus, they are not bouncing straight back to full health. Instead they are finding themselves struggling with long-term symptoms such as overwhelming tiredness, aches and pains. This can prevent you from easily carrying out simple routine tasks. Learning to manage fatigue quickly following infection can lessen the chances of this turning into a more permanent and debilitating condition.

Here at Salus Fatigue Foundation we have worked with people who have experienced post viral fatigue and have found that by making changes to diet and lifestyle can often help restore long term energy levels.

FATIGUE AND CFS/ME

If you have experienced Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Fibromyalgia you will possibly have noticed brain fog, lethargy and sometimes unending fatigue that does not always improve with sleep.

Even the smallest thing, like getting dressed, can result in the need to rest.  Recovery from tasks and activities can take over 24 hours. The effects of ME can vary from person to person. Minor symptoms; you may be able to take care of yourself but need a few extra days off work to rest.  Moderate symptoms; you have reduced mobility and disturbed sleep. However, approximately one in every four people with a diagnosis experience multiple severe symptoms that have a huge impact on their lives. .

People have often been left with little or no support  and sometimes misdiagnosed.  It is not clear what causes fatigue after a brain injury. However it may be a consequence of direct damage to the brain causing it to need additional energy to complete simple tasks.

 We have found that making changes to diet and lifestyle can often help. Here at Salus Fatigue Foundation we have worked with people who have experienced fatigue as a result of a Brain Injury.
