Guest Post ::: Fatigue, Your Health & You, by James

Unusual Causes of Fatigue

Fatigue is something that everyone experiences after exertion or lack of sleep. If it is not relieved by bed rest or a reduction in activity, it might be due to a medical issue. It is important to visit a doctor if you are having any type of health problem. It is also important to educate yourself and stay on top of your own health understand any type of health issues you might face.

Sleep Apnea

Inadequate sleep can affect our concentration, our weight, and our ability to experience life to the fullest. Some sleep issues are not as apparent as something like insomnia. They might require an overnight sleep study to be properly diagnosed. In cases of sleep apnea, sufferers can actually stop breathing for up to a minute at a time. People with this condition will wake up feeling unrefreshed, have a difficult time concentrating, and difficulty awakening.

Candida Infection

Due to the overuse of antibiotics, a fungus called Candida Albicans can overgrow within the intestinal tract. This fungus lives within all of our bodies and is usually benign. It tends to become a problem in some people when the beneficial bacteria in our intestines that keep it under control is wiped out. This fungus can cause an immune reaction that leaves some people feeling fatigued, foggy, and disoriented. Treatment for yeast involves prescription antifungals and a low sugar diet.


Anemia is one of the most common causes of fatigue and can usually be diagnosed with a simple blood test. There are many different types of anemia including pernicious anemia, which is called by a lack of vitamin b12. Anemia is cause by lower than normal levels of red blood cells or decreased levels of hemoglobin which carry oxygen to the cells. Treatment for anemia depends on its cause, but in some cases b12 injection or iron supplements can relive symptoms.

If you have fatigue issues that last longer than a 1-2 month period, it may be due to a medical issue. Doctors can usually diagnose most illnesses with standard blood workups, but sometime the root of the problem may be more difficult to discover.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
