Tired all the time
« on: September 03, 2014, 04:11:27 PM »
I've been dealing with non stop anxiety and stress for about 2 weeks now.  Aside from my work, I'm not motivated to do anything.  I just want to be at home, resting. Can stress contribute to feelings of tiredness and lack of energy or should I look for another explanation?

Stress, anxiety and especially depression can make you feel completely exhausted.

Stress/anxiety is one of the top reasons to be exhausted and tired and have a lack of motivation. I don't think there's anything to worry about: however there are things that can make the exhaustion and tiredness worse that you could have a look at to make sure nothing else is contributing to it.

-If you're on any anxiety medications a lot of them have side effects of exhaustion/tiredness
-If you're low on your B12 a side effect is most always exhaustion
-Sometimes if you're not fuelling your body correctly and eating properly your body will be unusually tired because it's not getting the proper nutrients it needs.
-Make sure you're getting enough sleep (but not too much - because that will always make you tired).
-Maybe go get some blood work done and make sure all your levels are good just to rule out anything being too low that would be contributing to this.

I'm sure you're fine and it's definitely your anxiety that's playing a large part in the exhaustion, just try to fuel your body right and double check and make sure everything going on inside you is at the correct levels  :yes:

Thanks for the reassurance, guys.  I tend to think it's stress related too.  But it wouldn't be HA if I didn't also worry about nasty deceases.

Fatigue is one of the biggest issues when it comes to anxiety and stress. This is so normal.

Lack of motivation and fatigue mostly defined me when I was at my anxious worst. I pretty much went back to bed after my daughter went to school, after she got home at noon, laid around and waited for my husband to get home so I could go to bed. It's very sad, but unfortunately not unusual for us going through a bad spell.

Hope you feel better!
