You have trouble sleeping.
Although there are many different things that can stop you from getting a good night’s sleep, wellness expert and chiropractic physician Dr. Kevin Kinney said that chronic fatigue can cause sleeping-related troubles, too.
“Regular tiredness is relieved with rest and sleep,” he said. “Chronic fatigue, however, is characterized by non-restorative and often interrupted sleep. This type of sleep leaves you still feeling drained when you awaken.”
You may experience aches and pains.
Chronic fatigue can manifest itself in physical symptoms, too, including swollen and tender lymph nodes, sore throat and joint pain, Dr. Kinney said.
“Research has shown a link between chronic fatigue and inflammatory chemicals produced by the immune system in response to psychological stress and chronic conditions such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, etc.,” he said.
