Post Virus Fatigue – 5 Reasons You Are NOT Recovering

Post virus fatigue has a tendency to linger on.  Anyone that has ever dealt with the flu can vouch.  Yet, even the most severe flu associated fatigue will rebound in time.  But what if it does not?  What if the fatigue drags on for months, and even years.  You will likely start to think you are one of the unfortunate ones who seems destined to suffer from unrelenting fatigue.  And the likelihood from comments I have heard from those just like you is that you have tried resting, napping, medications and even taking control yourself.  Unfortunately, you only feel marginal improvement at best.

Rest assured your fatigue is real.  And viruses are a well established cause.  The logical connection is that the virus is causing the fatigue.  This seems even more logical if your doctor has found evidence of a virus or you have a history of one, for example “mono” (infectious mononucleosis).  In reality, this connection may not be as straightforward as it appears.

Push Through Fatigue or Sleep In – Will You Make the Wrong Choice?

Should you push through fatigue or sleep in?  Chances are, you are making the wrong choice.  Fatigue can feel overwhelming as is, so the last thing you want to do is make a choice that keeps you spiraling down the path of low energy.  Too many times I have heard, just push through fatigue.  But did pushing through fatigue ever actually help the fatigue?  Let’s take a deeper look.

Push Through Fatigue and Just Get it Done

I do admire a “go-getter” attitude, but sometimes it can get us in trouble.  We tend to throw caution to the wind for the purpose of achieving an end goal or being able to check off items on our “to-do” list.  While this helps us feel better about what we accomplish, it does not do much for fatigue.  In fact, over time, this approach is typically making fatigue worse.

Approach your want to get things done like a bank account.  If you only take from the account and never replenish the funds in it, you end up with no monetary reserves, and likely in debt.  If you only take from your body’s energy account and don’t give back to it, this is called energy debt.  Energy debt is the result of not getting the right nutrients in to produce energy while also not allowing the body the opportunity to recover each day.

There has to be a better way.
