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.
