Why do I feel tired and lethargic?
Q: I am 26 years old male and living in sharing accommodation. I am a bachelor and doing a sedentary job for almost three years. I am taking lunch and breakfast outside and dinner at home. Nowadays I get tired every soon. Sometime due to tiredness I feel feverish at night. A couple of days back I got treated for high fever and I am alright now. I have checked my blood pressure and haemoglobin and they are within normal limit. What could be the reason behind my weakness?
A:The possible causes of weakness could be:
- Post viral asthenia/weakness after a fever episode.
- Nutritional deficiency including vitamin B12 and calcium.
- Thyroid disorder, sugar related disorders, chronic infections.
- Worm infestation.
- Work and travel stress.
