Living with ongoing fatigue and tiredness can feel very difficult. It is a symptom that you might experience on its own or as the result of other conditions. It can feel very difficult to cope with the everyday demands of life when you are struggling with fatigue and to understand how to balance your energy levels. It can lead to difficulties with anxiety and depression and you might feel worried about coping or feel hopeless.
