Fatigue is a feeling of total exhaustion. It completely drains you, making even routine tasks, like eating or bathing, a challenge.
It’s normal to feel tired after a long trip or an illness, but it might indicate a more significant medical issue if you never have enough energy.
Dr. Becky Fox at Pennsylvania Dental Sleep Medicine works with teens and adults experiencing fatigue. She can help troubleshoot the source of your exhaustion and discuss possible contributing factors.
Issues that may cause fatigue include:
You might also experience fatigue because of teeth grinding (bruxism). Clenching your jaw at night increases your risk of muscle tension and pain, making it difficult to rest comfortably.
Make an appointment at Pennsylvania Dental Sleep Medicine if you experience fatigue and it doesn’t improve with a regular sleep schedule or changing sleep positions. That’s especially true if you can’t think of anything in your life that might account for your feelings of exhaustion.
Treatment of fatigue depends on various factors, including the severity of your symptoms and the underlying cause. If you have a sleep disorder, like obstructive sleep apnea, your provider might recommend oral appliance therapy or healthy lifestyle changes.
If you have fatigue, you might benefit from regular exercise, maintaining a regular sleep schedule, and eating a healthy diet. If necessary, Pennsylvania Dental Sleep Medicine can refer you to specialists and help coordinate your care.
