Can fatigue be prevented?
Fatigue as a symptom can occur as the result of many causes and therefore,
prevention is not an issue. More importantly, the early recognition of fatigue
will allow a person to seek medical care and potentially have an earlier diagnosis of
the underlying cause made.
Sometimes, symptoms like fatigue arise gradually and it is difficult for the
person to realize that there is a problem. It may take an outside perspective
from a friend or family member to appreciate a difference in function. Self-awareness of gradual decline in body performance is often difficult as
a person makes repeated small accommodations to complete daily activities.
