Physical Fatigue

Physical fatigue is the feeling of exhaustion that arises after a physical activity, such as exercise, manual labor, or other physically demanding tasks. Here are some details about symptoms, causes, types, testing, conventional treatment, functional medicine treatments, IV Drip therapy, and recommended supplements for support related to physical fatigue:


  • Feeling tired or exhausted
  • Muscle weakness or soreness
  • Reduced energy levels.
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Reduced physical performance.
  • Sleep disturbances


  • Lack of sleep or poor sleep quality
  • Overexertion or excessive physical activity
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Dehydration
  • Chronic health conditions such as anemia, thyroid disorders, or heart disease
  • Certain medications


  • Acute physical fatigue occurs after a period of intense physical activity and is typically relieved by rest.
  • Chronic physical fatigue occurs when physical fatigue symptoms persist for an extended period and may be associated with underlying medical conditions.


  • Physical examination to identify any underlying medical conditions or deficiencies.
  • Blood tests to assess nutrient levels, hormone levels, and identify any underlying medical conditions.

Conventional treatment

  • Rest and recovery
  • Medications to address underlying medical conditions.
  • Physical therapy to improve strength and endurance.
  • Nutritional counseling to address any nutritional deficiencies.

Functional medicine treatments

  • Identifying and addressing underlying root causes of physical fatigue such as chronic stress, sleep disturbances, or nutritional deficiencies
  • Implementing an individualized treatment plan that may include dietary changes, stress-reduction techniques, and supplementation.

IV Drip therapy

  • IV therapy delivers nutrients and fluids directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system, and providing immediate relief for physical fatigue symptoms. A combination of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, can be customized to meet individual needs.

Recommended supplements for support

  • Magnesium: essential for muscle and nerve function and energy production
  • Vitamin B complex: essential for energy production and red blood cell formation
  • Coenzyme Q10: helps to produce ATP, the body's primary source of energy
  • Iron: essential for the production of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the muscles and tissues.

It's important to talk to a healthcare provider before starting any new supplement regimen, as certain supplements may interact with medications or exacerbate underlying medical conditions.
