About Hormone Related Fatigue
If you constantly feel exhausted, you may be fatigued. This common symptom of perimenopause and menopause differs from normal sleepiness. Fatigue includes a constant lack of energy, mood changes and inability to perform daily tasks as usual.
Fatigue can many times affect both physical and mental states. While your body may suffer from drowsiness and muscle fatigue, you may at the same time begin to feel uninterested in important matters, suffer from forgetfulness, or have difficulty concentrating.
Menopausal symptoms such as sleeping disorders and hot flashes can make it difficult for you to function every day or to complete even the simplest tasks. Fatigue only intensifies these issues. Fatigue is more than just an occasional desire to nap. It is a weariness that doesn’t seem to go away.
Hormonal Imbalance & Fatigue
Low energy levels limit both the quantity and quality of things you do in a day. Waning estrogen (produced by the adrenal glands and the ovaries) found in menopause, often results in insomnia and night sweats. Diminished estrogen also causes irritability and mood swings, which furthers exhaustion. Decreased progesterone (produced by the ovaries) can also contribute to fatigue.
