Definition

chronic-fatigue-syndrome-300x200Fatigue(also called exhaustion, tiredness, languidness, languor, lassitude, and listlessness) is a subjective feeling of tiredness which is distinct from weakness, and has a gradual onset. Unlike weakness, fatigue can be alleviated by periods of rest. Fatigue can have physical or mental causes. Physical fatigue is the transient inability of a muscle to maintain optimal physical performance, and is made more severe by intense physical exercise. Mental fatigue is a transient decrease in maximal cognitive performance resulting from prolonged periods of cognitive activity. It can manifest as somnolence, lethargy, or directed attention fatigue.

Medically, fatigue is a non-specific symptom, which means that it has many possible causes. Fatigue is considered a symptom, rather than a sign because it is a subjective feeling reported by the patient, rather than an objective one that can be observed by others. Fatigue and ‘feelings of fatigue’ are often confused.

Medical Marijuana Efficacy

Studies show that Cannabinoids found in medical marijuana can greatly help relieve symptoms of fatigue, especially for people suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Relief from headaches, a heightened focus, muscle pain relief, an improvement in energy level and anti-depressive tendencies are just some of the positive effects that cannabinoids can have on a patient with fatigue.
