What Is Fatigue?
Fatigue is a symptom of many health conditions no matter how serious the issue. When fatigue accompanies a condition, it leaves the patient feeling lethargic and unable to properly function. It is different than simply being tired as it interferes with daily activities as those who suffer are unable to concentrate or finish even the simplest tasks. When this happens, it is important to talk with Dr. Falcone about fatigue as she has the ability to distinguish between drowsiness and fatigue.
What Causes Fatigue?
Because fatigue is a symptom of many health conditions, it has many causes including the following:
- Physical and mental illness
- Iron deficiency
- Persistent pain
- Sleep disturbances or insomnia
- Thyroid issues
- Overuse of drugs or alcohol
- Adrenal fatigue
- Nutritional imbalance
- Chronic infections
Even though some medications may cause fatigue, others such as antihistamine simply cause drowsiness. There are other issues, but these are the most common conditions to which fatigue can be attributed.
What Are the Symptoms of Fatigue?
Even though fatigue is actually a symptom of an underlying medical condition, signs and symptoms may indicate someone is suffering from fatigue. Here are some of the more common signs of fatigue:
- Prolonged tiredness or drowsiness
- Headache that is always present
- Body aches
- Weak muscles
- Slower response and compromised hand-eye coordination
- Loss of appetite
- Reduced immune system function
- Blurry vision
- Inability to concentrate or remember things
- Lack of motivation
How Is Fatigue Treated with Functional Medicine?
Everyone may suffer from fatigue at one time or another in their lives. It can be as debilitating as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or less serious but burdensome and difficult to handle. With functional medicine, the objective is to find the underlying cause of the fatigue and treat that rather than just a symptom of fatigue. Treatments may involve therapies such as massage and other physical therapies as well as nutritional therapies including diet, exercise, and supplements.
What Is the Cost for Treating Fatigue with Functional Medicine?
At the Falcone Center, the cost for treating patients in Philadelphia, PA, Maple Shade, NJ, and the surrounding area is based on the appointment. Deposit is due when scheduling initial appointment.
It is important to note that the Falcone Center does not accept insurance as it is considered an “out-of-network provider” by most major insurance plans. While we cannot file insurance claims on our patients’ behalf, we can easily provide them with receipts and the necessary paperwork to file for reimbursement. We suggest that our patients determine whether their plans cover functional medicine prior to making an appointment.
Why Should I Choose the Falcone Center to Treat My Fatigue?
At the Falcone Center, our goal is to alter your course to allow you to lead a better quality of life. Treating the patient rather than the symptoms is our philosophy. Because we want to determine the underlying conditions causing the fatigue, our approach is to treat that medical condition while easing the fatigue.
How Do I Become a Patient at the Falcone Center?
