Fatigue: Why You Shouldn’t Ignore It – OHR #423

Fatigue shouldn't be ignored

Does fatigue make your day a painful chore?

Do you wish you could just take a break at 10 am and curl up for a nap or when the alarm goes off pretend its Saturday and roll over for another hour or two?

From many years of dealing with people with fatigue I can tell you that you can get better.  It could be a mix of infections, hormone imbalances or poor sleep hygiene, but it is solvable.  We do extremely specific tests to determine what is causing the problem and solve it.  When you’re bright and energetic the world looks a lot friendlier and your confidence to conquer it doable.

If this is you or someone you care about, call us for an appointment. We CAN help.

Have a great week,

Dr. David I Minkoff, MD
