Everyday stress from family and career, from shift work or frequent travelling, from especially high pressure in one’s professional or personal life can gradually lead to fatigue and exhaustion in anyone. That’s normal. One should seriously address the causes of this if these symptoms get out of control, continuously occur and severely impair one’s daily life.
Mental reasons or particular stress at work are not always the catalysts of chronic fatigue or even burnout, meaning great physical and mental overload. Possible bodily causes of the chronic occurrence of early fatigue and burnout symptoms are often overlooked.
Burnout and chronic exhaustion generally do not occur in isolation. People affected by these usually have other symptoms simultaneously. These may include sleeping disorders. That’s why it is difficult to recognise the causal chains of burnout and chronic exhaustion.
Constant exhaustion, loss of motivation, languor and lethargy, irritability and loss of interest in many things can lead to a feeling of being burnt out. Yet the word “burnout” as an umbrella term for the symptoms described is also used as a buzzword. People who have to perform a lot of work want clarity of the actual causes of their symptoms.
It is often overlooked that burnout or similar symptoms occur at the end of a long period of development, and may be the result of complex physical disorders that have developed over a long length of time. Only afterward does the psyche react with overstress. This condition is somewhat preceded in a manner that was not, or was barely, noticed. A disorder of physical malfunctions has thus reached the psyche.
