Congratulations we have almost made it through another winter; surviving the onslaught of the seasonal pathogens and viruses the scourge of winter.
Another scourge of the winter weather is that feeling of seasonal tiredness that may even extend to exhaustion. The British NHS (National Health Service) has published an interesting article on this with the acronym TATT (tired all the time).
TATT symptoms are one of the most common symptoms healthcare professionals deal with through the winter months; though people may be receiving adequate restorative sleep, one in five people feel unusually tired and one in ten experience prolonged fatigue according to the Royal College of Physicians and it appears to be more of an
issue for women than for men. It is unusual to link these symptoms to another physical problem; it appears to be
linked to an accumulation of numerous small stressful experiences that just chip away at your sense of well-being
and energy levels.
If you are experiencing these TATT symptoms it is important to touch base with your healthcare professional. The TATT symptoms may be linked to anaemia, thyroid, diabetes, food intolerance, sleep disorders, overweight, underweight or numerous other medical conditions; the likelihood of an underlying medical condition increases if you are experiencing TATT in combination with other changes in body function (symptoms). Other factors that may result in TATT are a change of lifestyle, workload, bereavement, emotional shock, relationship breakup, and pregnancy, especially in the first 12 weeks.
