Fatigue and weakness are often used to describe the same thing. But they actually are different. Both weakness and fatigue are symptoms, not diseases. Because symptoms can be caused by many other health problems, the importance of weakness and fatigue can be determined only when symptoms are evaluated. Finding and addressing these symptoms early improves your odds on successful treatment. Discover what to look for below.
Weakness is a lack of physical or muscle strength and the feeling that extra effort is required to move your arms, legs, or other muscles. General Weakness often occurs after you have done too much activity at one time. You may feel weak and tired, or your muscles may be sore. These sensations usually go away within a few days.
