There are many reasons anxiety may cause chronic fatigue. This may include feeling tired and emotionally exhausted. Here are some of the most frequent causes and cures of fatigue:
1: The body’s energy reserves more severely and more rapidly than usual
The body is an amazing machine that is able to manage its own affairs mostly in spite of ever-shifting external and internal circumstances and external conditions, but also comes with an “enhanced emergency preparedness mode” whenever we require a “boost of focus and energy” when we are faced with a stressful event.
Stress can refer to:
Anything that causes the body to go beyond the point of balance.
A state of emotional or mental tension or strain that results from extremely demanding or stressful conditions.
The subject of tension or pressure.
In a biological or medical situation, stress can be an emotional, physical or emotional trigger that can cause bodily or mental tension. Stresses may occur externally (from the external environment or social contexts, etc.) or internal (illness caused by an operation, behaviour and so on.). Stress can trigger or trigger the “fight or fight” response, which is a complicated reaction that involves both the neurologic and the endocrinologic systems.
2: The results of stress
Similar to how chronic fatigue can be a result of the body’s efforts to manage stress, it could be triggered after the stress has subsided and in the period of recovery.
When the stress has subsided it is necessary for the body to recuperate and replenish the energy reserves that are depleted. In this time of recovery, it is common to be exhausted, worn out and emotionally exhausted.
In the case of the example, if you were to experience an incident of minor stress the body will recuperate fairly quickly. If the event was extended your body may require more time to recuperate. During the recovery phase, you will feel exhausted and fatigued until the body’s had the time to heal.
3: The aftermath of an anxiety episode
Anxiety-related behaviour (worry anxiety, worry, stress worry, anxiety, fretting.) is driven by the belief of imminent danger. Being aware that you are in danger can trigger the stress response which is why it’s referred to as”the fight or flight reaction. The more you are prone to anxious behaviour, the more stress-related responses your body creates. As the frequency and severity of stress response increase the levels of energy loss also rise.
Keep in mind that the process of exhaustion is a component of the stress response cycle.
Instead of fighting against the feeling of exhaustion, we prefer to be active and take the time it takes the body to recuperate. This will ensure that the body is in the process of recovery.
4: The effects that follow the anxiety attack (panic attack)
Anxiety attacks are extreme stress reactions triggered by intense fears or involuntary movements of a body that is overly stressed.
Stress results in high-level energy mobilization and can drain the body’s energy reserves quickly. And leave the body exhausted once the anxiety attack has finished.
If you’ve suffered from an anxiety attack or multiple attacks the body needs some time to recuperate and rebuild its energy reserves. While you wait you may feel tired, exhausted, tired and exhausted emotionally until your body is through its recuperation phase.
5: The negative consequences of excessive stimulation (chronic stress)
When stress-related reactions are not frequent it is possible for the body to recover fairly quickly from the physical, psychological-emotional and physical changes that the stress response triggers. If stress-related responses happen more frequently they are caused by fearful behaviour or from a major threat to health, it will have difficulty recovering, which could cause the body to remain in an unresolved state of stress response readiness. This state is known as “stress-response hyperstimulation” as stress hormones can be stimulants (also commonly called “hyperarousal”). Hyperstimulation may maintain the body’s survival mechanisms active, which may hinder the body’s recovery.
The constant activated survival system may drain the body’s energy sources and lead to a perpetual exhausted state. In the event that your body is not able to replenish and replenish its energy stores, it can be exhausted and lack energy.
6: Sleep disturbances can be caused by stress.
When we’re stressed or anxious stress hormones provide us with the energy needed to get moving. Although that “extra power” is great when we’re in need of it to do something, however, it could also interfere with the body’s capacity to rest and sleep. 
A lack of sleep causes the body to exhaust faster. Being exhausted for a long time is one of the signs of sleep lack.
Add chronic stress to insomnia and you’ve got the recipe for chronic fatigue.
7: Your diet might need adjusting
Stress can drain the body’s energy reserves more and faster than they would normally under regular stress, prolonged stress, for instance, caused by fearful and anxious behaviour is a way to deplete your body of essential nutrition (vitamins and minerals like magnesium, vitamin B iron, vitamin B and so on.). This is particularly true when you’re not eating well or enough frequently to replenish these essential nutrients. Deficiency in essential nutrients can result in periods of fatigue. An appointment with your physician or Nutritional Practitioner can determine if you suffer from an issue or not, and if so the nature of those deficiencies.
8: Chronic pain
The body is stressed by pain. If you’re suffering from chronic pain, your body may be stressed out for a long time. When the intensity of chronic pain gets worse so do the body’s stress levels.
As was mentioned previously, prolonged stress can strain the body’s energy reserves more than usual. When a person is continuously stressed, for instance, suffering from chronic pain, could suffer from chronic fatigue. Until the stress in the body is gone after the body’s had enough time to recuperate and rebuild its energy reserves.
