Get care from home when you’re low on energy

Fatigue is often regarded as a non-serious problem. But, if you’re the one experiencing fatigue, you know it can be debilitating. The lack of energy, motivation, and willingness to get help can be problematic. Even if you want to get help, mustering the energy to travel to the doctor can feel like a burden. DispatchHealth offers a better way.

Our expert medical professionals can meet you at your house and assess the root cause of your fatigue, so you can focus on rest and recovery.

If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.

What causes fatigue?

Fatigue can have any number of causes. In short, it’s a sign that the body is struggling to keep up with its energy demands. Sometimes it can be caused by something simple like a calorie deficit or lack of sleep. On the other hand, it can also be a symptom of more serious health concerns. For example, the body may use excess energy in order to support an immune response, which makes the body tired. Fatigue can also be a sign of anemia.

If left untreated

If left untreated, the underlying cause of your fatigue may go undetected. So, when you’re feeling overly tired, it is best to consult a medical professional. DispatchHealth can help you get to the root cause of your fatigue and other non-life-threatening conditions. Contact us to learn more.
