Weakness 

Weakness is an uncertain symptom. Weakness may refer to muscular weakness of a body area or whole body weakness. General weakness may also be caused by drowsiness, fatigue,  prostration, syncope and malaise. 

Lack of energy 

This condition is described as when a person is lackadaisical and without energy.

There are various causes of this condition following are the list

Hypothyroidism 

Hypothyroidism is a condition that usually occurs when the thyroid gland does not secrete enough thyroid hormone. This gland is located in the front part of the neck, and it releases hormones that manage the metabolism and use of energy. The insufficiency of thyroid hormone due to hypothyroidism decreases the body’s chemical processes and metabolism. This causes symptoms like fatigue and weight gain.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a usual chronic pain problem that causes intense fatigue that does not improve with rest.

Anemia 

It is a condition in which there is less than the normal number of red blood cells. Red blood cells transfer oxygen (O2) to tissues and organs to the body and permit them to use the energy from food. Without oxygen, tissues and organs specifically the heart and brain may not do their work as well as they should. As a result it causes fatigue and weakness. 

Anxiety 

Anxiety is simply defined as a feeling of  nervousness, worry or fear. It is a common feeling when a loved one is not well or a project you are working on is late.

Diabetes 

Diabetes is a term for a group of metabolic disturbance that affect the body’s capability to process and use sugar for energy. Usually when a person eats then the pancreas which are  located in the upper abdomen, secretes the hormone insulin to transfer glucose from the blood into cells where it can be used for energy. In diabetes, either the pancreas produce too little or no insulin, or the cells of the body don’t respond to the insulin. 

Depression 

Depression is defined as a mental illness that causes continuous low mood and a sense of sorrow. 

Fibromyalgia

Antibiotics 

If the healthcare provider doubts that you have an infection that has caused asthenia, he may prescribed antibiotics, either in a pill form or intravenous.  Do not stop taking pills once weakness is gone. 

Antidepressants 

Antidepressants are used for the treatment of depression and pain in adults. People having pain for a long period of time may become tired and depressed. This will cause weakness. 

venlafaxine 

Medications like venlafaxine acts by obstructing the “reuptake” of  the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and serotonin and declining the depressive symptoms and also decreases weakness. 

Corticosteroid 

Corticosteroids acts by reducing inflammation in many parts of the body. 

Erythropoeitin 

Erythropoeitin is a substance that produces by the body naturally.  This is a protein usually produced by the kidneys, which helps in making red blood cells. Darbepoetin alfa and epoetin alfa are similar drugs that act like this natural substance to enhance red blood cell formation. During chemotherapy, victims may not be able to produce sufficient red blood cells a condition known as anemia. Erythropoetic substitutes can treat anemia by enhancing the number of red blood cells in the body. 

Narcotics 

The central nervous system is a path for the brain to send messages to the body. It is highly alert, particularly when a person is experiencing pain. Victim may develop weakness or fatigue from chronic pain. Many narcotic analgesic act by obstructing pain messages like morphine sulfate and oxycodone.
