Fatigue | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

The role of the healthcare provider is to figure out the cause of fatigue. This is done by taking a complete history and doing a physical exam. In some cases, further tests may need to be done. This often involves blood tests, such as a CBC or complete blood count, but it may also include other tests based on the suspected condition. For example, a chest x-ray may be done if lung disease is thought to be the cause.
