Definition of Menopause Low Energy
Low energy or fatigue can be defined as ongoing lethargy, a persistent feeling of weakness, apathy or general tiredness.
Symptoms of Low EnergyLack of energy or fatigue resulting from menopause can have both physical and mental symptoms. Physical symptoms can include persistent drowsiness that is not alleviated by sleep, muscle fatigue, poor reaction time, decreased hand-eye coordination and sluggish digestion. Fatigue may be ongoing throughout the day or come and go, and is often most pronounced after meals.
Mental symptoms may include irritability, decreased attention span, inability to focus, difficulty in dealing with stress and moderating emotions and memory lapses.
Reduced attention span
Lack of coordination
Causes of Fatigue During Menopause
While increased sleep may not help alleviate the low energy levels associated with menopause, insomnia may make the symptom worse. During menopause, other seemingly unrelated symptoms, such as hot flashes and night sweats, can also sap energy levels.
However, the primary cause of menopausal low energy is hormone imbalances. Estrogen and progesterone have functions related to the sleep cycle. A lack of progesterone may make it difficult for a woman to fall asleep at all, while lowered amounts of estrogen will affect rapid eye movement (REM) – the periods of sleep that are crucial for the reconstructive activities of both body and brain.
Low energy during menopause can also have severely detrimental effects on quality of life for women. The hormonal imbalances that come with menopause can also cause mood changes in the brain, as important hormone levels decline and affect brain chemistry. These can lead to symptoms of menopause depression, such as loss of energy.
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Risks Caused by Fatigue
Physical symptoms of low energy – such as changes in reaction time or reduced coordination – can make women more prone to accidents. Low energy can also lead to mood problems, such as anxiety, depression and irritability as a result of fatigue.
As is the case with other cognitive symptoms of menopause – such as difficulty concentrating, irritability and mood swings – fatigue and lack of energy can endanger personal relationships and professional performance.
