Weakness is the feeling of body fatigue, or tiredness. A person experiencing weakness may not be able to move a certain part of their body properly. They may also experience tremors, which are uncontrollable movements, or twitches in the area of weakness.
Some people experience weakness in a certain area of their body, such as the arms or legs. Others may experience full-body weakness, which is often the result of a bacterial or viral infection such as influenza or hepatitis. Weakness may be temporary, but it’s chronic or continuous in some cases.
What Causes Weakness?
Common causes of weakness include:
- the flu
- thyroid disease
- anemia, which can occur from excessive loss of blood during menstruation
- a lack of sleep
- poorly controlled or undiagnosed diabetes
- congestive heart failure
- vitamin B-12 deficiency
- medication side effects, which often occur when taking mild tranquilizers to treat anxiety
- polymyositis, which is an inflammatory muscle disease
Other causes of weakness include:
- a heart attack
- nerve or muscle injuries
- diseases affecting the nerves or muscles
- medication overdose
- vitamin overdose
Although weakness caused by cancer may appear slowly over an extended amount of time, weakness caused by a heart attack or stroke often occurs immediately.
In addition to experiencing weakness, other symptoms such as difficulty breathing, pain, and irregular heartbeat may occur. Call 911 if you experience sudden weakness. Don’t try to drive yourself to the hospital.
What Are the Symptoms of Weakness?
If you feel weak in one area of your body, you may find that you can’t move that part of your body efficiently. You may also experience:
- delayed or slow movement
- uncontrollable shaking, or tremors
- muscle twitching
- muscle cramps
Full-body weakness causes you to feel run down, similar to the feeling you get when you have the flu. This is known as fatigue, but it’s also possible to experience full- body weakness without feeling tired.
Some people who experience full-body weakness also experience fever, flu-like symptoms, or pain in the affected area.
