Fatigue (Physical) (1A)
Physical fatigue can be described as muscle weakness or a lack of endurance or stamina impacting a student's ability to concentrate or to maintain the energy to complete academic tasks. It can be caused by the loss of ability to recover from physical exertion which is a symptom of many autoimmune, muscle, and respiratory disorders, infections, stress, or depression. Physical fatigue can manifest as overall weakness or it can be targeted (e.g. fine motor fatigue).
