With countless bags balanced in both hands, and some more hanging on the shoulders, shades pursed between the lips and a scarf around the neck, that high-heeled vision of perfection walked down the Sunday boulevard. Looked from the right to left she did, then a red stiletto caught the glint of the sun as she attempted to cross the road. Wonder what happened then and how it came to be, but that thing of beauty was suddenly all dizzy. She stopped at the curb and retraced her steps back. To the sidewalk she came and dropped down onto the cobbled floor with the countless bags in one huge heap by her side. Everything turned black, then white and suddenly it was that she was fatigued beyond reason.
So the deal is that we might not have ever had a dramatic little incident like she just did, but feeling dizzy or fatigued at soccer practice or while standing in the grocery line, or making a run for the bus, we sure have experienced. Add to that the scores of other times that the same thing has happened to us and right there we have about a million times that getting dizzy and fatigued comes into the picture. Why exactly does that happen? What are the causes of the same and is there a need for us to worry?
Here's the deal, in as many times as you have felt dizzy and tired beyond reason, there are of course reasons for why it has happened. And since you're here perusing through the said article you are either confused, worried or curious about the same and need some clarifications. Let's get you some of these, but before that, the symptoms of the same.

Causes of Extreme Fatigue and Dizziness
It has, of course, left you worried. Why are you feeling all dizzy and why is there such forlorn tiredness plaguing you at all times? Why is it happening, really. There could be several causes that are playing spoilsport here. Like what? Like these...
Anemia
This is more common a cause than you'd like to believe. Anemia occurs when there is a lower than normal red blood cells count in the body which causes for oxygen deficiency thereby. Since there is less oxygen in the body, the functioning of the different organs does not happen efficiently enough and symptoms of fatigue and dizziness come about. Why? The heart has to work harder to provide the entire body with blood and oxygen.
Overexertion
Exerting the body beyond its normal limits - not getting enough sleep for the body to recuperate, not eating the right kind of food to provide for the right nutrition and added pressure and stress from undertaking excess work can take its toll on the body and lead to low energy levels, and lead to feeling fatigued and dizzy.
Dehydration
Dehydration is one of the main causes for why dizziness and fatigue can come about. How does this work? Lesser water in the body leads to a lowering of the blood pressure and slowing of the kidney functions which then automatically leads to feeling dizzy and fatigued.
Lowered Blood Glucose
Lowered blood glucose comes about when one skips their meals. Glucose is an important component which is required to convert the food into energy, thus no meals means that there is lesser energy to carry through ones work well, and the body reacts by making a person dizzy and fatigued so that there is lesser activity and thereby lesser stress on the body.
Medical Conditions
There are several medical conditions that can be the epitome of dizziness and fatigue causes. What are some of these? Ear infections directly affect the balance of the body and cause for this condition to come about. Similarly, certain heart conditions, diabetes, menstruation, pregnancy, thyroid imbalances, chronic fatigue syndrome and hormonal imbalances usually cite dizziness and fatigue as one of its main symptoms.
Environmental Factors
Along with these factors, there are several factors in the environment that can lead to this condition as well. Like what? Pollutants in the air, hazardous chemicals and such and such. These directly affect the person's breathing and can cause the pollutants to enter the body and thereby lower the functioning abilities.
There. These are some of the main reasons for why dizziness and fatigue make way. Now that we know what leads to this condition, we need to take things into our own hands and make sure that it does not lead to further complications. Following a balanced lifestyle, with proper and nutritious food, plenty of water, plentiful rest, less stress, more relaxation and getting a check up on things by consulting a doctor when things are beyond you, will ensure that you keep the situation under control. That's how you'll emerge happy and healthy. Good enough?
