Asthenia is a condition that usually occurs with seasonal changes: It is a disorder that lasts for a while, where we feel tired even without even using much effort at all. This disorder is characterised by feeling both physical and mental fatigue where a lack of interest, vitality and constant weakness occurs. The cause is not as noticeable and is often confused with other conditions such as depression.
Asthenia is more common in women and occurs most frequently in the age range between 30 and 40 years.That said, it is not exclusive to women and it has been also found in men who are around this age.
