Chronic Muscle Fatigue in Adults with Asthmatic Conditions

Asthma is a common health complication among adults and children. For many adults, the complications of asthma are well controlled by limiting environment and taking medications designed to well control asthma and the residual health complications of breathing.

If you live with asthma, you may be at a marked risk for complications associated with muscle fatigue and it is important, therefore, to know how to manage this condition effectively.

Chronic muscle fatigue among adults has grown in recent years and for many adults the complication is attributed to poor health, a pre-existing injury, or even improper diet.


When living with asthma, however, the complications associated with chronic muscle fatigue may be a direct result of your uncontrolled asthmatic condition.

Even if you feel as if your asthma is well controlled, there are residual effects that can result in chronic muscle fatigue.

So, how do you know if you have chronic muscle fatigue? Typically, symptoms of this condition will present as difficulty breathing and extreme muscle pain when moving about in normal course of your day.

Even without performing any exercises, and just moving in normal fashion, if you find that you are experiencing difficulty in movements that otherwise considered normal, this is certainly a marked indication of chronic muscle fatigue and should be evaluated by a healthcare professional.

Asthma creates a scenario of chronic muscle fatigue by limiting the supply of oxygen that is flowing to your muscles on a regular basis.

Again, even when you experience the best of health and minimal asthma symptoms, chronic muscle fatigue may still be a health complication.

Oxygen Mask

For patients who are confirmed with chronic muscle fatigue, the use of an oxygen supply machine may be necessary, especially at night when the body is most apt to rejuvenate and muscle repair is at its peak.

When living with asthma, if you feel that you are struggling to move about normally, ask your doctor about the role of chronic muscle fatigue and find ways to further enhance the control of your asthma symptoms by combining methods that will delivery more oxygen to your organs and bodily systems.
