Patient discussion about asthenic

Q. My doctor told me I have asthenia. Meaning I feel weak though I am normal. does it say i have a mental issue My doctor told me I have asthenia. which means I feel week but my strength is normal. I feel very weak but the doctor said that my muscle strength is fine. Do i have a mental problem or maybe there is a physiologic explanation for my situation?

A. No!
I suffered from hypothyroidism and had asthenia.
there are many causes for this symptom. Some are psychological but some are physical. Blaming your mental status is the last resort, and if your GP does it before he denies other reasons you need to change your GP!
