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?
