Varying causes:: There are several other causes for the fatigue you are experiencing. You could have a virus or be anemic (even though you "have a pretty healthy diet." Depression, stress and anxiety can also cause fatigue. Please discuss this with your doctor and have a full physical exam to help you figure it out.
